Episode 9 - The Great British Beer Festival

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! 

Search through the hundreds of beers available using the GBBF online Beer Selector.Tweet us your thoughts - @TheBeertalkers - if you get to try it or if you want to tell us what you think of any other beers you try at GBBF. 

The Great British Beer Festival continues at London Olympia until Saturday 16th August. Tickets are £10 or £8 for CAMRA members if you buy online. The Festival is open from 12 noon - 10.30pm Weds, Thurs and Fri. 1
