Main bars drinks selection

Recommended Posts

They were definitely more expensive than the other real-ale bars, but I remember about £5-6 a pint. Could have been more expensive onese there too and I just gave them a wide berth!

Enjoyed my evening there though, on the Thursday IIRC

They certainly do sell Real Ale there. I worked for Shelter for two  years and that was  the bar we were at for our first year. The best bar by far. 

I don’t drink ale but that particular bar seems to have a good selection of drinks. I go there fo the Guinness.

Got 4 crates of Mallets the other day, to enter the ticket competition, but I drink cider anyway so it was a win/win, especially if successful in the comp, please god!  It's not too disimilar to Strongbow, even the can looks like it a bit.  And it's made by Brothers, they've done well to get this contract rather than just have the one bar, which I believe is being replaced.  I do prefer Thatchers but after a couple of days at the festival the tastebuds are about gone so it doesn't really matter!

They're replacing the Brothers Bar??

It would be madness if they replaced it with anything other than another Brothers Bar! Maybe tweak the colour of the sign a bit, that's it.

So they're replacing Thatcher's with some Strongbow-like type of Brothers, whilst simultaneously replacing the Brother's bar that sells all the delicious types of Brothers that do not taste like Strongbow?

Brilliant. :wacko:

Discovered it back in 08 and been back every year since. Its tremendous open late night. Just a small organic wine tent which sells hot cider and hot rum punch its fantastic.

Is there any back up to the Brothers Bar not being there? Whilst not a fan it’s still a Wednesday tradition to have a 7% pint by the time I should know better

I would be surprised if the Brothers bar vanishes.  Their Twitter account still posts vast amount of Glastonbury linked stuff, and they've made sure there's a clear difference in the branding of the two drinks.

Tuborg looks like and tastes like its been scooped out of the longdrops and mixed with purified white dog shit. Its amazing that its still a thing. 

Glasto HQ need to have a look at EOTR and let a decent craft beer company have a free run at a bar and see how it goes. 

Yes was thinking the same about EOTR. A good look a Green Man would also be a good shout.

It's the pennard organic wine stall on the walk towards Avalon. Always stop for something refreshing either hot or cold depending on the weather

What about if you usually drink wine, Prosecco... what would you suggest? ??‍♀️

There are wine places too with huge inflatable wine bottles on top. Sure there's one on west holts and another somewhere. Memory is flaky but they definitely also sell prosecco. They will sell you a bottle but obviously has to be decanted first and about 30 of your fine English pounds. Might be worth investing in some water bottles.

My mate disappeared for a few hours in 2011 and reemerged with some delicious hot rum punch, it took us until 2015 to work out where it had come from.

It was something I was told the other week, I've tweeted them to see if it was true but not had a reply yet.

Tuborg is far from the worst choice for a 3-4% lager. It's not bad on draft from a pub... much better than its brewer's main lager... Carlsberg! Be grateful its not that sweet tasting piss water...

Uhh.

While I've not seen any confirmation of anything for this year, in 2017 it was Carlsberg and not Tuborg.

Neither are anywhere near acceptable.

And what would be?? Considering it has to be a 3-4% standard lager to cater to the masses....

It's not perfect but I've always considered the Glasto beers to be much better than many other major festivals and major gigs. 

Last years Download for example was abysmal.

They could though do much better, local ales and the increasingly popular craft ales wouldn't go a miss...
