London Meeting in July

Although details have been in the Event Diary for some time, just thought we would remind everyone.

Saturday July 22nd at the Royal Oak, Tabard Street, London starting at 12 noon, Great venue, always well attended.

And Yes we will be holding a further auction of labels from the late Des Clarke’s collection. More details in due course.

So we look forward to a good crowd, enjoying the Harveys ales, excellent food and of course ‘Summer in the City’.

This may well set off a couple of our regulars, with more appropriate song titles.

Commenting on this Blog

If you have tried adding a comment to any of the threads on this blog recently, you may have found that the web site would not accept your comment. I certainly have had problems.

It appears that due to a recent upgrade to the background electrickery, registered users must log in on the home page before being ‘allowed’  to post a comment. Now you are no doubt wondering if you are a registered user. Well if you are a member of the Society & have in the past received a user name & password, then ‘Yes’  you are.

So I am afraid you will need to dig out those bits of information & get into the habit of logging on. You could also visit the members forum, once you have logged on. The forum will be delighted to to hear from you, as it is feeling somewhat neglected.

If you are one of our contributors, who are not as yet a member. Then you can add comments as you have in the past.

Sorry if this puts anyone off due to all the extra keywork, but at present that is how it is. But at least you now know why.

Peterborough Meeting & Auction

Just to remind everyone that our Spring Meeting is being held on 22nd April at The Brewery Tap, 80, Westgate, Peterborough, PE1 2AA.

Kick off is 12.00 or thereabouts, travel permitting of course. There will be another auction of labels from the late Des Clarke’s collection.

As you will see from the images below, we are expecting some competitive bidding and of course you have to be there to stand a chance of taking home some new labels.

      

   

Members only, allowed to bid in the auction. However we are always happy to welcome guests.

We look forward to seeing you there

A Blast from the Past – LOTY 2013

Back in the 2013 LOTY competition, we received an entry of a Cupids Ale label & at the time many collectors asked the question.

‘Who brewed this, where do I include it in my collection’

Well, thanks to one of our intrepid label hounds, we can now report that it was almost certainly brewed by RCH Brewery of West Hewish, near Weston-super-Mare.

And before you ask, no we don’t have an image to hand, but if someone does, let us have a scan & we will be happy to retro fit into this post.

Brighton & Hove Wine Company Ltd

One of our very keen (e)Bay watchers has advised that a label from the above company sold on the well known internet auction site for over £100.And he wonders if this is a record for this particular type of label, namely a bottler of beers, rather than a brewer.

I am not sure what the current record for a single brewery label is either. Last I heard it was over £1000, but I am sure several of our regulars will be able to give us an update on this & perhaps even provide a scan of the label in question.

As you know we try not to miss the opportunity of bringing you images of labels you may not have seen before, so here are three labels from Brighton & Hove Wine Company Ltd.

        

Our thanks to he that ‘watcheth’ the auction sites & to Eric for the scans of what I think are truly stunning labels. I look forward to seeing your comments

Spring Meeting in Peterborough, April 22nd

We are pleased to announce that we are returning to The Brewery Tap, 80, Westgate, Peterborough, PE1 2AA for our Spring Members meeting & our pre-AGM committee meeting. This is a great venue just a short stroll from Peterborough train station. If you missed it last year and to be fair most of you did indeed miss it, you now have another chance to visit an interesting pub serving Oakham Ales & excellent Thai food. Even our webmaster, Peter, who is a bit of a curry connoisseur, thought the food was excellent!

So why not come along & meet up with the collectors, you haven’t seen for a while, swop some labels & tales of acquisitions or perhaps near misses. Of course there will also be another auction of labels from the collection of the dearly departed, Des Clarke. These auctions are always interesting & of course, give you the chance to add to you collection, often much more cheaply that you might imagine. We will publish some images of the labels up for grabs nearer the time & these will include those that were prevented from being sold at the London meeting, due to their kidnap by gremlins.

So, put the date in your diary, right now & we look forward to seeing you all.
