As some of you will be aware, I enjoy the odd pint of real ale and have been a member of the Campaign for Real Ale for many years. I have been thinking of creative ways to raise money for the church to enable us to pay our annual Parish Share which this year will be over £100,000.
I have worked with the Four Candles Brewpub in Broadstairs to brew a St Laurence beer – a 6.8% ABV Belgian style abbey beer in keeping With the monastic brewing tradition. It will be called St Laurence Gridiron. I am delighted to announce that it will officially launched by the Archbishop of Canterbury on Tuesday 27th March 2018 and will feature at the Margate CAMRA Easter Beer Festival. The bottled beer will be available at local outlets including the Conqueror Ale House in Grange Road, Ramsgate.
