« on: December 10, 2016, 11:15:19 PM »
After a meeting we had today at the premisses of Corfu Beer The next  Corfu Beer Festival
Dates are... from the 27th September to the 1st October.
There are a fiew reasons that it is decided to be held a couple of weeks earlier than normaly.... one of them beeing the fact that this year's theme would be " Corfu meets the Czech_Republic".
Aparently there are no more direct flights to corfu from this country after after the end of September....
Stay tuned for more .... the official anouncement will be online shortly.
.............. But you heard it from me first ..yea?!!?! ;)

The end of September will be recorded in the diary.

This years Festival was excellent and the organisers put on a feast of entertainment
Enjoyed it so much, and that's from someone who does not drink.

I hope to be in attendance once again

As I reported earlier, the 2016 Festival was a masterpiece of organisation and pleasurable experience. My few hours there overcame my being alone and the band who played traditional Irish songs had more than my feet tapping. The beer was superb (locally brewed Red) and within the context of my week in Arillas a real highlight. I only went up once on the free bus, but as a regular in Arillas, I also spent many hours in the Nut communing with all and sundry. For a newcomer, the festival could have provided 5 days of pleasure.

The earlier date next year will see many more tourists attending and they will have lots of fun and entertainment. PhilnJen will probably be there, but until her legs are mended and she has recovered, nobody knows. For the first time in many years we do not have a trip home booked for next year.

My real sadness though, is how it once again shrinks the Arillas year. Having a huge event in late October keeps it viable for the businesses. It will all have to close earlier next year.  October - or even early November - is the most beautiful time in Arillas. Jen and I have had our happiest times then.

I think the earlier date , although shortening the "season" , will make it even more popular . It will be many years before we can even consider going to the beer festival as we're slaves to school holidays ..... :-(

I know the feeling I am also a slave to the school holidays due to working in one. I would love to attend the beer and wine festival,i'm sure i will one day. However it does have other benefits...I finish Thursday lunch for Christmas....can't wait!
