Something with a continental taste, we have Greyhound Brewery's White Bird Witte Bier. They describe their 5.1% nod to the Belgians as a cloudy light straw beer in the Belgian style, with hints of spice and bitter orange. A refreshing beer for summer days.
This is the first time Greyhound have had any of their beers at the Portchester Beer Festival so we cant wait to try them all out!

Making it's festival debut this year we have the award winning GFB from Hopback Brewery.
Taken from the brewery website they describe their best loved ale:
GFB, our golden best and our founder John Gilbert’s First Brew over 30 years ago. A hoppy aroma and packed full of the best East Kent Golding hops to give a light clean finish. Tasted to destruction by our brewers!
We definitely can not wait to try this one!

Back by popular demand this year is Irving & Co Brewers Captain B.
This 5.3% spiced rum ale sold out at last years festival so be sure to get in there quickly this year if you want to sample one of Irving's best known brews.
The festival special ale started out as a joke and is a strong, sweet and spicy taste of the Caribbean. With flavours of cinnamon and vanilla with dark sugar notes, its a sure one to hit the spot!

It is that time of the year again when we give you lovely followers a sneaky peek at some of our suppliers for the Beer Festival. This year we have sourced locally and below are some of the breweries making their Portchester Beer Festival debut this year!
Hopback Brewery was started in 1986 from the cellar of The Wyndham Arms pub in Salisbury, by John Gilbert who was a pioneer of the new wave of microbrewers that appeared in the early 1980s. They have since acquired 2 more pubs and in 1996 won at the Brewing Industry International Awards for the session beer G.F.B. (Gilbert’s First Brew), claiming Gold Medal both in its class and the overall Championship, beating 232 other cask beers!
