Dusting off the hops!
What a great way to spend an
evening! Hythe & Waterside Rotary members and their guests were
given a warm welcome by Toby, proprietor of the Dusty Barrel, a craft
beer micropub in Hythe.
Not normally open on a Monday,
H&W Rotary had exclusive use of the venue for a Beer Tasting
Masterclass with Toby explaining beer making methods and how they affect
the end result, before serving everyone with 8 different types of beer
to taste and evaluate.
Opinions varied enormously as each
beer, including lager, pale ale, modern bitter and (quite a favourite
with many) a Trapist beer was marked for its appearance, smell, taste
Ray Lewis, President of Hythe & Waterside
Rotary said "Since reducing our formal meetings to fortnightly instead
of weekly, it is wonderful to be able to spend social time together in
the local community. This is not only good for our members but helps
with our links with local businesses and shows local people that
Rotarians have fun alongside the more serious work they do."
& Waterside Rotary would like to thank the Dusty Barrel for making
them so welcome and for making it such an informative yet fun evening.
Please note: It's not all about old men in suits poised to give cheques to charity!
(Although we do that too)
