Pub-goers will be able to enjoy a selection of up to 30 beers from independent British craft brewers during a 12 day festival at 2 Wetherspoon pubs in the area.
The festival is taking place at S. Fowlers & Co. in Union Street, Ryde and The Man in the Moon in St James Street, Newport from Wednesday 10th October to Sunday 21st October inclusive.
Each of the brewers is a member of SIBA – the organisation that promotes small independent brewers and their beers.
Among the beers on offer are those brewed exclusively for the festival as well as award-winners. The beers include Blueberry Classic Bitter (Coach House); Jurassic Dark (Dorset); Jemima’s Pitchfork (Glamorgan); Freddy Brewger (Robinsons); Hope & Glory (Brentwood); Hop Twister (Salopian); Big Job (St Austell) and Wheel of Fortune (Castle Rock).
In addition the pubs will serve 5 UK produced ciders. The ciders include Toffee Apple (Mr Whitehead’s), Legbender (Rich’s) and Premium Perry (Broadoak).
All beers and ciders are priced at £2.15 a pint.
Customers will be able to sample any 3 of the real ales or ciders in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.
Fowlers & Co. manager, Neil Longley, said:
“The festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful range of beers from independent British craft brewers.
“It will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of the beers that they brew, many of which have not been served in the pub before.
“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that my customers will enjoy themselves.”
Tasting notes of all of the beers and ciders will be available in the pubs.
