Last minute reminder that we still have a few places left for TONIGHT'S visit to the National Brewery Museum:


National Brewery museum on Thursday 14th October, arranged by David Smalley. More information about the centre at www.nationalbrewerycentre.co.uk.
We're planning on a tour around this exceptional heritage centre, rendered even
more exceptional by the provision of drinks tokens to sample the products and a
two course meal. We are planning to meet at 6pm, with the museum visit starting
at 6.30 and a tasty meal at 7.30pm. The museum visit will be a piece of theatre,
with a professional actor in character and in costume explaining how beer has
been made through the years. Cost is only £15 a head!

We will also be able to access the Vom Fass franchise operation in the Museum shopping centre - a great chance to get some early Christmas gifts organised. Click here for more: http://www.vomfassuk.com/Webdocs/shop/index.php

Places are limited for what I am sure will be a memorable and enjoyable evening so please register your interest to avoid disappointment. Please contact David dtmsmalley@btinternet.com or
telephone 0115 8477007.

East Midlands Packaging Society
National Brewery Centre Museum visit– a trip down memory lane


On Thursday 14th October the East Midlands branch of the Packaging Society visited The National Brewery Centre, a world-class museum and visitor centre that celebrates Burton upon Trent's proud brewing heritage and it's influence on brewing techniques throughout the world.

Whether you are an ale aficionado or a family looking for a great day out The National Brewery Centre has lots to offer. You'll be transported back to a bygone era, when Burton's brewing industry revolutionised brewing techniques throughout the world. At one time, there were more than 33 breweries in the town and although this number has dwindled to a few, its legacy still lives on.

The Brewing and Heritage Galleries explore the evolution of brewing techniques, from ancient times, right up to the modern day. There are hundreds of exhibits and rare artefacts on display, plus a dazzling holographic-style show using the age-old 'Peppers Ghost' illusion and a variety of multi-media presentations to bring the story to life.

The museum was a piece of theatre, with a professional actor in character and in costume, in his old cloth cap and apron, explaining how beer has been made through the years, followed by a ‘slap-up’ old fashioned steak & ale pie and chips!
It was a memorable, enjoyable and entertaining evening. Many thanks to the staff at the museum for some great hospitality, to those who attended (around 20 – an excellent turnout) and to David Smalley for arranging the trip. If you’d like to find out more about the centre, visit www.nationalbrewerycentre.co.uk.
