Mead the ultimate Metal drink? More a drink for those with a very sweet tooth and wasps. :lol:

Besides that, £25 (plus inevitable festival mark up) for a small bottle? :o

I think I'll pass....


At least Kaltenburg is vaguely drinkable compared to some of the other alternatives. It could be far worse.

Expect the Hobgoblin Gold & IPA to run out by Friday lunchtime and to drink Kaltenburg for the rest of the weekend.

Fucking yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! \o/


If anyone asks where I am, I'm at the bar.

(I'm also bringing 4L of homebrew, so if I'm not at the bar, I'm passed out in my tent...)

That'll be the tent with thousands of wasps outside then... :P

One advantage of the inevitable rain is that it'll keep the wasps away.

Never had much of a problem with wasps at Bloodstock before. Maybe because I drink my booze instead of wearing it. :P

I'm bringing cans of Hobgoblin, Hobgoblin Gold, Hobgoblin IPA and I've got a 70cl bottle of JD honey to decant :D

Don't forget there are around 30 ales in Lemmy's bar so ale drinkers won't be restricted to Hobgoblin! I've also heard there's gonna be a cider bar next to Lemmy's too... :eyes:

That was the festival that got me over my fear of wasps. Saw heavily tattooed guys running and flailing at the sight of a wasp and it made me think whether a wasp sting or a tattoo hurts more. Figured it probably leans more towards tattoos. Also worked in a kitchen at the time and burned myself regularly. So if I could put up with tattoos and burns, I’m not going to spill my beer running from a fucking wasp.
