Wild booze walks – Back by popular demand
I called my last two wild booze walks exclusive as I planned to only do two of them. But everyone who attended really enjoyed them and they sold out within 2 days, who’d have thought! Since then I’ve been inundated with people asking when the next one is going to be. So I’ve decided to sit down with my diary and work out a two dates for now. Please note I do not plan to do any more this year, I think! But if you sign up to my blog (look over to the right, under Updates from Andy), I will erm update you!
Sunday 27th July 4pm-6pm, £20 – Strictly limited spaces available (hence more money) One Place left!
Thursday 31st July 4pm-6pm – £12.50 FULL
To book please email me and please state in the subject line which walk you wish to attend. Or feel free to use the contact me form at the bottom of the page.
I’ll be updating this page with more dates as they become available, so please bookmark and check back if you can’t make these dates.
So what are Wild booze walks?
They are 2 hour long strolls, around the stunning backdrop of Brunel’s masterpiece suspension bridge and through the worlds first heritage site at Avon Gorge. Within this majesty we’ll be sipping on something alcoholic, sharing stories of all things boozey and meeting new friends. You’ll also get to hear me waffle on about plants and booze.
What to expect from the Wild Booze walks.
I will be sharing some of things that helped inspired my 2 award winning booze books, Booze for Free and Brewing Britain, my Guardian blog and my up coming Vermouth Documentary. We’ll be identifying some of the plants that can be turned into historic ales, delicious wines and sumptuous cordials. I’ll also be happy to answer any questions you might have about brewing in this informal and relaxed atmosphere. I’ll happily chat about anything from your elderflower champagne woes, to Slow gin tips and problems with beers. All this and booze!
If you like drinking, walking and meeting people the booze walks are an event for you. You know what you can even bring along editions of books my books Brewing Britain or Booze for Free (or both) for me to sign. If you don’t own them, then please let me know when booking and I’ll happily flog them to you.
Where are the wild booze walks held?
The wild booze walks are held in Bristol along the river Severn and lead from the create centre into Leigh woods and back again. Both will start outside the Create centre (click here for how to get there). We will meet near the bench in the car park, but please I urge you to not to drive.
Here are some of the nice things people said about me and the last wild booze walks.
“He’s an engaging talker delivering a wealth of useful information, unusual facts and strange myths. And his home made booze is a rare treat” Nick Moyle, one Thirsty Gardener“I’ve been raving about this walk to everyone. Andy’s so good at imparting his knowledge through laid back and companionable walks … I am a complete convert to wild boozing – beech leaf noyau here I come” Bonnie Hewson.“A delightfully green and pleasant, yet truly educational, walk, a few minutes from the city centre, punctuated with varied and delicious, mostly alcoholic, refreshment, provided and indeed created by our most congenial host. A charming group of people who somehow became ever more affable as the walk went on!” Roger GreenhalghTo book please complete the below.
