Yes, the CAMRA Great British Beer Festival 2016 was a hoot (or whatever noise hawks make).
We came, we saw, we paraded a surprisingly heavy hawk costume around Olympia.
We provided arguably the best seating area at GBBF (or any beer festival ever, if you ask us!), and we're also proud sponsors of CAMRA's Champion Bottled Beer of Britain awards being announced later this year!
Now the beer has been mopped up, the casks returned, the Beer Hawk returned to its nest (next to Zoe's desk), it's time to wipe the sticky beer off the memory card and look at some of the best pictures from the Great British Beer Festival 2016 - or at least the ones we dare publish.
