May bank holiday will be here before we know it and that means two things for the Glengower….our 5th local Beer Festival and the annual Charity Raft Race.
OUR LOCAL BEER FESTIVAL, 26th – 29th MAY 2017
We are excited to once again be organising the Glengower local Beer Festival. This will be our 5th year that the festival has been running and is now a firm regular event in the local beer lovers calendar.
The beer festival will run over the May bank holiday weekend from Friday 26th May through to Monday 29th May. The format will be the same as the last four years with up to 16 beers on at any one point and a number of different ciders on as well. It is always great to get so many local Welsh ales at the pub for people to try.
A number of great hits from last year were: “Danish Dynamite” by Stonehenge Brewery in Salisbury and also “Mountain Moose” from Purple Moose Brewery in Porthmadog with the barrels dissapearing in a short space of time!
The support last year from locals and students was unbelievable and really showed the strength of real ale in the area. Following last year’s awards for “West Wales Pub of the year 2016” and “Bae Ceredigion Pub of the Year 2016” then we can only hope that this will further cement the reputation of our beers and encourage new faces as well as old to come to this year’s beer festival.
CHARITY RAFT RACE – Sunday 28th May 2017
Our annual charity raft race will be taking place on Sunday 28th May at 2pm. It is always a fantastic day with so much support and its always fantastic to see so many people getting involved. It’s just a bit of fun so why not get together with some friends from work, university, the pub and enter yourselves as a team in this year’s raft race.
The rules are pretty simple…. The raft has to be made by hand using whatever materials you can get your hands on, no engines, sails, pumps or propellers are allowed. All you can use is your own brute strength and oars. The race starts on the beach directly outside The Glengower.
There is no minimum or maximum number of people you can have in your team, it is just £10 per team to enter. All proceeds go to the RNLI who support this great event.
CASH prizes to be won for the winning teams and a bonus prize for the best fancy dress!
If you would like to enter the Glengower Raft Race 2017 on Sunday 28th of May then simply complete the above entry form and drop it into the pub along with your team entry fee of £10 by Wednesday 24th May.
If you are not thinking that you yourself are a raft racer then please come along and support those who are! Its a great day so come and be part of it.
