Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove invited the Beer Consultancy to manage their first ever Fest-Of-Ale on Saturday 16th November 2019. Held in the historic 14th Century Guesten Hall, retrieved from Worcester Cathedral, the festival offered 10 real ales, a draught cider and a perry, along with bottled beers, hot pork rolls and cheese and beer bread. The bread was made by on-site miller Michael Skoda with yeast from Woodcote Manor Brewery and flour milled at the historic onsite windmill.
Programmes & Marketing Manager Sarah Bowyer, takes up the story.
“We worked with Brett from the Beer Consultancy on our inaugural Fest-of-Ale here at Avoncroft Museum. He advised us on a fine selection of ales, cider and perry, appropriate quantities for the expected number of visitors, used his excellent connections and liaised with brewers and CAMRA to supply the right products and glasses for our event. He advised on all of the finer details of organising a beer festival that you just wouldn’t think of yourself. Brett is extremely well connected and has a wealth of knowledge in his field, as well as being a thoroughly decent chap! We will definitely work with him again for Fest-Of-Ale 2020 and would highly recommend him for all of your beer related needs!”
