Elgood’s annual beer festival ended at 10.30 pm on Saturday 21st September.
Tired but happy staff and customers all agreed that this had been the best ever! Visited by approximately 1000 people over the three days, the festival was blessed by sunny weather and the friendliest atmosphere.
Entertainment was from Toadfish Bone, The Cherry Reds, The Rusty Relics and Bewildered and helped the party go with a swing. Caricaturist John Elson did a roaring trade in quick sketches of visitors and staff during Saturday afternoon and evening. All proceeds from this not-for-profit event will be distributed to local charities.
Before the festival, the SIBA Regional Independent Beer Awards took place at the brewery and Elgood’s were delighted to win several awards.
