Visit to Charles Wells Brewery

A visit to Charles Wells Brewery – Tuesday 13th September 2016LSEMS logo

With summer over why not celebrate the coming of autumn with a visit to a brewery? Charles Wells, Havelock Street, Bedford, MK40 4LU, have kindly agreed to show us around their operation and then provide some food along with a tasting. For those of you more used to drinking beer rather than understanding the complexities of its production, now is the time to put that right. The itinerary is shown below:

5.45pm: Arrival
6.00pm: Tour followed by a buffet, tasting and cash bar.

For members, this meeting is free, but for guests will cost £10.

For those of you that might wish to imbibe without the worry of having to drive afterwards, your committee has arranged a hotel in close proximity to the brewery area, namely, Embankment Hotel, The Embankment, Bedford, MK40 3PD (01234 261332) and will only cost £82 B&B as long as you mention the name Sue Panter.

This should be a great opportunity to learn about the brewing process, understand about such iconic brands as Bombardier and have a drink or two in the convivial company of your President and friends. Please let me know [g.m.bruce(@)] if you wish to attend.

Yours sincerely

Graham Bruce
LSEMS Secretary
