Last week saw Newcastle host Tyneside and Northumberland CAMRA’s annual beer festival. As every year we were honoured to brew a beer for this year’s ‘Battle of the Beers’ competition, this year entering the flavoured stout category. WE ONLY WENT A SECURED A RUNNERS UP SPOT! Yes, you read that correctly. ‘Exam Room Tears’, a maple and pecan stout went on to secure the runners up spot in a category competing against some of our favourite local breweries. We still haven’t stopped smiling about this and want to give our biggest thanks to Tyneside & Northumberland CAMRA for organising such a great festival. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. A big well done must go out to Firebrick, who won the category with their sugar spun stout; it was a worthy winner! If you fancy having a cask of Exam Room Tears, drop Harry and Lucy a message at firstname.lastname@example.org – there isn’t much left so get some ASAP!
Other than not smiling since Wednesday, it has been a fairly quiet week for the team. We do have one of the most exciting events of the year coming up though – the AGM! This year the AGM will be held in L101 of Merz Court at 4-5pm on Friday the 3rd of May. For more information about the positions you lovely people can stand for, check out the event here. To celebrate the new team coming into office / trying to ease the pain of the old team leaving, following the AGM we will be having a Brewery Bash. We’ve even got Fire and Dough providing pizza for the event. Keep your eyes peeled for a Facebook event that’ll be made sometime soon.
That’s all for this week!
