A LANDLORD is taking unusual steps to ensure his pub’s up-and-coming beer festival is the best yet.
Mitch Adams, owner of the Thatcher’s Arms in Mount Bures, is hoping to make real ale fans rejoice during the pub’s beer festival from May 3 to 7.
The 32-year-old has taken it upon himself to visit five different breweries and create five new beers for the event.
Yesterday, Mitch was at Mauldons Brewery in Sudbury to put the finishing touches to the last of his beers.
“I thought it would be a bit of a giggle to create something different and have a theme to the beers,” he said.
“It has been difficult getting up early to do the brewing, but the festival will now have some one-off and seasonal beers for people to enjoy.”
Among the beers on offer at the pub will be a special jubilee beer. Beer glasses will be sold in aid of the Prostate Cancer Charity and Mitch said he was hopeful of beating last year’s total when £800 was raised for Help for Heroes.
