Brewery Open Day - Triple FFF

The annual family vacation meant that things have been pretty quiet on the brewing front for the last couple of weeks. And although it's never nice returning to the daily grind after a decent break, the prospect of a brewery open day softened the blow a little.

Three days after returning from France, the Triple FFF brewery threw open their doors for their annual open day.

Based in the village of Four Marks in Hampshire, a history of the brewery can be found here. In addition to the beer, there was musical entertainment and food cooked on a massive paella pan over an open fire.

and some classic two-wheeled transport.

Whilst there, CAMRA awarded Triple FFF with further awards for Moondance and Pressed Rat And Warthog 

I managed to try both, along with Alton's Pride (supreme champion beer of Britain in 2008), Dazed and Confused, Elder Skelter and Jabberwocky, a really tasty black IPA.

A cracking day, good beer, good company and terrific weather. As for me, I'm firing up my brewery again tomorrow. Revisiting my Citra Pale Ale which won me a bronze at last year's National Homebrew Competition.
