The Beverages!

Right, well the festival opens in 16 hours (eeeeek!) and we sort of have the beverages list together finally.

It’s complicated curating a list of 20 cask beers, 18 keg beers, 8 still ciders, 2 sparking ciders, and wines consisting of 2 reds, 2 whites, a rose and a “frizzante” sparkling wine. And then there’s also the fridge stock of beers and sodas.

This is our potential starting lineup tomorrow… though what goes on will somewhat depend on whether we feel beers are ready.

(Unfortunately the copy-paste from spreadsheet is losing my pretty colours! 🙁 )
