The fest runs thru Saturday, but starting Friday it gets very crowded, so we usually go pub walking instead.
My tradition is to drink ciders and perries on the last day. I started off with a couple of Welsh Perries that were quite nice.
Lunch was Chicken Tikka and a couple of porters from Cornwall.

The rest of the afternoon was trying all the porters and stouts I had missed the other days. Soon the hall was so crowded you had to fight your way to the front to get a beer. That is the signal to leave.
So I had once last beer. It was the only full pint I ordered at the fest and the only non-British beer: Schlenkerla Märzen from Bamberg, gravity fed from a wooden barrel. They don't go thru it as fast here as they do in Bamberg so it was not quite as fresh but still very nice.
Friday will be more walking around London, drinking beer.
