GREAT BRITISH BEER FESTIVAL
Brighton Metropole

Saturday 9 August 1986

After travelling the country the GBBF returned to the South and in the second year at the Brighton Metropole we decided to visit. Camping, along with our better halves, some way away from the venue, we only managed to visit for the lunchtime session.
The beer was already running out fast and most of the smaller breweries beers had already gone. We were left with stuff we would not normally bother to try.
