This year’s (end of) Winter Beer Festival will takes place on the week end of 5th March.
Posters are up in the club showing the significant details, i.e. opening times, which are; Friday 4th 6:30 – 11:00, Saturday 5th 12:30 – 11:00 and Sunday 6th 12:00 – 18:00.
As per last year this will be a smaller scale compared to the summer beer festival with beers from local breweries and a few selected guests.
This is the same week end as Eccles 1st v Penrith (who have been encouraged to bring down a large coach load). We are also expecting a visit from a large number of Harlequin Supporters following their game v Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell stadium. The fame of the Eccles RFC beer festivals travels far and wide.
For those who remember last year’s winter festival we had a visit from a group of Saracens Supporters. For which they did a fantastic write up. They have today contacted me and asked when this year’s event would take place. Alas they will be playing Sale Sharks a week earlier on 27th Feb, but they still intend to visit the club to watch the England v Ireland game on that day.
