The Great Sally Alley Quiz

Remember all those terrible Zoom quizzes you had to do during lockdown? What were they all about?!? No dazzling selection of cask ales to lubricate the neurons, no chip butty at the end and a wonky internet connection that made it ten times longer than it should have been and more like a game of musical statues than a battle of the braincells. Paxman would have turned in his grave, if he wasn’t still alive.

Anyway, the good news is, the Sally Alley Quiz is back, replete with chip butties and beer!

Every second Thursday of every month we’ll invite a different charity to set the questions, act as quizmaster and trouser all the entry fees. There will be six rounds of different topics chosen by the charity, including one specific to their own cause. They ask you questions, you try and answer them. The team with the most correct answers wins beer! We’re allowing teams of up to six people and entry fee is £4 per person (please bring cash for this). Register your team for 7.45pm and the great quizzing commences at 8pm. Let’s get quizzical!

To kick things off, the Sally will be hosting the very first quiz so you can expect a round on your favourite public house. We are looking for other hosts to join the fun so please get in touch if you would like to play quizmaster!

Live Music – The Holly Carter Blues Collective

Holly has wowed the Sally a few times now with her own brand of folk-blues fingerpicking musical magic. Each time she’s been so good we just had to book her up again. In order to save ourselves a lot of admin and Holly a lot of pestering, we’ve now just agreed to have Holly play here for you every first Thursday in the month. Each time however Holly will be joined by different members of her ‘blues collective’ to bring you an evening of the finest New Orleans blues, swing and Americana with a splash of country thrown in for good measure. Holly will host and curate a different ensemble of artists each month to give a fresh musical flavour as they take you on a journey through the finest beer-supping, hand-clapping, toe-tapping blues that neither Ham nor Berkeley has ever seen the likes of before! This month Holly is joined by Chris Webb, a supremely talented Bristol-based songwriter, who blend of folkey melodies plus interesting chords with whimsical lyrics on top. The two will be performing a carefully curated selection of pieces from their respective solo catalogues, plus a handful of cherry-picked Americana and folk-blues classics. Music starts at 7.30pm.

Wiper and True Tap Takeover!

We’re very excited to be hosting the guys and gals from Bristol-based brewing superstars Wiper and True down to the Sally for a collaboration brew with our very own Tiley’s Brewery. We’ll tell you more about the beer we’re brewing a bit later, but more importantly, to make them feel at home, and of course to give you guys the chance to experience a full Wiper line-up, we’re hosting our first ever W&T Tap Takeover right here at the Sally! We’ll of course have some of the usual favourites such as Kaleidoscope and Milk Shake on offer but we’ll also be getting in full range of beer styles from table beers, pale ale, session sours and lagers to demonstrate their incredible versatility and brewing prowess. The beers will be on the bar from 5pm and as it’s bonfire night, we might even have a couple of sparklers to share. It’s going to be fun and delicious – a dream combo!

Live Music – Jakey Graupner

A one man musical maelstrom, a multi-instrumentalist maestro, a mega-talented mellifluous marvel of monolithic proportions. These are just some of the phrases that have never been used to describe Jakey Graupner before. Not because they aren’t true, but because phrases like that are just too cumbersome and unwieldy to use in everyday discourse. Jakey Graupner is an exceptionally talented multi-instrumentalist and singer who regularly plays guitar, banjo or mandolin in some of our favourite bands including the brilliant Cat Amongst The Pigeons. A musical genius pitched somewhere between Beethoven and Bill Bailey, he played an impromptu set for us back in the summer and it was one of the most fun evenings we have ever had. With an incredible breadth of musical knowledge and versatility you can expect singalong covers ranging from Van Halen to Van Morrison, from the Beatles to the Bangles, from the Proclaimers to the Pretenders and from R.E.M. to REO Speedwagon. In short, he can basically play anything and you will love it! Music starts at 7.30pm, make sure you’re there!

We have only 23 tickets available so make sure you don’t miss out. Grab your tickets either online here (includes a booking fee) or from behind the bar.
