Firstly many, many thanks to all who helped make our first beer festival such a success, not least all those who volunteered their time so generously over the two days, it's greatly appreciated. Thanks too to all who came along and helped make such a great atmosphere. Pencil 21/22 November 2014 in your diaries.
Thanks to all who voted for the beer of the festival. I think it's safe to say that there wasn't a bad beer amongst the 32 official beers, nor the three that we put on in The Snug when the Marble beers went.
So here are the winners as voted for by the festival goers:
Joint first-Kirkby Lonsdale Imperial Dragon and Ironbridge Oak Aged Whiskey Stout
Second-Ulverston Lonesome Pine
Third-Mordue Northumbrian Blonde
First beer to run out in The Snug-Marble Lagonda IPA
First beer to run out in the Furness Hall-Bowness Bay Swan Blonde
Thank you to all the wonderful brewers.
