This weekend sees two of the regions better CAMRA beer festivals, at Hull and Sheffield.
The Hull festival starts on Thursday, (12.00-1700,1700-2300), Friday (1200-1600,and ticket only at 1700) and Saturday (12.00-20.00), at the Mortimer Suite at Hull City Hall. The list looks a good one, showcasing two new local breweries, Wellington and Big River. There are plenty of other beers to whet the appetite of the ticker and plenty of ciders, no doubt ordered under the knowing eye of 'Bloke from Hull'. (List is on our Facebook page.)
The Sheffield festival again runs Thursday through till Saturday but 1200 till 2300 each day, with admission free at all but the Friday evening session for CAMRA members. The festival has a new home, no longer in a wet field near a cemetry but rather at Ponds Forge, on Sheaf Street just up the road from the station. I have yet to see the list for the festival but 200 plus beers are promised.
