Back to the station and the beer festival marquee was a little too crowded, so I made use of this excellant station refreshment room and current gbg entry for 2011. 7 ales and 2 ciders on. It has been in the gbg over 30 times, between 1978-88/91-2009/10. Very impressive. I must return to Bridgnorth again and stay over to do more exploring. Recommended.
Hobsons - Best Bitter3.80ExceptionalThis LocAle was found all over and, was excellant.
Worfield - Coalport Dodger Mild4.20ExceptionalA five star mild. Superb. It was put on as I was about to depart, so, I had a swift half to end this great day in Bridgnorth. And to cap it all, I caught "Slug 6" (37906) back to Kidderminster for a truly noisy ride! Fantastic.
Cottage - Hurricane Ale4.70ExcellentA new ale and in top condition here.
