Great British Ale Festival: Peasant, 240 St. John Street, Clerkenwell, EC1V 4PH

I must have angered the Beer Gods. Yet another Beer Festival that I am unable to enjoy. Visiting the Peasant in Clerkenwell last night the set up had begun for their Great British Ale Festival. It runs from tonight until the 4th of April, but all  I could do was eye the racked beer and flick through the laminated brewery logo’s or as I think I termed them “Beery Porn”, I mean they’re laminated after all.
