#Collabfest2017 part eight: Sheffield

(viewed 276 times)

Ah, balls. We're down to our last five beers, and we're at Clapham, which has just one of them in stock. Of the other London bars, Shepherd's Bush and Camden had none of the remaining four when we were there today: Soho has tweeted that they're down to their last eight, all of which we've drunk: Clerkenwell is closed: and Shoreditch is obligingly tweeting arty out-of-focus pictures of their board (there's a reason why Shoreditch Twat was a popular phrase a decade ago). So I think we're going to have to call a halt to this after 30 out of 34 possible beers. Here's the last one...

30. Abbeydale Brewery Ltd / BrewDog Sheffield: Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy (Lemon Curd on Toast Inspired Ale, 5.50%)
It's a bland one to finish up on - there's no real evidence of the promised lemon in there. It's just cold and fizzy, with a bit of mustiness to increase the disappointment a bit. Tiny bit of lemon somehow coming through at the bottom of our half pint, just about justifying the larger measure.

So we've missed out on the beers from Cardiff (Rock Lobster), Gothenburg (A Guy Called Fudge), Leicester (Mango Innit) and Manchester (Higher State). Some of them might turn up in bars in the future, but our hopes for that aren't especially high. We're consoling ourselves with another glass of Aberdeen's Very Big Moose, which is probably our favourite from the weekend (and everybody else's, judging from the ongoing Untappd poll). It seems like a bit of a cliché given that it's the only 12% monster on the board, but it's a worthy winner, and it's moderately amazing that Clapham still have it on tap this late in the weekend. If you're near the bar right now, hurry, hurry, hurry.

Can we have real-time availability updates from the bars ready in time for #Collabfest2018, please?
