We may be living in a new age of all things brewed but CAMRA's Great British Beer Festival (aka GBBF) is a traditional highlight in the beer calendar that is still a 'must do'.
We make our annual pilgrimage to the temporary cask ale cathedral of Olympia and sample a few brews to whet your appetite.
The beers we tried were:
Burning Sky Plateau (3.5%) - from bar B4.
Moor Beer Revival (3.8%) - from bar B15
Ilkley Brewery The Trader (4.8%) - from Bar B18.
We were too slow to get a taste of the Champion Beer of Britain: Timothy Taylor Boltmaker (4%) but we're told more casks are expected to be delivered to Bar B18 during the rest of the Festival so you might be luckier than we were!
