What started off as a brief exchange last year with Phil Hardy ended up becoming the ‘Big Beery Night’ and in the process raised £3128.82 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The highlight of the evening being the auction and the now infamous £80 bottle of Pliny The Elder.

Well, not content with that, we’re doing it again this year and there are a number of ways that you can get involved on Friday 11 November. We want to go higher this year and have set a target of £5000.

We know these charities do a great job encouraging people to stop drinking for a month, but what if we turned that totally on it’s head? Let’s drink for charity and  raise a glass to the ones we’ve lost by donating the cost of our drinks on that evening to Macmillan. This way we’re supporting our industry and charity at the same time.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved this year…
