Episode 5 - GBBF special

We recorded the fifth episode of The Beertalkers live at the Great British Beer Festival (GBBF) at London's Olympia. The event is organised annually by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and usually attracts more than 50,000 visitors making it Britain's biggest pub.

Sam and Sophie walk you round GBBF sampling a selection of the beers on offer to give you a flavour of what to expect if you're attending the festival later this week - or to make you jealous if you're not.

The beers we sampled are:

Fyne Ales Jarl (4%) - available from bar B2.

Brains (Craft Brewery) Bragging Rights (5%) from the Brains bar.

Saltaire Triple Chocoholic (4.8%) from bar B19.

DBC Dorset Knob (3.9%) from bar B5.

Girardin Kriekenlambic (5%) from bar B1.
