Please let Tony Jackson (015394 47845/07497 005827) firstname.lastname@example.org know if you wish to attend, so we know the numbers for the catering.
Kendal has a new brewery tap, namely the Factory Tap on Aynam Road. This is the tap for the Bowness Bay brewery who have recently moved into the Factory site (the old Greenacres Carpet factory), with a guest ale also expected to be available.
We now have copies of the latest version of the Breweries of Cumbria Poster available. More details here.
The 2015 Westmorland Beer Festival was held between 30th September to 3rd October 2015, we hope you enjoyed it you came.
