I don't know English beers so I'm just going to try all of them, several times over. :D

Call me a heathen but I always drink cider at festivals as cans get warm in the campsite and cider is much more palatable than ale or lager when warm. Furthermore lager and cider in the arena usually costs the same amount but the cider generally tends to be a higher abv% than the cooking lager that is served to the masses. This may change this year though if Trooper is the same price and has a higher abv than the cider on offer.

I also have a tradition of homebrewing elderflower champagne to take with me for festivals which I then mix with gin to make even more lethal. It tastes magnificent though.

At download last year, Trooper cost the same (iirc) but was in much smaller containers. Bottles might have been 330ml, something like that. Much less than a pint anyway.

Especially weird because it came with a free plastic cup that was enormous. Could have fit two bottles in there :lol:

They won't take it off you, they are not going to police consumption as you should be able to do that yourself.

personally however I would recommend taking 1 or 2 crates in and leaving some in the car that you can fetch if you run out. The carpark is close and it wouldn't be the first time that crates have gone missing out of tents.
