The corner is a little tight at the moment πŸ˜‰

A big thank you…

To all those attended last nights fund raiser for MacMilian Cancer Support, our first such tasting evening went very well indeed, I’m pretty sure everyone was fed and watered πŸ˜‰

For those that couldn’t make it this time, there will be other such events, oh.. this was the small ploughman’s im afraid you missed out on πŸ˜₯


Good news though….mine was lovely πŸ˜‚

Congratulations to John W for winning the raffle prize, he was in the building too which was good, although its still here John and there is a Tempest present :o……

We all managed to raise Β£207.00……..massive thank you to everyone……

See you soon…..

Breaking news!!!!


Enough said πŸ˜‰ many thanks and see you soon….

It’s now in full swing….

If you can’t get over to Munich for the 189th Oktoberfest pay us a call, we’ve a good selection of Germany’s finest….including these 2 specials…..coincidentally they just happen to be amongst my favourite brewers from that part of the world. …..;)


Weird that…….enjoy. …

That’s it folks….

All the beer is here in Bear town for our tasting on Thursday…..

Spent most of Monday off campus driving and collecting….

Got back and racked late afternoon, luckily beat most of the traffic.

I got slightly lost on one occasion,  sat navigation is handy but not always fool proof!!!!!

At one point it felt like a scene from Ron Howard’s Rush…..well with white van’s et al πŸ˜‰

Our hardy LDV gained a few more miles but behaved well….

Can’t give too much away…..ive already said far too much……and cant post any photos. ….just yet…
