Booze? Here in Twickenham? Yes, dear readers we can now confirm that that does indeed seem to be the case. In fact, such is the town’s commitment to the cause and such is this site’s commitment to the town, that we’re bringing you news of three booze related events coming up. All take place on the same day so you can take your pick.
First up, we salute Twickenham Fine Ales, London’s oldest micro-brewery. The company celebrates ten years of brewing with a 10th Anniversary Party on Saturday 13th September at its Mereway Road brewery. It was founded in 2004 by Steve Brown and has gone from strength to strength, picking up fans and plaudits and moving to larger premises along the way. Sundancer, Grandstand, Naked Ladies; if you haven’t tried them you’re missing out. Twickenham Fine Ales can now be found not just in pubs in the local area and more widely across London, but you can also now buy it in bottles and direct from the brewery. Saturday’s anniversary party will see up to 10 Twickenham ales on offer, hot food, live music and the chance for a good old nose around the brewery. We say, Happy Anniversary guys. Tickets cost £10 and include 3 pints.
Secondly, and also on Saturday 13th, we draw your attention to the Wine and Food Festival which is being hosted by Last Try Wines at the Cabbage Patch pub on London Road. It runs from 1.00pm to 6.30pm and tickets cost £7 each (with offers on group purchases and for loyalty card holders). What to expect? Wine, wine tasting, learning about wine from suppliers, sampling interesting foods, wine, sampling interesting beers, more food. More wine.
And, as mentioned in the comments below, The Sussex Arms is hosting a Cider-Fest on Saturday. It runs from 1.00pm to 9.00pm with live music from 3.00pm. There will be a hog roast and, of course, a load of different ciders.
So there you have it, three dynamic local businesses putting on something a little bit different to bring better booze to the good burghers of Twickenham. Sounds alright, doesn’t it?
