Following the success of the first beer festival in 2014 we return to Friends Life (now Aviva) in May with more great beer and exciting local food selections, with the added bonus of live music.

The list will include the current CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain – Boltmaker by Timothy Taylor.

Craft beer list will be published here soon
