3.  Kingswear Beer Festival 30 March to 1st April 2007

Kingswear is holding it's second Beer Festival over the weekend 30th March to 1st April at The Royal Dart Hotel in Kingswear. Mark Kimber (owner of The Royal Dart Hotel) said, “We have twice as many real ales this year compared to the first successful beer festival held last year. All of the beers are from breweries in the South Devon area because we want to give people the opportunity to sample our local beers.”

This year there are going to be at least 12 local real ales to sample from breweries such as O’Hanlons (Exeter), Warrior (Exeter), Otter (Ottery St Mary), Teignworthy (Newton Abbot), Summerskills (Plymouth) and South Hams Brewery (Torcross).

Nigel Jewers from South Hams Brewery said, “South Hams Brewery is really pleased to have been involved in organizing the event again this year. We have entered three beers from our range of award winning ales into the festival. It is excellent to see the Kingswear Beer Festival expanding and growing and we wish Mark and the team at The Royal Dart all the best for the festival.”

The beer festival runs from 11am to 11pm on Friday and Saturday and 11am to 10.30pm on Sunday. For more information, telephone The Royal Dart Hotel on 01803 752213.

Dave Cawley owner of Dartmouth dot TV said "of the 12+ real beers, it is the Wild Blonde that I shall be trying!"  Wild Blonde brewed by South Hams Brewery at Torcross has an  ABV 4.4% and is a pale, dry hoppy beer with just a hint of sweetness.

4.    Memories of Dartmouth

Is there something strangely missing from this view from Yorke Road?  We found this postcard in the pannier market at Tavistock last week.

5.     Organic burgers by the beach

The UK’s leading environmentally friendly beach café and shop operator, the Venus Company, has announced new trading links with fellow award winning organic suppliers in South Devon.

Occombe Farm, the organic farm and education centre at Preston, near Paignton is to supply organic floured baps and beef from its in-house bakery and traditional butchery made to an agreed Venus specification. The Venus Company is a great champion of sourcing local food and drink products and in 2007, is using over 30 local producers from Devon and Cornwall.  So it's time to visit Blackpool sands again?

6.     Life outside Dartmouth

More and more young and attractive Japanese girls live alone nowadays.  Sega Toys found a solution to help these poor girls fight their loneliness, with a new chick robot that goes “peep peep” once in a while.  You can take it in your arms while screaming the Japanese war cry Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!

Japanese marketing suggests : "This adorable chick which will never grow up!
When you stroke its head it joyfully cries “pipitsu”  If u pick it up it will flap its wings."  You heard it first on Dartmouth dot TV!
