Pete, might I be as bold to point out similar events happening in both leeds and huddersfield - more info in this post - http://goodpeopleeats.blogspot.com/2010/07/porkslappin-north.html - Good US beer does get north of Watford, you know!!

Nice lineup. Several are local beers to me. Hope they are fresh.

Excellent line-up there, the Imperial and strong stouts in particular. Tenfidy's Imperial Stout is as good as Courage's Russian Imperial Stout was, maybe better. The London cognoscenti are in for a treat.

In many ways, most of those beers are returning to England tastes and ABV levels not seen for generations there.

I think the craft/real ale fans in London will be hugely impressed by these beers.

Southern Tier's 2xipa is actually 8.3% ABV.

Oh wow, I'm so there! I guess it's not too late to try the Great Divide anniversary beer after all.
