Only one thing for it - to bring one's own and sip it furtively between songs.  A sort of Secret Drinker, in fac Roll Eyest...

The only consolation for me of not being able to come is the thought of you all grimly chasing shorts with... more shorts?

Too bad. We'll just have to make do with the Latour '82, of which I'm sure there's a huge stash in the cellar.Undecided  And probably too many import restrictions for me to supply the event free of charge with my prizewinning handcrafted ales (I kid you not).
 
Looking forward to it no end.
 
Best,

Oh well. A mixed blessing. Can't see me drinking John Smith's, and I'm sure the girls in the band wouldn't touch it. But at least I might be able to persuade one of them to drive us and our guitars to PoD now.

I am, of course, still sulking but I must break my silence to put things in perspective: I spent this evening in a taproom contain eight casks of delicious gravity fed ales and drank lime and soda all night because I was the driver.  Fortunately, the band was great and I can heartily recommend Rag Ma Ma Rag (the band, that is, rather than the song) to all you blues lovers out there.  And now I shall take my very sober head off to bed.

As an alternative to the forbidden cask, might it be possible to have mine host(ess) stock the bar with some decent bottled beer? And keep it cool for the duration? My own recent (and admittedly limited) experience with English cask beer has been disappointing, and I have better brew from bottles.
 
Best to all and see you soon.

Well, I agree that English cask beer can be disappointing - but then OTOH it is often superb! Smiley
 
But I agree that there are plenty of bottled beers around that would be preferable to the nitrokeg on offer. I'd prefer to drink Guinness if there's nowt else palatable (they do have Guinness, don't they? Tell me they do! Huh )
 
Cheers

Yikes - this thread is too long to read.  
Theo, I hope the cask idea is still a goer. Ali and I will be happy to put in shares if it is (and unless it's oversubscribed).  
Just thinking about it is beginning to worry me.
