Isle of Man Beer and Cider Festival 2015

Recommended Posts

Albert - hang your head in shame. We will have to handcuff you to the cider bar until you learn. It is of course the place for ladies to be.....

Hmmm...maybe CAMRA should consider the cider bit being an affiliate organisation instead...Campaign for Real Apples and Pears. CRAP. :)

 

Though I do like the idea of being handcuffed to the ladies!

Ale's for those limp old men who can't handle their cider, or their wine or woo woo's for that matter.

Ooer looks like the Ben may be cancelled Tuesday and Wednesday and all the beer, cider, glasses and equipment are due on the boat on 1st April. Nervous times for us.

 

Isle of Man Beerless and Ciderless Festival anyone?

 

Joking apart it should be ok - we've learnt by experience to build in a bit of extra shipping time to allow for cancellations.

 

Stilling chewing my fingernails down nicely though.

Stillages put up tonight. All new cider bar and stillage.

Beer stillage holds 105 casks with 30 more under the bar.

 

With 60 bottles of fruit wine and mead you ain't got a chance of drinking us dry!

 

Roll on Thursday.

Best of luck. Can't make this one but was there for one at the Masonic building and it was brilliant

What's the layout going to be like?

 

I heard that all the beer will be in the promenade suite and main seating/music area being the royal hall, is this correct?

 

I'm fond of thirds and halves to get maximum variety when staying relatively vertical but not sure how this goes hand in hand with a fair amount of traipsing?

 

Thanks
