When sampling these fine ales remember many of them will have been brewed with Hops from Nelson New Zealand, I was surprised when I got the number of Hop growers here and its currently expanding. On touring Fuller at Chiswick they had NZ hops in their hop store so I like the link between where I lived and where I live.

On the 24th March I'll be attending Marchfest here in NZ which costs NZ$35 for an early bird ticket and runs from midday till 2130 with music from 1230 till the end the link is for the web site and a good comparison of what happens in Ware, hopefully in March we'll still have some good warmth from the sun.

Beers bubbling away nicely and the list should be on our facebook page, one of which is Church End's Gravediggers Ale which was very popular at our first couple of fests.
I think Friday, as per usual, is a sell out but there are still some available for Saturday night - cheers!
