A special post General Election Co-ALE-ition ale was launched on the night called ” Monster Crush ” which is a 3.4% hoppy golden session ale brewed by the Wild Weather brewery from Silchester who you may remember brewed us the best selling Co-ALE-ition ale ” HowlinGale ” which has just successfully completed a three months national tour of Wetherspoon pubs across the whole of the UK. The Monster Crush pumpclip features a special photo of Howling looking admiringly at Boris Johnson taken at the Uxbridge & South Ruislip General Election last month as Boris was delivering his acceptance speech.  Guests on the night included Colin Bex, Leader of the Wessex Regionalist Party, the Baron and Mad Max Bobetsky from the Loony Party, Mike Tempest and his team from Wild Weather brewery, CAMRA members from three different branches and several members of Hart District Council.

Unfortunately not one of the invited local MPs, or Boris Johnson, turned up and the local MP pulled out the day before.
Howling entertained and engaged everybody in his own inimitable charismatic style. He was aided and abetted by three Boris Johnson lookalikes who helped to make the night another memorable occasion for everybody who attended.
