BALLARDS BEER WALK 2016
Sunday 4th December.
Beer Walk and new “Split” Barley Wine 8.5% a Great Success
Yesterday we held our annual charity Beer Walk and launched our new Old Bounder Barley Wine, “SPLIT”. At 8.5% it’s darkly rich with chocolatey and marmalade flavours and a hint of coffee in the aftertaste, and 18 gallons of it went down a storm!
Record numbers turned out on a perfect winter morning of frost and sunlight to enjoy a bacon sarnie breakfast provide by the Midhurst and Easebourne Scouts, washed down with ale and accompanied by the Prize Old Mummers from Portsmouth performing their classic play.
The fields and footpaths were only slightly muddy and the White Hart at Harting, the Three Horseshoes and the Elsted Inn at Elsted welcomed walkers with more beer, mulled wine and delicious food.
We raised some £400 (haven’t quite worked it out yet) to go towards a new roof for St Mary’s Church at Chithurst, and a good time was had by all.
Thanks to all who came, and we hope you’ll come again!
