Festival celebrates last of the summer

MORE than 200 people attended a new beer festival at the Horns pub in Crazies Hill

MORE than 200 people attended a new beer festival at the Horns pub in Crazies Hill.

Hornfest was held at the Brakspear pub on Sunday and Monday in aid of the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed.

There were 12 beers on offer to customers, who paid £5 for a special pint or half-pint glass with the name of the pub and an image of a stag printed on the side.

They could try each of the beers, some of which were sponsored by villagers or local companies including accountants Harper Broom and lettings agency Emerson.

There was also a selection of ciders and wines as well as a champagne and gin bar and a barbecue. Guests took part in games including twister and skittles while rock band A Bag Full of Hats performed.


Sandra Purdy, who runs the pub with her husband Adam, said: “It went really well. It was our first time doing something like this so we have things to learn from it but we had a really good response.

“The good weather made a big difference, especially on Monday afternoon.

“People were saying it was a great idea so we are hoping to make it an annual event on the bank holiday weekend.

“We might even do the whole weekend next year.”
