Highlights from 2014
WE HAD OVER ONE THOUSAND CRAFT BEERS!
Yes - the beer and cider festival that offers the world’s biggest selection of draught cask conditioned beers, and over 200 real ciders and perries is CLOSED having been brighter and bigger than ever!
The festival was again held in the wonderful grounds of Nottingham Castle right in the city centre and as in previous years was not be all-ticket. A full programme of entertainment was again offered from Wednesday evening to Saturday, down on the bandstand.
All beers and ciders that were ready were on sale, except the limited number that were being judged in the SIBA competition the next day, which meant around 650 different cask beers were available to try.
The East Midlands CAMRA Regional Cider Competition was held during the Wednesday evening.
