CAMRA Great British Beer Festival Winter

The CAMRA Great British Beer Festival Winter hit the West Midlands last week. The festival was held in The New Bingley Hall, and housed over 400 beers with alternatives such as cider, spirits and even mead!

The festival is run by Mark Parkes and his team of volunteers, who raised money for charity Love Brum through the event. On top of that was a cracking international bottle stand and a whole host of food vendors from Birmingham’s legendary Digbeth Dining Club!

For the avid homebrewers, there was a learning, discovery and homebrew stand where festival-goers could chat with and ask advice from experienced brewers.

As always, the range of cask was vast with brewers from far and wide demonstrating their best brews. This included award-winning brews like King Korvak’s Saga, an awesome porter from Fownes on the Champion Winter Beer Competition bar; perfect for beer drinkers who enjoy the darker side of things. 😈

Thornbridge that has recently opened its new bar, The Colmore in Birmingham City Centre, even brought an uber-cool VW camper which we admired while sipping its Pale Ale Astryd on cask. Boss’ Loose Nut brown ale also went down a treat at the Jeweller’s Bar.

Listening to some epic tunes amongst the bustling atmosphere, we found ourselves at one of our highlights, the Defiant’ KeyKeg bar which held the likes of Fixed Wheels ‘Through and Off’ and Gorgeous Brewery’s now-renowned CPD Pale Ale… More of that next year, please!

Hey, I’m Tim! I fell seriously in love with beer while travelling with my wife from the UK to the U.S back in 2013. Visiting some epic craft beer bars and beer festivals along the way, we discovered some amazing brews. This inspired me to create BeerYeti to share my passion while educating everyone on everything beer! The site was originally set up as ‘a bit of a laugh’, but this soon spiralled into something a little more serious!
