St George's Day

Our national day, and where better to drink a toast to the old dragon slayer than the Willoughby Arms in Kingston which is hosting its annual St George's Day Beer Festival - on now until Saturday.

Get there today from 7pm to see the Ewell St Mary Morris Men in action.

Downton Chocolate Orange Dark Delight is sadly not on the list so hopefully it will make for a slightly less messy afternoon. Although Fullers Golden Pride appears as a rarity in cask so anything is possible.

The Willoughby Arms is Kingston CAMRA branch pub of the year for 2009 - a deserved winner in an area of Kingston that is blessed with good drinking holes.

Other events in my locality where I may appear later in the week are The Ailsa Tavern in Twickenham (well, St Margarets really) and The Andover Arms in Hammersmith (well, Ravenscourt Park really) - both hosting small beer festivals from today to Saturday.

Drink up and celebrate all things that make this country great.

Thanks for the plug, Steve.

The Andover fest starts tomorrow (Friday) with 10 guest beers + the Fuller's range. A variety of food is available. Also, live music on Friday & Saturday evenings.

Not forgetting that QPR are at home, as if you didn't know!
