Salopian - Sienna4.40ExcellentA tasty, hoppy, golden beer.
Tap East - Poplar Pale Ale3.80GoodA malty, golden beer that has appeared at various different strengths up to 5.0% over the years, although not brewed for some time until recently.

Tap East’s own beers are in sparse supply just now as they are recruiting a new brewer and stocks were much depleted by the crowds attending recent athletics events.

Tap East - Tonic Ale3.00ExcellentThe HBC431-hopped version of this beer. Very fresh.
Bristol Beer Factory - Fortitude4.00GoodA malt-led Amber Ale. Way above average for the style I thought.
Legitimate Industries - Timeshare Scam4.50GoodFrom keg. Cloudy yellow/gold. A well-hopped Wheat Beer. Very tasty although a bit over-carbonated for my tastes.

Sunday evening after the crowds have gone. I spent time chatting with a friend who had enjoyed a day exploring the pubs of Sandwich and Deal and had just arrived back in Stratford on the Bullet Train.

Squawk - Sorachi Stout7.10ExceptionalBlack, with a brown head. A beautiful, full-on, dry, roasted Stout with lovely Sorachi Ace hop flavours. Perfect.
Tap East - A.P.A. (American Pale Ale) 4.30ExcellentIn top form.
TicketyBrew - Summer IPA6.00GoodGolden. Obviously a strong beer, but not as full-bodied as you would expect for the abv.

Brief early evening visit. Not too busy despite a local athletics event. Keg beers here at amazingly rising prices, a Japanese one at £9.50pp and a 5.5% Arbor at £7.50. And people are buying!
