The Cask Ales & Strange Brews Festival is on again in the Franciscan Well Brewpub.

We have been asked to judge the cask ales again this year on the Saturday (January 27th).

I'm looking for some volunteers to help judge on the day. It's always a nice, relaxed day of judging. We will aim to start around 1pm and hope to be done before 6pm.

I'll be around to help if needed, arriving in Cork at about 12.15 if the new roadworks at Castlemartyr doesn't hold the bus up for too long.
I have no experience in judging beer but if you are stuck I'll help out. Or if you need a runner etc. I'm happy to do that

Yeah, Judith is confirmed so I'll add to the "official" list.

That's technically 6 judges as I'll have to run the competition, unless anyone would rather run the numbers. I don't mind either way.
