Belfast and London get launched

Geoff Martin of the RMT launches the evening in LondonBrigadista finally got a London launch on the weekend and Belfast had itself a launch too. Over one hundred people turned up in Walthamstow on Friday night for an evening of song and solidarity. By the time the launch started half a keg of our ale had already been demolished by thirsty and curious locals and on a warm night our ale was a welcome accompliment to wood fired pizzas and folk and punk music.

Jim Jump, the secretary of the International Brigade Memorial Trust gave a toast to the beer and the International Brigades as did RMT Assistant General Secretary Steve Hedley who spoke about the contribution made by members of the NUR and NUS unions in fighting fascism and how those sacrificies and that commitment is being continued by the RMT.

Grace Petrie finished the night off with a brilliant set puncuated with her brilliant wit and observations helped along (by her own admission) by having one of two pints of Brigadista herself.

In Belfast, both the Sunflower and John Hewitt pubs opted for the bottled version of our ale. And if you ever get served by a man with a finer face of hair anywhere in the world, we'd be very impressed!
