Well the day has arrived. We are open today from 5pm! Beers are all ready. We have a few changes to the beer list (I’ll change the beer list on here asap but nothing major). Remember we will have beer list printed and ready for you so save your paper and pick take one of ours. Ciders are arriving throughout the day and continental beers are all nicely chilled.
Music tonight is tribute themed (Freddie Mecury / Thin Lizzy and ACDC) that kicks off around 6pm.
The Comet published an article about us and just want to clear up a few errors in that. We are not Balstock and we are not raising money exclusively for Mencap. Balstock will be here supporting us by putting on the acoustic stage (and raising money for themselves). Also Mr Speaker will be on the acoustic stage Saturday and they will be raising money for Mencap. Both great causes so dig deep into those pockets and help them raise as much as they can as the acoustic stage is being put on for free! For your enjoyment.
Enough said see you at 5! (bring a coat later – chilly……. Or get your beer coat on!)
We had a meeting of the beer festival committee on Monday and things are progressing nicely. Dave has been working hard with a group of us to choose the foreign beers for this years festival and they have all been ordered. We will get a list up on this site as soon as we can.
Food stalls have been booked and will include the usual fare (Indian, West Indian, BBQ) plus ice cream and sweets on Saturday and Sunday for the kids.
Thanks to all bands that have asked if they can play at the festival. We are finalising the bands and will be contacting you as and when we can but unfortunately we will not be able to slot everybody in this year.
Ciders are currently being selected by Paul and Gayle and will be locally produced. We will publish lists as soon as we get them.
We will be selecting ales later in the month so watch this space.
That just about sums up where we are at the moment. See you all soon.
