Early on Saturday morning I arrived, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, at Emily's front door, and then we walked 3 miles down to the Navy yards where we were working at the Snallygaster Beer Festival once again. But this year although it was starting off cloudy, the sun was trying its hardest to wiggle through the clouds and there was definitely not a hint of rain, which had put the proverbial damper on our volunteer efforts last year. So we were off to a great start.
We did manage to grab a half hour as our lunch break but had to give up any idea of food because sampling a couple of beers just had to be accomplished and the lines were long.
We rushed back to the gate so others could run for their lunch and ended up being very busy until well after 2pm when only a few stragglers were trailing in. We were released from duty with only an hour or so before the pumps were shut down so without further ado we set off at a brisk pace following Emily who had a printed list of 'must be supped' beers.
We made our way back to the gate later to see if any help was needed and found that Rob had appeared.
