On behalf of the club I would like to express my personal gratitude to all those who contributed to the magnificent beer festival held over the period Wednesday 15th June to Saturday 18th June 2016. To say this was a fantastic success is an understatement.


It never ceases to amaze me what a talented bunch we have within the club who have the ability and drive to organise such tremendous and highly successful events. My only complaint was a 'delicate head' on Sunday morning although I guess I should take some personal responsibility for this!

For all of you who supported the event you will be aware that this was our 2ndBeer Festival and yet again we had another fantastic selection of cask ales which had our customers licking their lips and coming back for more. Best beer as voted by you was Blue Monkey – BG Sips.

However, the main purpose of this note is to thank people who contributed in different ways to making the event such a success.

Beer & Bar
Pete Dawn – you are a star, as ever the beer was perfect and your efforts driving this event forwards and then delivering it successfully were magnificent, a very big thanks to you for all that you did - brilliant.

Magpie Brewery – Thank you for your help & support, it is much appreciated.

Behind the scenes doing a million jobs which go un-noticed
Lyndon & Cate Hayes who helped drive this event, supporting Pete as well as raising barrel sponsorship and doing the support posters, marketing and event planning, as well as many stints behind the bar! A huge thanks to you both.

Volunteers working the Bar, we thank you sincerely for your help, it means so much to have your support.
