It’s that time of year guys, SunFest is upon us! The Rising Sun at Nether Green (the 83A and 120 bus stops right outside the pub!) is the place to be from 9th – 12th July for over 100 beers and ciders plus top quality entertainment and of course the annual Dog Show on the Sunday afternoon. Look out for a beer list to be released shortly before the festival via our website, Facebook and Twitter.
Our charity partner this year for SunFest is The James Brownhill Memorial Fund (JBMF). The fund has been set up by James’ family following his death on the Frendo Spur in the French Alps, above Chamonix, July 1st 2011. James was an avid climber and mountaineer, he constantly strove to improve his skills and abilities, helping him progress into many areas and disciplines of the climbing world. The fund awards volunteers with bursaries to undertake courses to consolidate and develop safe climbing practice for teaching new and inexperienced climbers in individual and group situations. James will be greatly missed, but through the fund we hope to preserve a passion and attitude to safe climbing that James constantly upheld. James was a local lad, whose favourite beer was Moonshine, so we are honoured to be supporting a local charity with strong links to both the pub and the community. www.jbmf.co.uk
Like every year, we brew a special beer for SunFest, and this year it will be ‘Summit’. A pale 4.1% hoppy beer brewed with American hops (including a good dose of Summit). We will be donating 10p for every pint of ‘Summit’ brewed to JBMF.
All the other beers to come out of Abbeydale HQ this month are all brand spankingly new, so much so, as we go to print the recipes are still being formulated by our (mad) brewers!!! Expect another beer in our Signature series and the latest beer in our Albion British hops series. Exciting times ahead!
See you at SunFest!
