Dressing up Hastings for Jack in the Green.

The Fishermen's Museum, Rock-a-Nore Road, where the Jack will emerge on Monday.

The Dolphin Inn, Rock-a-Nore Road, opens at 09.00 on Monday morning for those witnessing the early stages of the procession to imbibe at; remember, plastic 'glasses' are provided throughout Hastings on this, and other, festival days, so, bring your own pewter tankard if you want to drink from something more substantial.

Harveys Bogie Man (to do with the Jack procession) Ale, 4.3% of easy drinking ale, a pale golden colour with a slightly fruity aroma and dry finish. As Steve the Beermeister said, not enough hops for him, as usual with the lighter Harveys ales, but very drinkable, and enjoyed at the Dolphin Inn!

I'm looking forward to eating a few of Tush and Pat's wonderful Fishermen's Rolls over the 3 days! They can be found near the Fishermen's Museum, Rock-a-Nore Road. 

No 10 joins in! 

Don't forget The Albion's beer festival in George Street.

The other side of The Albion faces the sea as well! 

The Crown 

I also enjoyed a few drinks at the Cinque Ports yesterday!

The First In Last Out, High Street, has its own ale too, Thirst of May (4.1%), using Admiral hops, and tasting more like a traditional 'best bitter' than its pale colour suggests.

And even the Church supports our pagan festival!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
