Summertime

So what a summer we have been having –
A heatwave; England putting forward a decent performance in the sportsball; Silverware for our darts team; a brand new font for the cider, a new lager on the T-Bar & a new West Berks hand-pull.

We have had Georgian food, BBQs, Live Music, an Art Installation, book club and some fabulous themed drinks evenings.

But obviously it is not over yet! [Even if the weather breaks] Plus the Autumn is going to Rock.
July 22nd we have a Bourbon-Themed pub quiz organised by local Evan Williams rep and well-known cocktail slinger Josh Homerston
July 29th is Live Music from Leon C with support from Dan O’Farrell
August 11th is our Summer Party with some awesome music from Undying Heads plus unusual and gorgeous drinks.

There is probably more but I’ve forgotten already, but September we definitely have a super gig lined up from Davey Dodds (8th) plus save the dates for our Autumn Beer Festival (20th-23rd).

See you soon

A Fab Feb

There is a chance I got a little enthusiastic about how mch I could fit into the shortest month of the year….
So I hope you are up for a Meet the Brewer evening*, 2 CAMRA socials, 3 gigs** and a whiskey tasting***.

* The super excellent Tap Social are bringing some New beers

** BIGG are back with their anti-valentines mix and then bringing friends Zephyr & Xander and the Keys later in the month; plus we have an Introducing set with Fat Rick and Gerald with Support

*** East London Liquor tasting are back to give us some previews of Sonoma county whiskey – let us know which we should put on the bar

Live Music & Professional Drinkers

In case you’ve missed it elsewhere this is a quick reminder to check out our events calendar to keep up to date with upcoming music  – we’ve got some superb American blues (May 24th) and contemporary folk/pop/rock (June 24th) confirmed and we are still taking more bookings.

I would also like to take a moment to mention our Professional Drinkers Club – we have meetings on the last Sunday of the month to try some drinks and learn about some aspect of drinking, drink production or drink culture.
This month we have the very knowledgeable Daryl Unwin on ‘7 Deadly Gins’ & next month JD is going talk about his life as a brewer.
