BFBi Annual Lunch

The BFBi is the Brewing, Food and Beverage industry organisation and on Friday 8th November it hosted its Midlands Section Annual Luncheon.  The annual luncheon provides an excellent opportunity for people from all sides of the industry to get together over a spot of beer tasting, dining and a guest speakers.  

This year’s guest speakers included Colin Maclachlan from the Channel 4 show SAS Who Dares Wins and the Channel 5 show - Secrets of the SAS and Jane Kershaw, the great great great granddaughter of Joseph Holt.  Holts was founded in 1849 by Joseph Holt and Jane is part of the sixth generation to work in the business. 

For the third year running the stunning Council House in Birmingham was chosen as the venue and as is traditional for the midland section Harry Mason Limited provided the beer engines.  For this event we used our well-known beer engine ‘The Aston’.  Our technical guys were at the council house nice and early and together they set up 6 beer engines each on their own mini bar.  The event started at midday and all six pumps were put through their paces pulling a variety of ales including the incredibly popular Timothy Taylor’s Landlord, Marstons’ Hobgoblin and Pedigree as well as beers from Wye Valley and Purity.

We also took the opportunity to debut our brand-new beer engine PINT365 Deluxe.  Davenports kindly donated a bag in box of their newest brew ‘Fallen’ a complex dry hopped red ale and together they generated a great deal of interest amongst the attendees. 

As ever the event was considered a great success by all and after its official finish at 5pm a smaller ‘afterparty’ followed at the very popular Purecraft Bar & Kitchen where beer sampling continued well into the night.
