Subject: Lower Stoke Winter Sings
From: Richard Bridge
Date: 17 Jul 11 - 10:44 AM

To support the newly independent Knockholt, the Lower Stoke Winter Sings will be back, format as before. At each a hat will be passed to collect funds for the independent Knockholt.

More nearer the time.

I will be liaising with Vicky the manageress about putting on a barrel (or half-barrel) of a specialist ale preferably from Sheps (as it is a Sheps pub) under gravity or on beer engines for us.

As I might start before Xmas, I thought Late Red would be nice for the first one.

Vicky the manageress was kind enough to say to me "The pub is yours, do what you like" so suggestions not involving strippers please!

Lower Stoke is in North Kent, UK, ME3 9RA.

Schedule now firming up: the following Sundays.

9 Oct, 13 Nov, 4 Dec, 8 Jan, 5 Feb, and 4 Mar this winter.

I will not be wholly ratarsed in Jan as RC4 have a gig at the Good Intent on Jan 10.

Same format as usual - arrive opening time, get drunk, leave when football gets to be a nuisance on TV, eat squidge at my gaff, bugger off.

If anybody follows that silly game with a round ball (or any other silly game likely to f*** the above plans up by being televised please do tell me!

Oh WOE! The section of the Shepherd Neame website that I used to help me select the wonderful beers we drank 2 years ago has vanished, and I can't even remember the name of the chocolatey porter. Of course I remember Late Red and the Burns Night Special - and the Christmas Ale although I was not SO keen on that...

I have fired off an agonised email to Shepherd Neame. Watch this space, beer connoisseurs.

Right - we are on until Xmas. Starting Oct 9. The reason is that the pub may be starting refurbishment after Xmas and there may not be a room for us to play in. If there is (and it isn't needed for eg restaurant plans) then we can continue. Beer under investigation - watch this space. We may have to go with any real beer that will come in a half-barrel or is on discount for the first one until our consumption can be assessed - negotiations with the brewery on this front cannot really be started until after Sept 19. Vegans are cleared for vegan snacks. I will pre-prepare spuds for the first month, then if restaurant comes on stream they may prefer to sell food rather than give it away!

A potential major plus is that there is now a saddleroom - a bit like the old room that used to get folked in at the Style & Winch - out back, with potential for us to use that if the restaurant refurbishment makes a problem in the pub after Xmas.

Arrive Sunday opening time (noon).

Drink beer and sing.

About 1 pm I will bring over the roast 'tatoes (or the pub will ex-oven them) and I will turn my oven down and put squidge on to simmer.

About 6 pm we will get bored and the oofs will want to watch foopball on the smellyvision so we will wobble back to mine and eat squidge.

Then you will boogie off.

The weather outside will be chilly and damp, so no point in doing anything else.

Great afternoon/evening. Shame there weren't more, but I agree, the landlord seemed very impressed. I had a pint of the Sheps Smooth that was new to me. It was very nice. Tea and coffee were good too, at a very reasonable 50p per cup. Pierre's sausage loaf was a triumph, but I had just one slice, and about 4 spuds, to make room for the squidge.
The medium hot was my choice, and I finished the dish off. Roll on the next one.

I will be aiming for a slightly less fiery "hot one" and all squidges slightly more runny (and to full vegan standard).

I will also try to make sure to use Maris Piper spuds - the other roasties I have done with them came out well but it might just be pot luck - and one tray will be veggie and the other in goose fat.

I have sampled the St Austell Trelawny. A light gold, fresh in the nose, citrus (somewhere between lemon and tangerine) on the palate. I'm not getting a strong malt from it, but it's very very clean and suppable. A long finish, but not turning too bitter at all. Delightful and refreshing. I can see I might drink many of it!

For those who get there early there is also a mild at 3%. It's under pressure and coming up a bit cold through a flash cooler but if you don't rush it the flavour emerges, dark and malty but not too thick, as it warms up a little. But apparently the locals have taken strongly to it so there may not be a lot left by tomorrow.

Before it was taken over by Fuller's, I used to drink Gale's whenever I visited my mate who lives in Gosport. I always understood it to be a Hampshire brewery.

I remember one Gale's pub where, apart from other delights, you had both a light mild and a dark mild available for "starters"! And they were both excellent!

Fuller's, alas, is not what it once was. I am, however, looking forward to the Seafarer with an open mind (and open gullet! :))

A wide range of beer choices.

I have opted for a stronger beer this time - Brains Reverend James.

Notes as follows: -

"The Rev. James beer is one steeped in history. Acquired after the purchase of Crown Buckley, Rev. James is brewed to an original recipe dating back to 1885. The beer is named after one of the original owners of Buckley Brewery, the Rev, James Buckley, a business man with two conflicting roles – saving souls and satisfying thirsts.

The Rev. James is brewed to a traditional recipe and has been described as having a flavour not commonly available these days. Full-bodied and warming, The Rev. James is rich in palate, spicy and aromatic with a deeply satisfying finish."

The other candidates were

Bombardier (at 4.1) - but everyone is doing it these days
Youngs ordinary - but (a) we've had it and (b) although it was lovely Leopards disapproved.
St Austell Tribute - but we had one St Austell already (see below) and change is there to be rung
St Austell Trelawny - we had and was smashing, but been there done that
Adnams Lighthouse (3.4) - a bit over hoppy for my taste
Master Brew - Sorry shirt murderer I just don't like it
Greene King IPA - (3.6) which although hoppy I like but I think I am in a minority there
Reverend James (see above)
Hobgoblin - (4.5 in cask) but again very well known (and IMHO more damaging than a rated 4.5 would suggest)


So there you have it from the beer gourmet.

I report with mixed emotions that the Reverend James ran out about 3 pm-ish. Several folkies were less than delighted, but it proves that we are re-introducing real beer to Lower Coke and if makes Mick the Landlord happy.

Next one 5 Feb.

Last one 4 Mar.

In view of the increasing thirst Mick the Landlord may go to an 11 gallon barrel of Late Red for both.

Apologies for non-attendance, again. Due to the clement weather we got involved in the garden (not in that way), winter clearance and finishing the Folly. I wasn't sure what time the karaoke started, or when the sing shifts from the pub, so I didn't fancy the hour drive when the light went, in case things had gone off the boil.

Sounds like the Reverend went down well, you obviously had a good afternoon. Roll on February & we'll try again. Keep up the good work!

Exciting news! The villagers have been demanding real beer!   Indeed to such an extent that Mick the landlord is thinking seriously about putting on (for our next one) not only a barrel of whatever I select from the list he can get from his source, but ALSO a barrel of Late Red in February.

The beer engines have received pretty new ceramic handles, and it seems likely that the pool table will vanish and some pretty new leather furniture arrive in the saloon area - and carpet where the pool table used to be.

Fire in the grate and logburner in the pub, roast spuds on the bar, squidge in my house in front of log fire afterwards. Collection for Knockholt funds.
