This beer festivals is brilliant, especially when the sun shines. They have been doing these festivals twice a year since 2007. Their Fans reckon they are just about the best beer events around.They choose their breweries and let them show 3 or 4, sometimes more of their beers. It’s not about cramming in as many different beers as possible. It’s about showcasing the breweries, and getting the brewers along. It’s all about British craft brewing… what’s new, who’s new, what’s stood the test of time, but most of all… what’s good. It’s mostly cask. But there’s a fair amount of keg too.The festival take’s over the whole brewery. They have plenty of cellars and cold room, so all the beer is properly cold and served from at least 3 bars. It’s a family affair… kids, dogs, babes in arms, great grandmas, weird brewers all welcome. Food all day, live music and great beer.
