The current collection of seminars from the well remembered mecca of beer festival rioting, Newton Abbot.  As if the combination of intense sociability from Dean and Teresa and a superb festival was not enough, when Phil White ran the famous Lock Stock and Barrel xmas parties, it really was the scooper's Ibiza !! (well, it's near the sea I suppose).  Add to this the late lamented Star Balti, and you have a recipe for much rioting.  Which is exactly what happened!

I'm not sure if any of us have ever thanked Dean and Teresa for putting up with us all rioting and taking over their house, so a big "Cheers" from me, and I'm sure many others who fondly remember the "old times"!
