8th February: Launch of nicky, a collaboration with Mills Brewing, at Favourite Beers, 105 Hewlett Road, Cheltenham GL52 6BB. The beer — a collaboration with Jonny Mills, of Mills Brewing, was originally planned to mark the anniversary of the shop in October 2020, but very sadly, just three weeks prior to the planned brew day last March, shop owner Leigh Norwood’s wife, Nicky died very suddenly and unexpectedly from a brain aneurism. Leigh decided he still wanted to go ahead with the collaboration, but he asked that it be brewed in memory of his wife.
12th-14th February: Great British Beer Festival Winter. Like the GBBF of summer 2020, it’s a virtual festival. Find out more at the festival website.
