There's another beer festival at Chambers over the bank holiday weekend, ace! The last one in May was a roaring success, don't miss out. Plenty of cider on tap too, get your drinking trousers ready... live bands on each night including Sick Note Blues on the Friday. But I think we'll still go anyway.
The brews lined up so far are Wight Spirit, Salopian Lemon Dream, Black Zac, Cherry Bomb, Radgie Gadgie, Chancellor's Revenge, Dragonhead Stout, Skrimshander, Goachers Best Dark Ale, Gadd's No. 7, Village Bitter, and 49er. The four ciders are Snake Catcher, Cheddar Valley, Old Rosie and the death by apples Biddenden's Dry at 8.0%.
This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
