Gwyl Fair Y Canhwyllau/Exit the Dragon - Welsh Festival
Saturday February 2nd 5pm
The Ship Inn is excited to announce our first Gwyl Fair y Canhwyllau!
Wait...What the heck is that? Well first off it's Welsh...which you may have guessed...and it basically translates to Mary's Festival of the Candles and falls in the same ballpark as Candlemas which evolved from Imbolc in the pagan Celtic tradition.
It represents the halfway point of winter...and the story goes that it was customary for people to light two candles and place them on a table. Each family member would then take a drink of beer out of a horned goblet (we definitely have to find one). Afterwards they would throw the vessel over their head, and if it fell in an upright position, the person who threw it would live to reach a very old age...if it fell bottom up? Well we'll leave that to the imagination...
So we're going to celebrate with ale in horned goblets...we're going to light candles all over the place...we're going to listen to authentic live Welsh songs...we're going to eat authentic Welsh food...and most importantly we're going to launch the newest beer in our Hidden Nation Brewing Line..."Exit the Dragon"...a Welsh Ale that will honor the Red Dragon of Wales...and tell the tale of the Dragon that adorns the Welsh flag and represents the proud culture of Wales!
Hope to have you out for this unique occasion!!!
