Stevenage’s second beer festival was a huge hit as punters nearly drank the event dry!
According to Camra 99 per cent of the 78 quality ales on offer to thirsty punters was imbibed, along with the majority of the draft foreign beers on offer – making it the biggest and best event yet.
Among the 78 quality ales on offer were some splendid beers – with equally splendid names including Crispy Aromatic Duck, The Devil Made Me Brew it, Pommie’s Revenge. All Wheat, A Real Treat, Rat Hot Chilli Pepper, Triple Chocolholic, Curse of the Ryeclops and Don’t Worry Bee Heavy.
Organiser Jon Kirby told the Comet: “We are grateful for Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre for hosting us again as well as the comet for all their support.
“Special thanks goes to all our Camra volunteers who once again gave up their valuable time to help us organise the festival to serve punters outstanding beer and cider.”
