I'd been looking forward to this for weeks as both Ron and the brewer, Peter Haydon, would be there so it was set to be a beery bonanza for beer bores blather.

Knowing he'd be there was a considerable cause of excitement for me, and my prior plan of taking it easy on my liver but turning up half way through the proceedings went straight out the the window. No way could I risk missing him.
As it happens he took the sensible option and turned up part way through the proceedings, a little apprehensive that his online run-ins with Ron might be a cause of friction. But he had no reason to worry, pubs are much more sociable places than the internet.

It was a cracking do, and well worth the subsequent slow start to Sunday I suffered.
