A special brew for Everdon Fete “A fete worse than Death”

Come and taste this very special brew!
Hill Brothers Brewery have brewed a Limited Edition Hand Crafted Ale for Everdon Fete to be sold in the pub over the August Bank Holiday week end and on Fete Day.

A Fete Worse Than Death is dark amber in colour, steeped in hops before fermentation to create a deeper hop aroma. This beer is the perfect craft bitter to enjoy at Everdon Fete.

About Hill Brothers:
The Hill Brothers were born and raised in Everdon. As teenagers, they made their first batch of beer because The Plough was shut. Fast-forward 10 years and they are running a micro-brewery – making craft beer for pubs, restaurants and beer shops in Camden and the surrounding area.

For more information about their event craft beers go to www.hillsbrothersbrewery.co.uk!
