Over the next month we will post a sneak preview of our list, to give you an idea of what to expect.
But for now here is a list of some of the breweries we have sourced from:

Preparation Update!

We have been busy busy busy in preparation for the Beer Festival! This week we took delivery of our Bar Cart for the Prosecco Bar. It is now waiting to be painted and dressed in time for the big day. Adrian has been busy selecting our cask ales with Irvings Brewery and there will be a sneak peak at what will be available as soon as the list has been finalised. We have casks coming in from the lovely people at Upham Brewery and Botley Brewery and our Cider order with Lilley's has been put in.

A massive shout out and Thank You to Upham Brewery who have kindly offered to lend us their regional manager to tap all of our casks in the run up to the Saturday and we are all excited to learn a thing or two about the finer details of this process!
