Scaffolding is a necessary pest, a bit like slugs eating my veg or wasps in the summer.
I once went to Florence and the great cathedral was covered in the stuff. How annoyed was I. The same happened in Rome with The Trevi Fountain. I was not amused.
But then it comes off, as if by magic the structure below appears, more beautiful, brighter and and all is well.
This is what 6/8 Kafe hope now their monstrous outdoor cover has been taken down and to celebrate they are having a craft beer festival. Well why not, they deserve it. Let’s toast progress!
Sitting at the back of House of Fraser on Temple Row 6/8 Kafe is an independent coffee shop of some repute in the city and a innovator of the fine art of the Barista.
Festival organiser and proprietor Dav said:
”Our festival is about enjoying local beer with the amazing people that make them.
”It’s about tasting, learning and enjoying everything about craft beer.
The line up includes:
On Thursday ‘meet the brewers’.
Burning Soul Brewing:
Bringing OCT IPA 6.7%
Mount Olympus Pale Ale 5.2%
Insert [Blanc] Single Hop Ale 5.2%
On Friday there is a ‘meet the brewer’ session with Twisted Barrel Ale who are launching their annual winter special ”Dark Knight Rises” and a Belgian Dubbel at Six Eight.
On Saturday two Black Country brewers Sacre Brew at 6pm and Fixed Wheel are at the festival.
Fixed Wheel will bring ‘Carbon Black IPA 6.8%, ‘Coffee Fix ‘6.1% and ‘Single Speed Equinox’ 4.5%.
Sacre Brew will bring 3 beers: Sloe Loris, Wendigo, & Donkey’s Years!
Throughout the festival they will have live acoustic musicians appearing and playing to their hearts content.
Tracks like down with the scaffolding should be popular on the playlist.
