POURING PINTS FOR OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
This summer, after an incredibly tough few years, we’ve thrown ourselves getting out and about by supporting as many local community events and festivals as possible.
Thank you to everyone who’s welcomed us so far – we’ve loved meeting so many new faces (and putting a fresh pint in their hands!)
Here a just a few of the places we’ve been hanging out at this summer:
In May, we headed to one of our favourite grassroots music venues – the Sound Lounge in Sutton. Having built a great reputation in Tooting (hailed in 2017 by Time Out as “good news for London’s live music scene…and hope for London’s music fans” the Sutton community hub operates a café, bar and plant-based kitchen during the day, and a music venue dedicated to Americana, blues, folk and roots performances at night. Owned by Hannah White and Kieron Marshall, we were delighted to provide beer for Hannah’s album debut.
Croydon Commitment Veteran’s Lunch
Later that month, we supplied beer (and raffle prizes) for a Queen’s Jubilee Veteran’s Lunch organised by Croydon Commitment. Held in Braithwaite Hall, it provided an opportunity for past and current members of the Armed Forces Community to reminisce.
Chiswick RFC rugby 7s final
In July, we headed to Chiswick to provide refreshment to players (and spectators) of the Chiswick RFC’s 7’s tournament. With an incredible 32 teams taking part, the bar team’s muscles were almost as big as the rugby players by the end of the afternoon!
South Norwood Festival
That same day, other members of the team were over in Croydon for the South Norwood Community Festival. This annual event is 100% volunteer run and is a brilliant day out for all the family. From dance and performance to medieval re-enactments and over 70 stalls, the beer tent run by The Portland Arms (one of our suppliers) was a popular spot for adults.
London Pride 7s
Towards the end of July, we were back on the field – this time at Mitcham & Carshalton Rugby Club – supporting the London Pride 7s run by The London Stags RFC (South London’s biggest LGBTQ+ rugby club). Another brilliant day out (with Rosie Zinfandel providing the perfect post-pitch entertainment).
If you’re holding an event and are looking for a Drinks supplier or sponsor, give us a call and let’s see what we can do.
