Thanks for arranging this, James.

Well, we (a fairly select group, given the weather) ate it out of steak
sandwiches and drank it out of Curiosity Cola.  I'm not entirely sure
whether that qualifies as beating the previous attempt, but it's
probably a first.

It was fun.  I really liked the pub -- the staff were friendly, they had
a nice range of soft drinks, and the food gave the impression of both
the menu being designed and the meals prepared by somebody who cares.

I learnt that Stephen has a beer review podcast, The Beer Crate, which
can be found here:

He also had a print-on-demand beer-related book which looked worth
reading, but I've been unable to locate where that's available from.

Probably we were _able_ do do that, but apparently it didn't occur to
any of us (and certainly not those of us who were hogging a radiator).

Eeek -- sorry to hear that.
