Cambridge Beer Festival Winter 2019 Beer List

This list is what’s been ordered for the festival. However, changes can occur even after the festival has opened. We’ll endeavour to keep this as up to date as we can, including updating the status of each beer.

  • Arbor Ales Lawrence Hill, Bristol est. 2007 Breakfast Stout 7.4% A lot of thought has gone into this beer – we've been working on the recipe for well over a year! So, it started out as an Imperial Stout. How about a few oats? How about a hell of a lot of oats?! Some smoked malt maybe – just a little. All good so far. A few specialty German grains should round off the mash quite nicely. Then onto the boil. With our very own coffee roaster here in Bristol, it seemed a shame not to use them. We played around with a few samples from Brian Wogan Coffee and finally settled on some freshly roasted Brazilian Santos beans. Awesome coffee! Just needed something a bit chocolaty to finish it off. How about some chocolate? How about some organic raw cacao nibs?! Job done. Just a long slow fermentation and conditioning period and the result is outstanding.
