Virtual Beer Tasting

Another Successful Virtual Event

The second virtual OI event, which took place on Friday 19th March, was hailed another great success.

OIs from across the UK attended the online Beer Tasting from a local brewery Calvor Beers. We also welcomed OIs who had not been to an OI event before or at least, not for a very long time. Including many who returned for the second virtual event.

Calvors Beers founder Alec Williamson said he was struggling to find any unique, genuine lagers locally that he liked and then identified a significant opportunity in the UK drinks industry for quality English craft lager.

Adam from Calvors treated the OIs to four excellent lagers which included, Pilsner, Vienna Lager, Session IPA and finally Dry Hopped. Explaining a little about each beer variety and the beer itself. 

Steve Runnacles (OI 1963-74) hosted the event encouraging the audience members to share their stories since School whilst enjoying their great selection of lager.

With grateful thanks to Coes, Calvors Brewery Ltd, delivery driver and host Steve Runnacles, The Ol Club Committee and Carrie Baker, Development Officer, Ipswich School.
