John Peel Centre Pump Clip

The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts

I was originally approached by Attila at Glastonwick Festival to try and get my beer in to John Peel Centre .. I now brew the 'John Peel Arts Centre' house beer and am involved in producing beer for their events.

6th November .. Eddie and the Hot Rods

21st November .. Thy Last Drop

17th December .. Dr Feelgood

A major event in 2014 was the bar for Woody Mann, guitarist extraordinaire and all round good bloke. I used the Watney Mann India Pale Ale Logo to create a 'Woody Mann India Pale Ale', and even featured what was potentially the death knell of the British Brewing Industry .. the Watneys Red Barrel image! .. Woody was thrilled and I was thrilled that Woody was thrilled etc etc et al. And if there is any doubt that Woody ranks amongst the Worlds greatest Guitarists ..

Cobbold

Folk East

FolkEast A new opening for Bartrams Brewery was involvement with the organisers of Folkeast, this is held in the Grounds of Glemham Hall, the Country Seat of Philip Hope Cobbold of the brewing family of the same name. With the help of a Cobbold archivist I was able to work on a 1950's recipe using East Anglian Malt and Goldings and Fuggles hops to reproduce a traditional bitter ale (press release). This beer is available not only at the Festival itself but at local pubs, most notably the Blaxhall 'Ship' and the Sweffling 'White Horse'

We here at Bartrams Brewery are nothing if not ahead of the field when it comes to trend setting rocking teenage combos, here is Eric Clapton, principle trombonist with 'Girls Allowed' ... okay, okay ... we got involved with doing bars for the Action for Brazil's Children charity, (A.B.C.) set up by Jimena Page, wife of Sir Jimmy Page. I had the good fortune to shake the hand that created some of the greatest riffs in Rock history Led Zeppelin

Luke, (son, a.k.a. trainee brewer) is the one with the hair, Dan, a friend, has less ... Jimmy is the one in the middle, I am holding the camera.
