The brewers, Andrew and Tim, will be joining us at 7-00pm to tell us a little about their beers and the brewery. We will be keeping the event nice and informal so that there will be plenty of time to chat with the lads and ask any questions about the brewery or brewing in general. Hope you can join us.
