Events Diary: Beer & Cheese
Congratulations and sincere thanks to all who made our 6 Nations beer and cheese evening such a success. Plans are evolving for another online evening of fun with different themes but hopefully an equally successful event. It was well attended ad we had reached our limit for cheese and beer.
Richard Allen was our compere (and also did one of the entertainment rounds), Will Calvert proposed and introduced the beers, whilst Mike Unger (the CheeseMunger) had selected and introduced the cheeses.
Over a three(ish) hour period we went through six different beer and cheese combinations - one for each of the six nations countries. Okay there was a slight cheat with the French bier, but it was necessary. In between the tastings, we plaid a few games too to allow the beer and cheese to settle; also allow for the odd pitstop too.
As well as introducing the various beers and cheeses, discussing the virtues of each and pointing out some small inadequacies of the alternative, our experts also took questions from the floor.
Towards the end of the evening, one of the entertainment rounds was "heads and tails", an old rugby game that has very little thinking required but basically can get you off your bum. We don't actually know who won, that stays withion the tasting. Maybe you can spot yourself or someone you know.
It was one young lady's birthday on the night so all sang a wee song for her. Rene - the pub's oldest patron - was a spritely 99 years young. Happy birthday. Apologies for the bad singing.
Unfortunately we didn't get photos for everyone but hopefully you know you were there!
And by the way, did anyone mention the scores? Worth looking up and may explain the number of Scots related items seen in the photos.
