McMullen's Brewery Event Raises £3,458.25 For Charity

04.07.2018

Our Mac’s Beer & Music Festival is over for another year, and what a weekend it was! The gates of the Hertford Brewery were opened for a charity weekend of music, beers and brewery tours. Over the two days £3,458.25 was raised for Keech Hospice Care, Hertfordshire’s children’s hospice supporting life limited children throughout the regions of Hertfordshire, Luton & Bedfordshire. Keech is being supported by the wider McMullen business and pubs throughout this year.

   

More than 400 music and beer lovers made their way to the Hertford Brewery over the Father’s Day weekend to enjoy the sounds of Dusty Wagons, Bee Arnold, Doug MacDonald, Lawrence Hill and many more organised by Moony Blue Events whilst the brewery poured countless pints directly from the source. Food was provided by some of the Street Food Heroes including Jack’s Smoke Shack and The Prawnbroker.

This was our second and now annual Father’s Day weekend festival bringing the local community in and celebrating the authentic heritage behind the oldest brewers in Hertfordshire. Fergus & Tom McMullen were on hand pouring pints in the glorious sunshine as well as leading sold out brewery tours along with brewers Chris Evans and Jack Baron.

   

Guests were also able to admire iconic dray vehicles such as the covered horse drawn cart last used in 1948 as well as our Sentinel Steam Wagon bar which has recently been making its way through Hertfordshire serving champion McMullen ales directly from the pumps.

Tom McMullen said “As part of our community and charity engagement we are delighted to be supporting Keech again this year whilst also celebrating father’s day weekend. This has brought our total raised for Keech Hospice Care this year to nearly £19,000”

   

A special thanks to our volunteers for their involvement and support during the event. Here’s to next years!
