Derby summer beer festival

This evening Me and Neil went to the Derby CAMRA summer beer festival at the Assembly Rooms in Derby. We had a great time here trying out lots of different real ales. Non of that weak lager nonsence here ;-)
A lot of the beers this year had a football theme. The ones we tried were, World Cup, Western Front, and Svengal Tiger. We also tried a really nice Belgium beer called Piraat which was a whopping 10.5% in strength, but it tasted really nice. We also had an export Guiness that was 8.5%
There was a couple of decent bands on in the evening also. One of them was a really good band called Wam Bam Soul Band, and the other was called Gate crasher, who were a rock covers band. Both bands were good. Well they sounded good, but we were very drunk at that point.

The above is a poster for the Svengal Tiger beer that we tried. Neil liked it so much he took a picture.
