Freedom Brewery (our kind hosts for the evening):

Freedom Lager was originally founded in 1995 in Fulham, London. In 2004, Freedom Brewery moved to its current home in the heart of rural Staffordshire, near the world famous brewing town of Burton-on-Trent.

Freedom Brewery lies in an idyllic country setting, benefiting from its own source of sustainable, pure limestone Spring water. This water, filtered over millions of years through layers of natural alabaster, is the water that has attracted brewers to the Burton area for over three hundred years. Prior to brewing, this water requires no chemical treatment or additives, as it already has the necessary ‘hard’ qualities.

A combination of the finest quality ingredients and optimum maturation period (four to six weeks) ensures Freedom Lagers are satisfyingly full of flavour.

Packington Pork (kindly sponsoring the BBQ)

Packington Pork is truly free-range meat, with a delicious taste hard to find elsewhere.
Packington prides itself on:

* Healthy, happy, stress-free pigs
* Free-range means free-range! Our pigs are bred and live outdoors for their whole lives
* Packington pigs are produced to the highest of welfare standards (RSPCA Freedom Food accredited)
* Freedom Food – RSPCA Monitored Antibiotic, growth promoter and additive free – natural meat with no water added
* High in selenium

Packington Pork is run by Staffordshire based, fourth generation pig farmer, Robert Mercer. The first Packington farm was situated at Packington Fields Farm near Lichfield in Staffordshire. Since then we have set up several other free-range farms around the local area for our pigs, to ensure they all have plenty of space. The farms are premium, well drained grassland perfect for raising the very best pigs.
