Cadgwith pub celebrates all things beer: PICTURES
4:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
A celebration of all things beer was held in Cadgwith – with some unusual treats for drinkers. It was hosted by the Cadgwith Cove Inn landlords Garry and Helen Holmes, who hosted their first three-day beer and cider festival.
The event was sponsored by Skinners Brewery and offered a varied selection of 16 ales and ciders on sale to enthusiastic punters all over the weekend.
Visitors to the inn were invited to “meet the brewer” with representatives from Skinners, Otter, St Austell and Chough Breweries who were there throughout the festival.
Those that knew their ale, as well as those who were just learning, were given the opportunity to sample the “best of three”, sampling three varieties each time. A game of “guess the ale” was also held, hosted by St Austell Brewery – which proved to be an ale that had been brewed 32 years ago, exclusively for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
Running alongside the weekend was a full weekend of entertainment, with the Cadgwith Singers performing on the Friday night, while Saturday and Sunday saw live music from local musicians Jordan Jane and Harry Rowland.
Garry and Helen have thanked everyone who supported the festival, which they described as “a resounding success.”
The popularity of the festival was such that it will now become an annual event in celebration of local ales and ciders.
