First Elysian Beer Festival
The First Elysian Beer Festival, held at Larkfields School on 14 and 15 March this year,
proved to be a resounding success. If you were there,
you'll know how much fun it was; if you weren't, then shame on you!
Three reorders were required to keep the punters in beer, so thanks
go to Nethergate and Milton breweries for their admirable assistance in
And congratulations to Phil Wignall and his staff for the success of
the festival. The editor is keenly looking forward to the next one.
Champion beers are:
- 1st Cerebus (Fox)
- 2nd As You Like It (Mighty Oak)
- 3rd Heacham Gold (Fox)
So this is goodbye . . .
By the time you read this, the Ely Sub-branch will have flown the
nest and grown into a fully-fledged branch of its own. We in Cambridge
wish them well in their independence (sniff).
Pubs in the Ely area will continue to receive ALE until they start publishing their own
magazine, and we hope to continue to pool our resources in the future. But for
now: farewell, and good luck.
