Despite having a number of excellent festivals, we feel the UK is still short of brewery-led festivals, organised by brewers for brewers and drinkers alike.
With this in mind, we have decided to organise our own beer festival to recognise the friends and breweries who have inspired and supported us over the last six years, to introduce the beer fans of the UK to some of the best of World Beer and to get together for a good old knees up.
Also, the beer at most festivals is too bloody strong, right? How many people want to drink 12% stout at lunchtime? Ok some of you do… but in homage to our local volume-drinking roots, our festival will celebrate the best session beers with all beer poured being 4.5% abv and under.
