Brewery Open Day - Saturday 7th September
We'll be opening our doors on September 7th for our annual Open Day / Music Festival. Anyone who's been before will know what a fabulous day it is, we've even heard rumour that Glastonbury are sending some scouts to get tips for their own shindig.
We've got three fabulous bands playing. First off are The Redbourn Jazz Band, playing the very best in Trad Jazz. These gents are not to be missed. Next up, re-booked immediately after their blistering set at our festival last year, are The Blue Fingers. Playing blues origianls and covers, these guys are the real deal. Their new(ish) EP 'The Bar' is a real belter and is available to download or on CD on the day. Finally, in a change to previously advertised, we've rock and pop classics from the magnificent Lettuce Heads. With a pedigree that includes working with the likes of Tom Jones, Gary Numan and Lemar, these guys are going to seriously rock the farm.
As per last year we've got food from our chums at Dylans The Plough (including Veggie options) and chocolatey treats from the wonderful Helen from The Choc Spot. We'll of course have our award winning beers on draught plus wines, prosecco and soft drinks. I've been asked to point out that there will be Gin available too.
There will be brewery tours bookable on the day - but get you name on the list when you arrive as these always fill up quickly.
Our ever accommodating landlord is allowing vehicles to park overnight at the farm. It goes without saying that we ask everyone to travel home responsibly.
The fun starts at 2pm and will finish around 11pm. Look forward to seeing you there.
PS - always keen to listen to feedback - we've upgraded the loos this year. Similar to those used at The Queens Garden Party ours now feature super premium 'tissue' and they've got lighting for those visiting after dark!
Porter - Back from summer break
Our lovely award winning Porter is back! The current holder of the title 'Best Beer in Hertfordshire' (CAMRA St Albans Beer Festival 2018) has been maturing in cask for ages, and is now being released into the wild. Though it's the best beer in Hertfordshire, we're not precious and it's actually available outside of Hertfordshire too. More details:
Porter 5.2% abv
Limited edition seasonale ale. Dark, strong and with a large amount of Chocolate malt to give the beer its' distinctive smoky / coffee tones - this is a beer to be savoured.
The porter will of course be available at our Open Day (see above)
