Go Shepherd Neame! They have just launched this Red Sails beer, publishing its picture on Facebook with the caption “Look out for ‘Red Sails’ at the Wetherspoon Beer Festival until Nov 11th http://instagr.am/p/
I am a bit of a fan of Shep’s products and I remember that during the rebuild of the Cambria, I was on the viewing gallery when Jonathan Neame came aboard with some guests and I did our rebuild story ‘schpiel’ to him finishing a bit cheekily (and bravely – I was a bit awestruck by having him among my audience) by suggesting Shep’s do a beer called Cambria. Well, this is probably as close as we are going to get and depicts our great friends SB Greta but I wonder, given the name, whether Mike Maloney, of Red Sails film fame, had a hand in this?
Either way, I am spitting that I cannot be there to nip into a Wetherspoons and grab me a couple of bottles which I’d probably keep on the mantle-piece after I’d drained the contents.
Cheers Jonathan, Cheers Mike, Cheers Steve Norris and all aboard SB Greta tonight!
