Dear Fellow Ale (or Cider) drinker
Although I normally just do the one monthly mail out, I have been asked to send out some news about an event which has an exclusive element for CAMRA members.
As you will know The Pelican is our CAMRA in Gloucester Pub of the Year. Mike Hall, Landlord of The Pelican, is holding a winter ales festival, and wants to offer CAMRA members an exclusive offer for the Thursday night. The details provided by Mike are as follows:-
“The Pelican inn, Gloucester will be showcasing winter ales from 13-15th February. Fifteen different beers will be available from 8pm Thursday 13th.
We are offering CAMRA members the opportunity to be the first to taste and judge all fifteen beers with our £10 tasting card which includes a free cellar tour and demonstration exclusively on the Thursday evening. We will have seven beers on hand pump, four racked and cooled behind the bar on a built for purpose stillage and four more in the cellar for tasting during the cellar tour.
For your £10 you will get;
- Tasting notes and scorecard
- A cellar tour and practical demonstration
- A taster of all fifteen beers (up to quarter of a pint of each)
- A pint of your chosen favourite beer
Cellar tours start at 8.30pm and are only available on Thursday 13th. Groups of 6-8 will be randomly dragged into the cellar for a demonstration and question and answer session.”
As we suspect this will be a popular evening, I have offered Mike, to co-ordinate bookings as far as possible, as it will also be possible just to pop into the pub.
