Black_Badge said:To celebrate the formation of The Rifles in Feb 07, Sharp's Brewery of Rock, Cornwall, are making available a commemorative cask beer, which they can deliver anywhere within a radius of London to Birmingham. Extra effort may be needed to deliver further North and East, but this can be arranged. Price will be around Â£52 for a 9 gallon firkin (72 pints).
Regimental messes and company bars should get official notice, but it would show a bit of style if as many pubs, bars and social clubs in the new Rifles recruiting areas could demonstrate solidarity by running out a barrel of Sharp's Rifles!
So spread the word. Sharp's can be contacted direct on 01208 862121 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or contact the Rifles Working Group (particularly if you are a battalion outside the standard delivery area).
Sharp's have put themselves out over this, so it would be nice to give them a bit of business. It should also help raise awareness of the new Regiment and, of course, be a good excuse for a p1ss up!
