On Wednesday 17th May, 14 members of the Real Ale group met at the Bentinck Conservative Club in Hucknall. The event was organised by Terry Hill, ably helped by David Rose.
We had been allocated our own room at the front of the Club, which had put on a keg of Wainwrights real ale which went down very well.
David set up his screen and projector and showed us some interesting podcasts and short clips of Old Inns in Nottingham, causing some discussion as to the actual oldest, also a clip the Craft Beer Festival which was held on Sneinton Market, again prompting a lively discussion on ‘real ale’ and ‘craft ale’
Terry followed up with a beer-based quiz, which resulted in a tie for first place resulting in a tense tie breaker. Remarkably the wonder team of Greg, Angela, Keith & Melvyn won, resulting in a prize of a whole packet of crisps each – what a prize!
As always, a good time was had by all, many thanks to Terry and David, a reminder that Mark Thornley volunteered to organise our June outing.
