Ceilidh at the Festival

Our winter beer festival, Februaryfest kicked off last Friday and Clachaig was graced with hoards of intrepid walkers, climbers and skiers enjoying the recent spell of settled weather. Of course there's nothing better than cosying up by the fire with a well-earned pint after a day on the hill and we were on hand with the logs and a great selection of cask ales from Cairngorm, Houston and Williams Bros Breweries.

Flint, complete with new drummer, opened our festival on Friday night and were fantastic as usual. Saturday it was the turn of Pure Malt to wow the masses with their mesmerising harmonies and ballads, it was an excellent night and everyone went away very happy, none more so than the lucky winners of our raffle who walked away with an array of goodies worthy of the Generation game.....'Didn't he do well!'

Our open session on Sunday evening, although a less raucous affair - well Flint and Pure Malt are a hard act to follow folks - was well attended and many thanks to the guys who gave us a tune or two.

Ale of the weekend was Ceilidh, a Premium cask conditioned Lager from Williams bros.
At 4.7% it is refreshing and flavoursome!

Plenty more fun & frolics to come over the next couple of weeks as Februaryfest continues with Mountain safety lectures, Whisky & Ale tasting master-classes, great live music and an unrivaled selection of cask ales including.........wait for it.......the judges decision in our 'name the beer' competition - you have to be in it to win it folks!

Don't just read about it....come and join us!
