(Previous Slip/Swan festival glasses welcome)

Nearly June already and no events yet this year at the Slip?
Well, as many of you will have noticed, this is because we have been
busy making some changes this spring, with a small but highly effective
extension to the back bar room. We are keen to see how this will
improve our events and this weekend will be the first big test.
We really hope everyone likes what we have done, please feel free
to give us your feedback, and to ask about our future plans!

Three really great breweries will be battling it out this weekend
in our first three day Battle of the Breweries. There will be
full details of each brewery and beer in the festival notes as
usual, but for now feast your eyes on this selection, and rest
assured that we have carefully lined up a diverse and delicious
range for your enjoyment.

(Mostly we have rounds where similar beer styles will battle
it out, except for the bottom row which is a deliberately
eclectic "wild card" round. The rules are simple: the first in each
round to sell out a whole firkin wins - or if we don't reach that
point then we measure what's left and it is the one that has
sold the most. Have fun!)
