    congratulations in your success i hope this brazen open display of offering vintage cultured beverages is one you will get to enjoy without any adverse effects on others. be reminded of those of who over indulged in such like my dad now deceased god bless him. i recall the days when he was bursting veins on his bloated abdomen spraying blood all over the walls. it took me 7 years to detox the old chap. 5 detoxes in hospital, countless monies spent by the nhs, until they managed to stabilize him all because he had a penchant for fine wine, reel beer, and vintage brandy and whisky. formula uno is not allowed to advertise tobacco so why is the system allowed to promote this, surely its just another posh way of getting p*ssed? i still think this is just a load of old ball **** and an excuse for a good time. was there a collection pot for the poor an disenfranchised? or did you spend any extras on the lavish muscled head security that i saw walking in that direction? real ale, you need to get life ! ! !
    Yes I suppose the fact your father was a hopeless drunk coupled with the ban on tobacco advertising in motor sport would logically mean organised well run beer festivals should be banned.

    Good thing we have rational brain boxes like you to point out such things."
