A reasonable smattering of members made the journey to Staverton Station for the annual Beer Festival ably presented by the Devon Diesel Society on a glorious summer day. There were about 45 real ales, 3 ciders and 10 'Craft' beers in a separate bar. Beers and Ciders were all £4.00 per pint, £2.00 per half. 18 of the real ales were served by handpump, the rest by gravity

The ones I tried were in good form, however, personally, I felt there were too many Pale Ales and IPAs and too few amber, malty ales.
