The main attraction of a beer festival is, of course, the beer! There will be twelve cask ales. Some will be from local brewers and others will come from afar! To cater for all there will be two craft lagers and three ciders.
As well as the guest beers we will be providing entertainment and food for you to enjoy while sampling beers from around the country.
We will have guest beers catering for a diverse range of tastes. Here’s the list with tasting notes.
|Name||ABV %||Tasting Notes|
|Skinners Cornish Knocker||4.5%||The taste of the delicate floral hops trails citrus with a slight pine bitterness and leaves you with a mild biscuit finish.|
|Bass||4.4%||English hops and dry hopping. This ale is described as a classic ale with a malty, fruity, nutty aroma and a complex satisfying flavour|
|Vale English IPA||3.7%||A light copper English IPA that packs far more flavour than its abv would suggest. A three hop blend with dry planet malt creates a real sessionable thirst quencher.|
|Old Hooky Premium Ruby||4.6%||A subtly balanced, amber bitter, hoppy to the nose, malty on the palate – the classic session beer, eminently drinkable.|
|3.2%||A British classic crafted to our brewers special recipe makes this a nutty mild and, despite being only 3.2% abv, it is packed full of flavour|
|Bitter & Twisted||3.8%||A superbly balanced, refreshingly lively beer. It has a malty sweet aroma with a floral, fruity hoppiness.|
|Dinga Dinda||4.0%||Australian inspired pale ale full of Pacific hops for a fruit flavour packed summer beer.|
|Clutch||4.6%||Aromatic and tangy hops from the other side of the pond to give this red a fresh hit that compliments the caramel flavours of the malts.|
|Fork Handles||4.2%||A malty blonde ale with aromas of lemon and honey with a gentle spicy finish.|
|Sheep dip||3.8%||An easy-drinking amber ale with aromas of grassy hops and malt with a long bittersweet finish.|
|Black Hama||4.8%||Porter – This packs a chocolate and coffee punch with a creamy head and a liquorice undertone. Using cascade hops and a blend of malts to produce a smooth, rich and delicious traditional Baltic porter.|
|Wayland Smithy||4.4%||Fire at its heart and balanced with buckets of aromatic hops, it’s enough to give other brewers the hump.|
|Baldrick||3.4%||A very smooth and more-ish mild ale that delivers plenty of malty flavours.|
We will be rolling out the barbeque serving the usual BBQ food over the three days. There will be fresh filled rolls on offer also.
For your entertainment there will be live music on all three days.
