We are proud & lucky to be the FIRST PUB in Folkestone to stock the LEAS LIFT ALE! A 3.8% locally brewed pale ale with a benefit in every glass. For every pint drunk 10p goes towards the Lift trust so as you quaff this damned fine ale you can reassure yourself that you're providing a bit more longevity for your towns most iconic landmark. Well done you!! Official launch this Thurs but ale on sale from Weds.
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
