Here’s news on one event that is being planned as part of the Chatsworth Road Festival – Battle of the Borough Bitters – the four breweries in the borough: Brampton, Raw, Spire and Townes will have their bitter brew evaluated by an independent arbiter at the Brampton Manor Oktoberfest on Sunday 13 October.
Brampton Manor decided to stage their first Oktoberfest as their contribution to this year’s Chatsworth Road Festival. The two day event will take place from noon each day on Saturday and Sunday 12th and 13th October (free admission) with two distinct themes:
- Saturday – based on lager beers including several German brands
- Sunday – based on UK beers with the highlight at 2.30 pm when “The Battle of the Borough Bitters” takes place; judged by a wholly independent assessor. Visitors will have the chance to try all four beers and cast their vote – with a draw for those that make the same choice as the judge.
The event is sure to be popular so put it in your diary; whatever your beer tastes are this festival will cater for them plus there is local pride at stake as the four borough breweries battle it out for the title of “Best Bitter in the Borough!”
Stop Press: Complete impartiality is assured as we can now confirm that Andy Bennett, UK Business manager for Palm Brewery (Belgium) will be the adjudicator
Get the date in your diary – it’s sure to be a fun day !
