    Terrace for dining if it’s not chucking it

    By popular demand summer 2018 we will be having another Brewery Bash so reserve your places early.

    Date is confimed as the 11th August 2018.

    1642again, Going Postal

    Cellar if it is chucking down, or you don’t like being too far from the bar

    I will probably turn up Friday evening for a quiet night, tour the brewery Saturday afternoon, party Saturday night and go to a BBQ at The Gate Hangs High Sunday afternoon before heading home Monday. If anyone wants to make weekend of it there will be plenty of people around judging by last time.

    I am genuinely gutted to let you know that I will no longer be able to attend this year. Those of you who read what little I post of my life in the real world might recall that my son has joined the RAF. He now has his leave dates and he and I will be doing the promised father/son trip to the West Coast at a time which clashes with this event.

    I would love to actually meet some of “us” (scary though that thought is) but it’s family first.

    Roll on 2019.

    I’ll be arriving Friday leaving Monday. From N Pennines. Can pick up if not out of the way.

    Found some cool places on Airbnb near Hook Norton. One’s a 2-bed cabin. if 2-4 share costs it’s cheap.

    https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/19097648?check_in=2018-08-10&check_out=2018-08-13

    If it’s just me, I think I’ll go for a yurt on a farm and pray it’s not raining.

    Have a look at what’s available, but I will be bringing the famous Monty again so need pets allowed. Also bear in mind that August can be cold at night, so sharing a bnb might be not such a bad idea as opposed to camping at the Gate.
