Captain Croppie

As our posts this year may indicate, this hasn’t been the best of crop circle seasons. The circles themselves are down in numbers, some of what we’ve seen in the fields is shoddy at best, everybody hates everybody else, and the farmers are out with their combines at first sniff of some stomped crop. Some of these problems – particularly the cutting of circles – have been a long time coming, and we don’t intend to go into the reasons here. Croppie Ale think they have the solution, and a frankly naive one (and – considering the role some of the Barge’s punters have played in the current situation – an insulting one) it is, too; let’s hope they mean it as a joke. It’s gonna take more than a pint to sort things out. At least it’s a tasty enough beverage with which to drown out the season’s sorrows…



The Alien Crop Circle Challenge

In response to the Crop Circle Challenge, The Barge Inn have issued a cheeky challenge of their own. The requirement? Recreate the August 2001  Milk Hill ‘galaxy’ crop circle. The prize? 100,0000 pints of Croppie Ale. The conditions? Only aliens are allowed to enter. Full details here; screen captures below.
