Tel: 01473 225501 When: Saturday 8th October 2015, midday until 11pm
JUNKALOO (incorporating The World Pickled Egg Championship) is an internationally recognised event, and is part of the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival as a Fringe Event – a renowned celebration of The Great British Pub & a showcase for the wealth of fantastic food & food producers we have on our doorstep here in Suffolk.
Spreading into the landscaped grounds (the carpark) and kicking off from midday we’ll have guest Aspall cyders on the bar, an amazing Animal Room with some cute stuff and some not-particularly-cute-but-will-either-cure-or-exacerbate-your-phobia stuff. Also some fab Suffolk food producers such as A-Lot-A-Choc, Keen’s Ketchups, Mr Bees, the Suffolk Pate Company, Hundred River Ice Cream & P.A. Mobbs Guineafowl & Turkey. We may even roll out some apple bobbing for the kids & The Tap will be roasting a lamb over their Argentinian asado gubbins, ready to go from midday as well as homemade crisps & crackling (to go with the pickled eggs of course) & the launch of the soon-to-be-legendary Ipswich Egg (aka The Aspall Egg)…..
It’s also one of the best chances you’ll get to see that fabulously rare animal – Morrismen!!
Danegeld & Pretty Grim, two of the finest sides in the country will be dancing their clogs off from 1:30pm.
The Fancy-Dress-Pets contest (aka Pimp-Up-Your-Pet-Albeit-Responsibly-With-All-Due-Care-For-Their-Welfare-And-Dignity Contest will be on at 3pm……….
There will be live acoustic music in the afternoon with The Normans followed by live (louder) music in the pub on The Garden Room Stage from 7pm featuring Benjamin Yellowitz, Barny Holmes and surprise guests.
Everyone can enjoy a mouth-watering array of award winning street food celebrating the fab English pub snack, fabulous drinks with beers by local and not-so-local breweries and cyder from Aspall who will also be bringing their mulled cyder to keep us warm if the British weather isn’t kind to us!
The World Pickled Egg championship is in its fifth year, is the brainchild of Brewery Tap owner Mike Keen & is sponsored by the very lovely Aspall Vinegar. Entry is open to anyone - simply make sure your eggs arrive in a ready-to-judge condition at the Brewery Tap by midday on Saturday 10 October. The pickled eggs will be judged by 4 guest judges who will give an overall mark of ‘general egg mojo’ against a stringent set of criteria. The winner will receive their very own Egg Trophy (an actual carved ostrich egg!) and a magical prize.
Judging for the WPEC will be from 6pm with the winner announced at 7pm- everyone will get a chance to sample the entries and also The Tap’s own Pickled Ostrich Egg.
The mighty Wayne Bavin from the radio station Town 102 says: “Bloody hell, do I have to do this again?!”
Aldeburgh Food Festival Organiser Festival organiser Jess Brown says:
“We’re thrilled that the WPEC is thriving in its spiritual home at The Tap. It’s fantastic to see Junkaloo & The World Pickled Egg Championship develop into a renowned annual food event shamelessly riding on the coattails of the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Fest. It’s a great example of the Suffolk can-do attitude - events like these are what the festival is all about, a real celebration of Suffolk, our amazing food and drink and the people that produce it. The Festival and Fringe is getting bigger and better every year thanks to the support from local businesses. “

It is no secret that beer is the drink of choice for any curry fan and has been associated with Indian cuisine in the UK since first being served at Veeraswamy in Piccadilly in 1927. However, most of the so-called ‘Indian’ beer sold in the UK is actually being brewed in Europe, so to have a new beer, direct from India, is more than welcome.
Goa Premium Beer at last offers curry fans a drink to go with their spicy offering. It is a true Indian brew imported all the way from India, unlike the other main brands.
The 4.8 ABV beer comes in 340ml & 650ml bottles as well as a 500ml can and is distributed by Viiking Ventures UK Ltd. Apart from the fact that Goa Beer is actually brewed in…. well, Goa, the beer's other great advantage is that it is gluten free, based on malt and maize. The malt taste comes through clearly when enjoyed alongside a spicy curry and as a stand-alone drink, is somewhat reminiscent of Blue Moon from America.
Legend has it that in the year 1530, the weather lured India’s Portuguese colonists to move their capital to Goa. Hardly a surprise, considering the tropical weather it’s been blessed with. The humidity and conditions here work their alchemy on the water, to endow it with that special something. And it’s this very water that gives Goa Beer its crisp, refreshing flavour, that’s so distinctly Goa.
The Viiking Group has many interests across various sectors such as Hospitality, Media and Entertainment, Health and Fitness, Realty, FMCG products and Aviation. The Viiking Group acquired Goa’s highly popular King’s Pilsner Beer formerly owned by Impala Distillery and Brewery Ltd. King’s Black Label Premium Pilsner Beer, as it was formerly known, has enjoyed the reputation of having superior taste and refreshingly different packaging and positioning. The beer was one of the first Pilsner beers manufactured in India.
As per this acquisition, Impala and Viiking Ventures formed a partnership which is valid for 20 years, wherein the beer will be manufactured and bottled by Impala exclusively and all production costs and marketing responsibilities will be handled by Viiking Ventures.
Mr. Sachiin Joshi, Chairman – Viiking Ventures said, “The unique taste comes from the waters of Goa used in production, making it the preferred choice for the beer-drinking population. People from around the world have had it in Goa and are eagerly awaiting its global availability. The product has immense potential, even overseas.”
A good curry deserves a good Indian beer and Goa Beer is now available throughout the UK. For further information, call 0203 752 6737.
The 19th National Curry Week will take place from 18-24 October 2016 supported by Asda, Bhai Cider and Kingfisher Premium Lager Beer.
