Elvis Lives! (in a Brewery), Station 119, Eye, Suffolk - 29th March 2018

New-ish US-style micro-brewery "Station 1-1-9" holds an official "new premises" party up at its warehouse on Eye Airfield industrial estate. The problem is that we're cycling and the weakest beer - which is a robust 5.something % - runs out straight away, leaving beers of 6.4% and up. At least there's an entertaining Elvis-based entertainer on hand to distract us from the impending doom and lost weekend...
