But not quite as you know it. Hands up if - like me - you look forward to the end of May and the excuse to duck into a giant tent on Jesus Green to drink beer, scoff some nosh and meet up with loads of people? It's surely no exaggeration to say it's one of the social highlights of the year for Cambridge locals. At Thirsty, we also get the chance to catch up with lots of brewers and other hospitality folk, so it's a great networking gig, too.
Covid-19 has obviously put a giant STOP to all that sort of thing for the mo (and for the foreseeable future). So we had a think about what we could do instead this week. We've always had access to the very best beer in the universe, so we had that side well covered. It was just a question of getting the stuff out to you and helping you organise a virtual 'get together' with your mates, where you can at least share part of the beer festival experience together, albeit from home via the Interwebinstawaves.
We've assembled five great line-ups - hoppy, sour, dark, international and mixed - each containing six beers from different brewers. We've made a cider pack, too, and there's a mead pack coming. Go have a look at the range here >>>. As well as the packs, we'll be serving up litres of draught freshies all week to drink at home. Keep an eye online on what's pouring.
That ties into our decision to gradually reopen at Chesterton Road from Tue 19th May, initially just for limited daytime hours Tue to Sat, for collections of online orders and for contactless take-home purchases. We would strongly discourage you from making a lengthy trip over to see us. Let us continue to deliver great grog to you like we have over the last eight weeks. But if you're local to Chesterton Road and can combine dropping into Thirsty with your other shopping (Radmore? Boots? Wallers?) and/or exercise routines, we're open 10-2 on Tue/Wed/Thu and 10-6 on Fri/Sat. Sadly, you won't be allowed inside the building and we ask you to rigorously respect the 2m rule while waiting outside. But it's a small step back from the depths of this crisis. Let's hope the worst really is behind us all...
