Enville Ales who partnered with the Friends of Lightwoods Park for last year’s beer festival on Mayday will be back in the park this year working in conjunction with Black Country Ales, the owners of the new bar in Bearwood.
Friends Group Chair, Richard Marshall, said, “As soon as we decided to go with the beer festival again this year we had no hesitation in getting back in touch with Enville Ales. They were heroic last year, supplying not only their own special beer, but also providing a range of cask ales from other local breweries.
Jerry Hedges, director of Enville Breweries told the Bearwood Blog, “We are delighted to be back this year, after the terrific success we enjoyed working with Richard and the Friends Group last year. Both ourselves and Black Country will be brewing an ale especially for the festival after the popularity of last year’s Lightwoods Ale. We are also bringing along a couple of ciders, and some red and white wine too.”
This year, although the ‘bar area’ will be adults only (and a challenge 25 policy applied) there will also be a family area where people can take their drink through to so that people who want to drink and sit with the children will still be able to do so.
Also on site again this year will be the Enville Beer Bus where volunteers will be able to take a break during the day.
Did we mention…we are still looking for volunteers?
