On Saturday evening at 6.50 pm the Star Inn at Folly Hall put its 5,000th guest beer through the pumps, and that excludes the hundreds that have appeared at festivals. It was a Mallinsons special brew, Star 5k, and the thirsty regulars managed to shift the barrel in 100 minutes - that's going some - but according to Sam not the quickest, which was polished off in just 70 minutes, glad I wasn't serving that day!!

Joking aside, it is a great achievement for Sam and the team and shows how a back street local can be transformed into a beer drinking mecca attracting discerning drinkers from far and wide. Long may it continue !
