Hundreds of visitors enjoyed a bright, sunny day in the Elgood’s Brewery Gardens on Sunday 2nd September. The Craft & Plant Show was a great success, as of course were our award winnings ales. We are already looking forward to next year! Beautiful weather greeted visitors at the 2018 Summer Plant & Craft show
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.

We are delighted to report a very successful Beer Festival this year. More than 900 people attended over the three days of the festival. Over 150 beers were available, offering everything from refreshing low-alcohol ales to stunning high ABV porters and stouts.
Entertainment was provided by old favourites Dr Busker and Bewildered as well as up and coming local band Animal Bar. Local folk band The Rusty Relics played for the Saturday afternoon session and were very well received.
The festival, which is in its 7th year, is organised on a not-for-profit basis, using the beers entered for the SIBA East annual beer competition. All money raised is donated to local charities. This year £2,000 will be shared between Ravenswood Pet Rescue, Rare Brain Tumour Research, Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and the Ferry Project.
Next year’s festival has already been booked for Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd September 2018.
