Our tap slots are filling up for the Golden Taps and we're going to have a great lineup as usual.

If there are any brewers reading please get in touch with me (PM or email cass@bartowel.com) if you'd like to have your beer at the awards festival.

Wasn't our forum anniversary beer supposed to be tapped for this?
I don't always piss in a bottle but when I do...I prefer to call it Dos Equis.

Yes, it totally slipped my mind for the post. Will update it.

We'll have BT10BCDA on tap, with smaller samples so as many people can try it.

New post about Bar Towel beer!

http://www.bartowel.com/?p=2762

Just an update, we will not be having Indie Alehouse at the GTAs.

They will, however, be at Brewery Market on Sunday so if you're keen to try them you're going to have to come up to the Barns.

Who's all going to the GTA craft beer festival around 4ish? A group of us are heading up from London (myself, Milos, Farmer, Adil, Hayes, and possibly Dynes) and I'd love to chat with some of the Towellers who I haven't met before, in addition to the familiar faces who will no doubt be in attendance. If you see a chubby bald guy with a grey Welly shirt on, drop by and say hi! :D

I plan to be there tomorrow. Probably closer to the beginning and unlikely I'll be able to stay through the awards handouts.

Looks like a great beer line-up. Lots of new things on there to try out and some familiar favourites.
