Cheers! Here’s to the Crusaders RUFC Beer Festival

It was great to be involved with such a great event over the weekend.  The Crusaders RUFC held their annual beer festival from 19th – 21st July at their club in Little Melton. It featured 30 ales and cider.

A few of the barrels had already run dry by the Sunday, suggesting that Friday and Saturday nights, which featured live music, had gone rather well.

Yesterday had more of a family focus. With a bouncy castle, jousting, an assault course and welly wanging, there was plenty to get involved in.  And that didn’t stop the flow of beer either.  Although at 5.2% ABV not everyone was brave enough to try a pint of Excelsior, the beer that Base Building Solutions had sponsored.  Jon, our Managing Director, and Paul, our Contracts Manager, got a little competitive on the coconut shy but ended up leaving it to the teenagers to show them how it was done. Fortunately, the raffle turned out to be kinder to them!

Thanks to the organisers for arranging another successful beer festival and for inviting us to be part of it for a second year.
