Brigstock Beer Festival

Someone on the Brigstock Beer Festival organising committee must have struck a bargain with the devil himself to have bagged such fine weather for this years event. Late Summer sun helped to create a great atmosphere at this years festival, but the rest of the attractions were solely the result of the organisers hard work. A well deserved success.

We've been to this excellent local event before, but this was our first time supplying cider to the festival. Alongside a barrel of Cromwell Cider from Huntingdon, the Rockingham Forest and Sulgrave Orchard ciders had all sold out by around 8pm in the evening. This has been the theme of the year at virtually all the events we have supplied cider to, and the popularity of real ciders and perrys like ours shows no sign of fading.

We really enjoyed the entertainment, even though the Morris Men had to cancel due to illness. The surprise highlight was the Ukelele duo, who entertained with unusual arrangements of popular songs, played with some skill on their diminutive instruments.

We hope to be back at Brigstock next year, with perhaps a little more cider in reserve. These Brigstock folk seem to like their cider!
