There are two beer festivals on the local horizon in the next month, and both are promising to be very different.
The Star at Folly Hall will be opening the doors to its Spring Beer Festival on the 16th March at 5pm. The festival promises its usual 46 beers but will be held inside the pub rather than the marquee.Further details will follow when available.
The same weekend sees The Sportsman on St Johns Rd hosting an Irish themed beer festival. This will be predominantly a keg festival with an additional bar at the rear of the pub so hopefully around 15 beers will be on offer here. Many will be unknown in the area and from new breweries. It is hoped that thirds will be available here to allow us to sample as many as possible.
Additionally there is the Wetherspoons festival running throughout the later part of the month with 50 beers promised across the festival time.
Get out there and get sampling.
