Bus tour continues. Went to shivering sands but no beer over 4.7% so jumped back on bus to wantsum. Not a great selection considering what they sell in ramsgate. £4 squid for everything.
Wantsum - UXB?4.60ExcellentRaspberry porter. Lovely.
Wantsum - Overland6.00ExcellentQuality hazy ipa...possibly keg. Therefore £4 a bargain.

Sunday lunch quiet at noon but very busy by 2:30 by which time live music was underway.
Wantsum - 13813.80ExcellentPeasants’ Revolt? Not if they were drinking this. Superb.
Wantsum - Black Prince3.90ExcellentAnother in fine condition.
Wantsum - Imperium4.00AcceptablePast it’s best. Rather flat.

Sunday lunchtime - a beer club brewery tour ongoing - the cost included “drink as much as you want” apparently. Loads of activity in and outside. A really good vibe - for a big shed!
Wantsum - Hurricane4.50ExcellentI almost felt guilty paying just £3.50 for beer this good.
Wantsum - Beer Day Special5.00ExcellentTraditional bitter with a bit of wellie.

Mid afternoon - surprisingly quiet. Bought myself a rather nice branded 1/2 pint sleeve glass for just £2.
Wantsum - Coronation Ale6.00ExcellentJust a half of this as I was cycling - I was severely tempted for some more though. I believe Wantsum has created two different strengths of this special event ale.
Wantsum - Imperium4.00AcceptableNot a lot of life in this.

Huge crowd in for a birthday party. Lots of beers on, all at £3 a pint.
Wantsum - Transatlantic Fog6.00ExceptionalSuperb. A hazy IPA on keykeg but it will be available in cask at the Thanet beer festival in 2 weeks
Emelisse - TIPA (Triple IPA)10.00ExcellentThis was brewed by Wantsum and was excellent. At only £3 a pint, I shouldnt have had as many as I did as I cant remember what happened next....
