Festival specials

A beer festival is a great opportunity to try beers you wouldn’t normally get to drink. Particularly if this is the first time a beer has been brewed.

Each year some breweries go the extra mile and create a beer especially for us. These are usually connected in some way to the festival’s theme. This year we’re celebrating the 350th anniversary of Isaac Newton’s construction of the first reflecting telescope.

Here are this year’s festival specials. You’re unlikely to find them anywhere else!
