13:00 visit. Good to be back here after missing last years 10th edition. Good crowd already in and plenty of familiar faces too. Organiser John Brice, has certainly established this successful b/f. I stayed until 6pm and sampled some decent ales.

The pub is found in Chatham, Kent, ME4 6BB.

This, the 11th edition, held at the impressive Stanley Ballroom at the rear of the St George Hotel, on New Road Avenue, entrance in Gundulph Lane. A large, open plan, old type venue, with plenty of seating. Live music for the evening sessions and good value hot food on offer. Three bar areas selling over 50 real ales, plus a large selection of cider, perry and foreign beers. This very successful and popular annual event is run and licensed by local landlord John Brice of the King George V in nearby Brompton (Gillingham), with the help of many unpaid volunteers. Recommended.

We have visited this pub once, seen 10 different beers and tried them all.
