BROWN COW BREWERY WEEKEND
On the weekend of 21st/22nd March ten members and friends of Richmond & Hounslow travelled up to a beautifully sunny Yorkshire to present a certificate to Sue Simpson and her husband Keith of the Brown Cow Brewery in Barlow near Selby for their Captain Oates Dark Oat Mild which was voted Beer of the Festival by the customers at the Tenth Twickenham Beer & Cider Festival last October. A splendid time was had by all from the time we were collected from outside Selby station until we were returned thereafter a 'tour' of the brewery and visits laid on to two local pubs by Sue and Keith.
It was particularly pleasing that the accolade was won by a beer from such a small brewery (in a converted garage) such a long way from the area but that it was a mild ale that did it.
Our photos show Branch Treasurer Andy Pirson presenting the certificate to brewster Sue while her assistant Keith looks on and Sue standing beside the unusual and labour-saving tilting mash tun.
