The pubs will still be getting ready for us, but we’re already serving!
In THIS month’s social, before we enjoy a chat over a pint or two wth friends in our virtual bar – well, actually, your homes…
We’ll be joined by our #camrahitchinvirtualfestival partners Kelchner Brewery
They’ll lead us through a REAL tasting of their beers, brewed just over the Beds border in Ampthill.
The tasting beers, which we you hope you ordered, will be (in bottles):-
Lekker (summer style bitter) 3.9%
Masquerade (red ale) 4.3%
but you could also stock up with polypins of 5, 10 or 20 litres
James Blonde 3.9%
Hat-trick 4.1% triple hopped
Or see Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Kelchner-Brewery-2074537279498690/
If you didn’t order, please join to hear the beers and brewery described. THEN order!
We’ll continue with a friendly social in our virtual pub = your home!
What better way to spend a summer Wednesday evening?
AND, if that’s not enough, running already from 5 PM on July 1st, there is a PRIZE QUIZ!
Felix, one of the co-owners of Small Beer Brew Co. conducted a live tasting at the Red (On)Lion virtual pub from CAMRA – the Campaign for Real Ale (https://theredonlion.co.uk/login) on Tuesday 23rd June. CAMRA North Hertfordshire was there and you can see some of it on IGTV https://www.instagram.com/tv/CBycTppJq04/
Just 3 trivia question answers about the Original Small Beer co. could win you a gift pack of their beers, donated to us!
The quiz will run for 24 hours and we don’t mind HOW you get the answers right – Google them, go on their website https://theoriginalsmallbeer.com, phone a friend, purely guess or even ask the hosts (us) on Wednesday evening. Beware, though, followers of #whowantstobeamillionaire will know the host Jeremy Clarkson is often wrong.
In checking them out you will LEARN AND DISCOVER (https://camra.org.uk/learn-discover/) about the concept of small beer and the brewery itself.
Everyone getting all three right will go into a ‘hat’ and the winner will get the pack. Results by 4th July – ooh, that’s an important date!
If you think you don’t like lower alcohol beers, we think this will change your mind. The Dark Lager at 1% ABV is a revelation!
The questions are on Instagram and Facebook stories NOW!
