'Hop in the Box' Beer Festival at The Fleece, Boxford

Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 12:00am to Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 10:55pm


John from Mill Green Brewery gives us the details...

We have our first beer festival at the Fleece Hotel in Boxford taking place over the Easter Weekend.

As the name would suggest we have focused on the Hop and the explosion of exciting hop varieties being used now by the new wave of micro brewery’s including our own Mill Green Brewery. We have a selection of the finest hoppy beers available including  Arbor’s ‘Hoptickledelusion’ , Harviestoun’s ‘Bitter & Twisted’  and Mill Green’s ‘Wall of Death’ and Dark Stars ‘Six Hop’

This should be enough to tempt you into the unspoilt public rooms of the Fleece Hotel (the festival is in the Guild Room upstairs)
