The TWICB Team attended the ‘Trade Day’ on Friday, 5th May, with the session scheduled from 11:30 am until 5 pm. This meant that my golden rule of never drinking before noon immediately went out the window!
Our trade tickets allowed us access to free pours of craft beer throughout the session, and we happily mingled with other trade guests, brewers, and visitors.
It must be said, however, that there were significant brewery absences, and the beer selections were nowhere near as plentiful as last year.
Fortunately there was plenty of seating available to sit down, sup beer and relax. The toilets were close by and very clean and well looked after during the day.
Although the beer selection was not quite up to scratch, the food court had a fabulous selection of delicious street food, including pizza, curry, duck, burgers, chicken, and BBQ food.
We spent several hours here and chatted happily with brewers and friends in the trade.
