Lewes FC hosts beer night
5:30pm Tuesday 16th February 2010 in Community
Having survived the wrath of the HMRC – as, seemingly, some other South coast teams may not - Lewes FC is set to host its first Beer Night on February 26 at the Dripping Pan (which is actually far more pleasant than its name suggests, complete with beautiful views of Mount Caburn). Ales, lagers and ciders will all be on offer, along with a commemorative glass - with monies going to the club and Southover Bonfire Society (whose members will be ‘manning’ the bar).
The club is organising the Beer Festival in the year that the Rooks celebrate their 125th anniversary. The range of beers booked is impressive with Miles Jenner – head brewer at Lewes stalwart Harveys - hoping to provide a special Stout and Porter mix using an old Southdown brewery recipe and Dark Star sending their special Festival Porter. Father Godfrey is offering the Rector’s Revenge and Light Relief. There are beers from micros at the extremes of the county, from each Rother Valley, plus some out-of-county brews – some of which are football related.
Many of the Lewes FC team are just only legally allowed to drink alcohol but hopefully they, and Steve Ibbitson (manager and Lewes Personality of the Year), will turn up for a festive evening that may mark a celebration of better things to come for the club.
The event will, hopefully, prove to be one that celebrates all things Sussex, yet also be accessible to those from beyond.
Come on you Rooks!
