BEER FESTIVAL SCHEDULE 2016

Sorry folks - I won't be attending the forthcoming St Albans Beer/Cider Festival due to some health problems.

My apologies to my regular St Albans customers and friends and much appreciation to my faithful friendly customers and to the CAMRA staff for having my stall at St Albans for nearly 20 years - it has always been a pleasure to be there.

Probably my future beer festival attendance will be limited to not too far away venues - such as:

Manchester Beer & Cider Festival 18-21 January 2017 at Manchester  Central (ex G-Mex) .

PAYMENT by PayPal

Since 1 April 2014 we have added the popular PayPal system to our Shipping Cart on the website. This is an alternative to using your credit/debit cards if you prefer.

If it is necessary for the purchase order price to be lowered or raised (eg if an item is found to be out of stock, or if the shipping charge is too high or too low), then refunds  can be easily made to customer's credit / debit cards or PayPal account.

On the other hand if it is necessary for the order price to be increased then, with customer agreement the amount to be debited against customer Credit/Debit Card will be amended. 

However if customer has chosen PayPal for payment and a price increase is necessary then the original order will have to be cancelled & refunded,  as it is not possible to increase the sum on a PayPal order once it has been placed. In this situation the order price will be refunded to customers PayPal account, and a new order will have to be created for the required increased price.

Please Note - with PayPal it is not possible for an ordered item to be sent to an address other than your PayPal account address. So if for example you want to send a gift to another person's address then use Debit or Credit Card for payment which has this facility to send an item to an address other than your own. 

SHIPPING & P OSTAGE

  • UK POSTAGE:,
  • We are now using the Hermes Parcel Service for large posters (posters with length > 45cm) which includes the Heritage Pub Crawl posters, large Pub Stops posters and the French 50x70cm size.
  • This means that the normal 1st Class postage option is not available for the above 'large' posters as Hermes only operate one type of service.
  •  SHIPPING charges for  PURCHASES of 2 or more POSTERS:
  • If you wish to purchase 2 or more of the same poster then the Shipping charge for the 2nd poster will be annulled off-line.                                          Similarly for multi-item purchases we will reduce (off-line) the actual Shipping cost to equate to the actual P&P costs.
  • Note that the Shipping Charge shown on your order is calculated as the  sum of the individual poster shipping charges - this will then be amended to equate to the actual P&P cost when your order is received.
  • Note that the displayed Shipping charge (for 2 or more posters) will still show as the sum of each shipping charge - the refund to achieve the required Shipping cost is done off-line - it is NOT shown on the website....but the refund will still be actioned on your payment. 

NORMAL POSTAGE SERVICE

  • Please remember that our normal postal service is Royal Mail 2nd Class service other than for larger posters (> 45cm width) which are sent by Hermes.
  • and the Shipping charges shown on your order form are based on 2nd Class postage costs. [Except for larger width posters where we use Hermes].
  • Note that for larger posters width > 45cm and < 61cm going by Royal Mail Medium Parcel service the postage cost is £4.89 for 2nd class (2015 prices).
  • You can certainly opt for 1st Class postage if you wish but there will be an extra cost for 1st Class postage applicable to your package size/weight.
  • We will advise you of the increase necessary for 1st class postage and we will need to have your acceptance of the extra cost before we can authorise the debit against your Credit/Debit Card.
  •  the extra cost for 1st class postage ranges between +21p for the lowest Large Letter size to +50p for the 1kg Small Parcel and + £2.65 for 2kg Small Parcel.
  • NOTE that if you are paying by PayPal there is unfortunately no option to choose 1st postage.
  • SHIPPING CHARGE - POSTERS, POSTCARDS & GREETING CARDS : The Shipping charge shown is the sum of each Shipping charge for each single item (rather than a shipping cost for the total weight/size of all the items on an order).
  • The Shipping figure shown on your Order may be higher than the actual shipping cost and in  these circumstances the Shipping cost charged will be reduced to equate to the true cost of shippping.
