Threaded View
I was looking through the London Drinker. That is one great magazine; it's  
the mag of the London Branch of Camra and it is given away free in a lot of
 real ale pubs.

It has adverts for beer festivals all over Britain, and the current one has
 an advert for the Isle of Wight Beer and Buses Festival.

That is held on the weekend of 14th & 15th October 2017. The vintage buses  
are free to travel on, although they prefer it if you have a program. I hav
e indeed bought the program and it is £6.

There is a list of the beers here:
Many of them are not unusual at all. Fuller's London Pride won't be on my U
RGENT list, nor Timothy Taylor Landlord. I've had plenty of them. I'll be t
rying Yates's On The Buses, though, among others.

I'll be staying at Sandown, and the Castle has the following selection of b
Long Man
Scary Man Trick or Treat
Open Casket
Chockwork Orange
Vectis Venom
Black Annis Porter
Trooper Red & Black
Green hopped IPA
Bombardier Burning Gold
Bombardier Glorious English
Hobgoblin Gold.

Note to self:

"We're really pleased to announce that Southern Vectis are again offering t
heir fantastic Rover Ticket deal for the weekend of our event. By showing y
our programme when boarding a Southern Vectis bus, you can buy the ticket f
rom the driver for just £15. The ticket offers you UNLIMITED travel on
 the comprehensive network of Southern Vectis bus routes from Friday 13th u
ntil Monday 16th October 2017 inclusive.

The special Rover Ticket is ideal for getting to and from ferry ports using
 normal buses on the Friday and Monday of our event, whilst you can also us
e it to get out and about in the evenings or when the special Beer and Buse
s routes have stopped operating.

It could also be very useful if things get very busy during the event, as m
any of our routes run parallel to the Southern Vectis Network.
