Impromptu proposal at Greene King event
The first open brewery night at Greene King saw a twist of events when a guest proposed to his girlfriend.
The inaugural Greene King open brewery night boasted free beer, delicious local street food, live music and a festival vibe but it was the impromptu marriage proposal that really stole the show.
Rob Davies got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Lucy Partridge who both live in Bury. Greene King have offered to provide the beer for Rob and Lucy’s wedding reception.
Rob, 37, said: “I’d been thinking about proposing and had the ring on me but hadn’t decided where or when to ask her. Lucy had been away all week with work and the atmosphere at the open brewery night was just perfect.
“It was a lovely sunny evening, the beer was flowing and the music just set the scene. I turned and looked at her and thought, ‘she’s the one!’”
Alongside a selection of Greene King’s modern craft beers, guests were treated to beer cocktails, a choice of street food from local suppliers and live music from Felix Simpson, who is from Diss.
Speaking at the event, Dom South, marketing director said: “Rob’s proposal was the icing on the cake for our first open brewery night. I’m not sure we will top that again but it was such a successful evening we have plans for the next one in September.
“We couldn’t be happier for Rob and Lucy and have offered them the beer on us for their wedding reception.”
Greene King described the open brewery night as an opportunity to treat local customers to a beer from one of their well known brands such as Greene King IPA and Abbot Ale.
Mr South said: “By hosting the evenings we can showcase some of these fantastic beers as well as give visitors the chance to chat to our brewers.”
