Music was provided by the Peter Rudeforth Jazz Band who played a wonderful selection of classic numbers with some stunning solos from the band members. In between sets from the Jazz Band, the audience was treated to music from a Ukulele Band whose line-up included our very own Dave Dyer.
Visitors enjoyed their picnics, which looked delicious; the beer, which was (of course) excellent; and the bands, who were superb
A fantastic range of prizes had been donated for a raffle in support of Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, which raised £500 in total for this worthy cause.
Dave Sheila were delighted with the turn out and they expressed their thanks to everyone at Elgood’s who helped with the organisation and to Nigel & Anne Elgood for hosting the event.
Wisbech brewers Elgood & Sons were very proud to receive a Silver Medal for the latest addition to their range of sour beers, Coolship Mango Sour. Judged by brewers and industry experts and organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) at their flagship BeerX event in Liverpool, the awards run across a huge range of beer style categories in cask, craft keg, bottle and can. Elgood’s Coolship Mango Sour was awarded Silver in the Speciality Light Beers category.
Elgood’s Head Brewer, Alan Pateman, who was a judge at the event, said, “We are very pleased indeed to receive yet another award for one of our Sour Beers. As one of the first UK breweries to develop a Belgian-style, naturally fermented beer, we have been delighted with the continued success of these products in winning prestigious awards. This is, of course, reflected in the popularity of the beers in the market place.”
Coolship Mango Sour takes its place alongside the rest of the Elgood’s range of award-winning ales and speciality beers.
In Whittlesea it was the custom on the Tuesday following Plough Monday (the 1st Monday after Twelfth Night) to dress one of the confraternity of the plough in straw and call him a ‘Straw Bear’.
The tradition was revived in the 1980’s and this years’ Straw Bear Festival promises to be a great occasion. To celebrate, Elgood’s has produced our own ‘Straw Beer’ a light, golden ale, well hopped with a full refreshing flavour.
