Thatched House Festival – CAMRA Branch News
Poulton-le-Fylde’s Thatched House is to host its first “Winter Beer Festival” from November 28th to December 4th. At least 40 different ales will be on tap during the festival. For a complete list take a look at their website, www.thatchedhousepoulton.co.uk. Landlord, Vin Hamer, told me, “If this festival is successful, I have plans to organise a similar event in the Spring. Our summer Poulton Festival was very popular with the real ale guys, all the pubs taking part were busy so there is no reason why my winter event won’t work.” Vin expressed his thanks for the support of the local CAMRA branch.
“We are already planning our town beer festival for next summer, so far the only thing you can be certain of is that it will be bigger, with an even wider selection of beer”, Said Vinny. It is great to see such enthusiasm for cask beer from a local publican. Poulton, with all its pubs now selling cask beer, is fast becoming a popular venue for visitors seeking real ale.
