Country’s biggest beer festival returns to Peterborough
THE biggest beer festival in the country returns to Peterborough on Tuesday August 24.
The annual Peterborough Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) Beer Festival, in it’s 33rd year, attracts around 35,000 visitors and offers more than 400 draught real ales.
The five-day event on the River Embankment, Bishops Road, is held in massive marquees and has a new layout this year to keep customers dry in adverse weather.
Harry Morten, Branch Secretary, said: “Customers only need to go outside for food, a cigarette and the loos. Now we have covered it all over we should be guaranteed a sunny festival without a spot of rain.”
In addition to the real ale customers will find a wide selection of traditional ciders and perries, foreign bottled beers, fruit wines, foods, brewing memorabilia, pub games and live music at the event.
