@indymanbeercon ‘18 🍺🍺🍺 Well and truly Indyman’d. Double sessioned Saturday and didn’t have a bad beer. My favourites were Mills’ Running Beer, Other Half’s coffee stout and probably Lervig’s 3 Bean (again) or a taste of a mate’s Cloudwater Parkin Cake with matching Parkin Cake donut. The worst was a toss up between The Veil’s [something] Tastee and a Wylam Farmhouse IPA, but they were both decent enough.
That marshmallow’d soft serve one, Buxton’s Extra Stout, didn’t really work. It’s a big, bitter, black roasty dry beer so it had a bitter, black, roasty dry frozen gloop on top, which wasn’t particularly pleasant. Quite like it done with a sweet beer and I’m a big fan of this beer without the soft serve.
Two gripes, the first is that things like Other Half’s stuff was gone far too early. Went to the stand for my third beer in the day session and the board was wiped clear. Made sure I got there first for the evening session but then missed the Veil’s best because of it. The second gripe is the portable urinals were shit this year, last year those 4 way ones were sound, this year I was pissing arse to arse with a wobbly drunk bloke pissing on himself. Bring back those 4-way ones next year @indymanbeercon ...
