Bobtown Beer Bash latest

NEW sponsors have been signed up for Roberttown’s real ale festival. Financial planning firm Utopia Group will sponsor this year’s ‘Bobtown Beer Bash.’ The firm is about to move to Roberttown from nearby Norristhorpe. The third annual festival takes place at Roberttown Community Centre in Church Road on Saturday, July 28. Organisers are promising the event will be bigger and better than previous years. Utopia’s support means more cash for charity and local good causes – and a bigger selection of beers. This year there will be around 40 cask beers as well as a variety of real ciders and perries. Robert Knapp, one of the organisers, said: “The last two years have been extraordinarily successful, but we are not content to rest on our laurels. With the support from Utopia we are now able to widen the net and bring in an even more diverse collection of beers and ciders.”
