Glad I never paid extra to go to the VIP bar. Not much in the way of rare ales and most of the ciders are flavoured crap. In fact most of them you would find in 'Spoons.

They're doing this jager cocktail thing.

Oh, so not Pimm's. I was going to say, the combination of Pimm's and Jäger sounded positively horrendous, haha!

Yeah will probably be able to spot the people drinking it by the amount of arms flailing. :)

Was quite impressed by the amount of ales available, better then just having the usual generic lagers on offer :)

Intriguing, although I wonder if that's 20 different types of drinks in the normal bar or 20 different types of beer? If it's 20 different beer/ales it seems a lot for the standard bar and might get a bit awkward when there's loads of people ordering.

I'm not getting my hopes up, and fully expect there to be just one watered down lager and one fizzy gnats piss cider like always. As for 120 in the VIP, at least two-thirds of them will be off all weekend, as usual.

There was at least 20 different beers last year. It was like a mini beer festival at the end of the Bloodstock Arms.

Ah. I didn't go last year for the first time.

I guess this must have been something they brought in last year then, as there was an extremely small choice in previous years.
