Sorry for the lack of activity on here recently - it seems as though everyone is busy with other things.
A quick update on the competition for Leeds International Beer Festival. After gladiator night in the previous post, three beers ended up going through to the final selection process, the eventual winner being Matt Lovatt's summer ale - a pale, slightly tart beer designed for maximum summer refreshment.
At the festival, the beers from the respective homebrew groups were judged against each other, and in a marginal decision, Leeds vanquished their Mancunian rivals by 3 votes to 2. Hurrah for the White Rose!
Matt's beer was brewed for the festival at Kirkstall Brewery, who clearly liked what he did, because they offered Matt a job. Hurrah again!
