The Beer List.

Due to the very nature of real ale, not all the beers will be ready to to serve at all sessions. We only have a limited amount of each beer, so when it's gone, it's gone!

Cask end cards have been colour-coded to make it easier for you to find beers of a certain hue:

Pale and golden beers have yellow cards
Mid-brown and copper beers have orange cards
Dark red and black beers have white cards

Beers shown in this colour are not currently available


This information will be updated as soon as possible when information is received but there may be a delay between beers becoming available/unavailable and changes to the page.

This information is provided as a guide to what is available on the bar. While we take every care to ensure that this information is correct, please check with the festival before making a special journey as the beer range may change.
