there were ONCE TWO friends
BREWING IN A BARN...
In the current situation FreshBeerFriday has moved from Strawberry Fields at the front of Flower farm to the festival barn at the rear.

It was waaaaay back in 2014 when two old Uni friends bumped into each other at their kids’ awards ceremony in County Hall.
“Do you still brew?” Steve asked, remembering the days when Anne could sink a pint in 6 seconds.
“I certainly do,” replied Anne, who had earlier that year in fact featured on The One Show for a chili and lime concoction.
And with that, they ditched their careers and founded The Godstone Brewers.
A lot has happened since that day.
They’ve developed more beer recipes than Head Of Labels; Will, can keep up with, attended what feels like close to 1000 beer festivals, braved the rain and cold in countless farmers markets, and even dressed up in full lederhosen at Flower Farm’s annual Oktoberryfest.
Oh and Anne downed a pint in 8 seconds - not bad for a 60 year old...
The best part however, has been getting to know everyone along the way. Many thanks are in order for Patrick and friends at Flower Farm, who kindly welcomed punters to quirky venues such as the tearoom or 16th Century Shepherds Barn, every Friday, for #FreshBeerFriday (one of Steve’s better ideas).
Perhaps we’ll see you there sometime?!
