Presentation to 2012 Beer Festival Sponsors and Donations

Each year, about this time, BRAAS invites, all those sponsors who helped make that year's festival a success, to a Pie & A Pint night in a local hostelry.

Also invited are representatives of the local groups and other causes receiving donations from the previous year's festival.

This year the presentation was again held at the Corbie Inn at Corbiehall in Bo'ness, not only because both Gail and Giles are committee members but the main reason being it is the only pub in Bo'ness offering real ales and as such a bit of a no-brainer.

Sponsors Commemorative Tankard

In addition to the pie and pint all our sponsors are presented with a Commemorative Tankard and their Certificate of Sponsorship.

The certificate is the one that hangs above the beer they sponsored during the festival and the tankard has an etched logo with the festival theme for that year.

Every year a different theme is chosen and has become a bit of a tradition. Last year it was the Return of the Bridgeness Slab.

Although a bit of a cliche, the festival does continue to go from strength to strength with more breweries, more beers and more sponsors.
