The more eagle-eyed among you may have noticed this part of the site has been a little quiet in the past few weeks and months. Well that’s because we’ve been rather busy with a big move into a brand-spanking new 30bbl brewery (One Mile End have set up shop in our former unit).
But we are now back with a few new members of staff and a lot of events to keep us busy this summer, as well as some exciting developments (of which more will be revealed soon). The first event we have on the menu is the Tottenham Ploughmans Riverfest this Sunday 27th May at the Lordship Recreation Ground.
The Ploughman’s Riverfest was established in order to raise awareness of the River Lea that runs through Tottenham on its way to disgorging itself at Bow Creek, by the Thames. At the moment the Lea is in the bottom 7% of healthy rivers in England and the Riverfest aims to help the clean-up of the river and get it into the top 7%.
We will of course be providing refreshment to festival revellers with four of our beers, and our good friends at Wildes Cheese have knocked (or should that say churned) up a special “Ploughman’s” cheese made with our own Fellowship Porter! We were given a sneak tasting of the cheese earlier this week and it was amazing, you might even say it was un-brie-lievable…
As well as some amazing food and drinks producers being present at the festival there will also be live performances from some amazing musical acts such as the Hackney Colliery Band, who do a great brass-band cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers: “Under the Bridge”; as well as the Tottenham Community Choir in attendance.
We do hope that you can make it down this Sunday to show you’re support for a worthy cause, drink our beer, taste some fantastic food and enjoy some great entertainment.
