Billericay Town FC and Lions beer festival
Beer + football = very happy half pint gentleman, this probably is what has kept me at orient for all these years as the quality of beer out does the quality of football most weeks!
Billericay town is my local non league club which I have seen a few times over the last few seasons, including breaking away from orients terrible goal drought in search of a goal fest only to witness their first goaless draw in two years!
The stand out beer for me was RCH Brewery Old Slug Porter and Elephant school Brewery Co Aussie Blonde also of course the excellent Farmers Ales Pucks Folly. But to be honest I think all the beers I picked was lovely (I was very lucky) I really recommend this festival to people and it is one I look out for around summer. Not only is it a good way to experience the tastes of essex in a more personally and relaxing way compared to some of the larger festivals but you are also helping raise money with every sip you take! Billericay tow fc festival a game of two halves… Or maybe 9!!!!
