Should I volunteer or just go and drink beer?

Greetings Intertwitters.

I have just received my annual invitation help out at the St Albans beer festival.

I am promised free beer and food and associated frivolity if I provide my beer pulling services (as yet un-honed).

However, there must presumably be some limit to ‘on-duty’ consumption, as presumably it would be rather un-seemly to be found ‘drunk in charge of a barrel of ale, even at a beer festival?

So…. should I just go and drink beer with my mates?

St Albans Beer festival. It lasts for 4 days Stompy.

Volunteer for the first 2 days and refrain from excessive pintage – no more than 4 every 6 hours. Sleep under the main stage in amongst the crash mats and emerge on day 3 as a free and liberated man. Drink happily in the knowledge that you’ve spent the previous 2 days in pursuit of helping the common good.

Your 2 days of accumulated pint quality knowledge will mean that you’ll know what the best tipples are. And you’ll probably receive a free t-shirt, glass, keyring and beer towel. Maybe a hat.

Do both. Do it.
