Rugby CAMRA 34th Beer & Cider Festival
Friday, March 2nd & Saturday, 3rd 2018

The Arnold House (Masonic Hall), Church Walk, Rugby, Warwickshire CV21 3BA (behind The Merchants)

Our beer festival this year will be at The Arnold House (Masonic Hall), behind The Merchants, Rugby on Friday 2nd and Saturday, 3rd March. Please make a note of the new dates this year.

We will have a selection of local ales on offer alongside beers from around the country and a selection of ciders and perrys with a bottled beer bar.

Our dates have changed this year to avoid the 6 Nations matches. As always hot and cold food will be available at all throughout the festival and our infamous tombola will be running with an auction of anything left on Saturday afternoon. There will be live music on Saturday evening.

The Festival will be open from 2pm -11pm on Friday and 11am-11pm Saturday

Hope you can all come along and support the best choice of beers in Warwickshire this weekend.

BIG BOG BREWERY, SPEKE, LIVERPOOL - MIRE 3.8% - A tawny coloured session ale with floral hop notes in evidence. A highly quaffable & thirst quenching ale.

BIG BOG BREWERY, SPEKE, LIVERPOOL - BAYOU 5.0% - Crafted from Extra Pale Ale & Crystal Rye malts, this beer is light in colour with a slight red hue. An intensely hoppy ale that some would describe as the ultimate Hop Heads beer from the generous use of USA Citra hops. This beer is dry hopped with USA Amirillo to further add orange, citrus & floral notes.

FUZZY DUCK, POULTON-LE-FYLDE, LANCASHIRE - WINTER WADDLE 5.0% - Deep amber seasonal winter warmer ale.

GUN BREWERY, GUN HILL, EAST SUSSEX - PARABELLUM MILK STOUT (V) 4.1% - Dark and delicious, a rich jet black milk stout made with a combination of barley, oats, wheat and roasted chocolate malts. The result is a satisfying balance of coffee, vanilla and chocolate notes and a full malt base. One to be savoured.

LACONS, GREAT YARMOUTH, NORFOLK - AFFINITY 4.8% - Full bodied with a chestnut tint, complex passion fruit and lychee tartness leaps forward, followed by a charming balance of fruit and malt.

LOCH LOMOND - SOUTHERN SUMMIT 4.0% - The palate is fresh and fruity, with hints of grapefruit and lemon lead on to a clean, light bitter finish.
