Free beer, street food, live music and a festival vibe were on the menu at the inaugural Open Brewery Night hosted by Bury St Edmunds-based brewer Greene King.

But it was an impromptu marriage proposal that stole the show.

For Rob Davies threw caution to the wind and got down on one knee to propose to his delighted girlfriend Lucy Partridge.

He 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’!”

They are getting married at The Grange Hotel, in Thurston, in September.

The event was attended by hundreds of people who flocked to the brewery’s tap garden on the eve of Beer Day Britain.

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!”
