The Brewers Cooperative had two great days at the Folk Forest Festival in Endcliffe Park in July, serving an average of 185 pints an hour over the two days! It just shows what an appetite for local ales there is.
Following a successful charity quiz night at the Harlequin in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Exit 33 have released a beer donating money from the profits to the charity. After suffering a sclerotic attack Pete Roberts of Exit 33 decided to help raise much needed funds. Pete said: “Attacks come without warning and can be very debilitating and frightening leaving the sufferer with long term issues. The MS Society does great work and it’s an honour to support this”.
Surprise Attack, a 4.8% ABV pale ale, was brewed with the help of raffle prize winners from the Harlequin charity quiz night. Our next charity night will take place on 20 September.
Once again, the Harlequin has been nominated for the national cider awards by the Morning Advertiser. We await the result when we attend the award ceremony on 6 September. Fingers crossed!
