It's always been shit beer in the Bloodstock Arms, except in 2007 when we actually had some Bloodstock real ale...till it ran out.

Hope it changes because Hobgoblin will never be a session beer.

Some good bottled beer is a must or some decent cider.

I wonder if we could go retro and get Thunderbird wine!

Carling Cider for Bloodstock - never heard of the stuff?

Nice to see it will be down to £4 a pint though!

Really? Urgh :ugh: I never bother with the booze in the arena and certainly won't be starting for that crap.

From my reading of the announcement it was that price for all the bars.

No it didn't. I hazily remember watching a chugging contest between fellow bar staff, who were given massive jugs of the stuff. Junktion 7 in Nottingham also failed to get through a couple of leftover barrels in the following days.

These days, Burton Bridge brewery just down the road produces a special Bloodstock beer each year, and I'm fairly sure it's sold in the Arms or the Sophie tent.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I'm actually quite glad I normally don't drink at all.

They quite often sell Wychwood Bloodstock Ale in Home & Bargain for £1.50 a bottle. They've also had it as a guest in The Swan.

I've just noticed in the list of sponsors the dreaded name Coors. :hurl:
