Typical real ale fan!
In fact, my quiet appreciation of these events once inspired me to set up a Google alert for 'real ale' in 'south London.' When you're used to spending £4+ on a pint of lager after queuing at a noisey bar for 10 minutes, the steady calm of middle-aged men noting the 'hoppy finish' of a drink called 'Badger's Dilemma' can really soothe the soul.
I received an alert today for the first time in a while. When I clicked through to the event, I spat out my tea like a CAMRA member caught sipping Fosters:
That's right. There's going to be a naked/nude/naturist real ale festival in 50 acres of woodland near Orpington. The usual real ale festival attire of Deep Purple t-shirts, leather waistcoats and cargo shorts full of small change will be replaced by birthday suits, and lord knows that's not something I want to see. And even if I did, I certainly wouldn't want to hear any Jazz while I drank cider in the nude.
If you're of a different persuasion, then head down to the festival on 25 June.
