Dan has organised a coach trip to Sheffield on 6rd April, £16 a head as usual. He is trying to arrange a brewery tour for us. Tickets available from Dan at the Black Country Arms social.
Backyard will only open their Brewery Tap every quarter for the foreseeable future due to staffing problems. Their beers can be found in the Wheatsheaf, Walsall : ‘1898 Dark Mild’ 4.9%, ‘Silly Rucker’ 4.6%, along with Beowulf ‘Beorma’3.9%. A fuller selection is available at the Fountain, Walsall.
Beowulf is pretty busy as usual with orders up on this time last year. He won several awards at the CAMRA Regional awards in December; Silver for ‘Finns Hall Porter’, Gold for ‘Dark Raven’ and another Silver for ‘Dark Raven’ in the West Midlands Overall Champion category. This beer will be representing Beowulf at the GBBF/W in Norwich, but you don’t have to go all that way for Phil’s beers, just call him on 01543 454 067 to order your bottles and check he is there.
AJ’s have announced an open day on Saturday 9th March, 12-5pm but get there early because if it rains (and it usually does) there is only room for a few inside. Long Acre St. Walsall.
Dates for your Diary: Derby Beer Festival 20th -23rd February, Burton Beer Festival 28th -30th March. Sheffield trip 6th April.
