Sometimes the most spontaneous ideas are the best. As a Portsmouthian I am no stranger to beer festivals, we enjoy a fair few here. However when someone pitches the idea of cycling to Hayling Island for a bijou beer festival held in a community centre, finding reasons to say no are virtually impossible. OK, so the ride was a tad wet, but going off road down the Billy Line is always fun, and it took us pretty much to our destination. Like I said, this was a very small affair compared to what we enjoy here, but it was fun, good natured with plenty of kitsch entertainment. I also found a rather good use for the Strong Island enamel mug, fits a half perfectly. Over three hours of beer festival followed by the ferry home is pretty much spot on for a Saturday afternoon. Will return next year.
The feedback forms were fun too.
