Beers and Ciders

We have searched for the best beers & ciders for you to enjoy at the festival.  This involves speaking to as many regulars and CAMRA members  as possible to get suggestions.  We try to put together a mix of local favourites, new releases and unusual beers as well as mix the type / colour / flavour as much as we can so hopefully there will be something for everyone.


This year we are going for:
