Newark Beer & Cider Festival

Beer

Real Ale at the Newark Beer & Cider Festival

This year we will have up to 150 beers from the length and breadth of Britain, covering all styles from milds, bitters, lagers and stouts to fruit beers, wheat beers and those brewed with honey or herbs and spices.

Newark is surrounded by micro breweries and these will be well represented at The Newark Beer Festival

The Newark branch of CAMRA has always prided itself on providing as interesting a selection as possible and our cellarman, Andy Sales, leaves no stone unturned to find the tasty, the rare and the unusual.

Please note that our beer order isn’t always adhered to by the brewers who sometimes may have to make a substitution at the last minute. However, we think you’ll find it’s a good selection and well worth several hours in our marquee.

The beers tickers amongst you will want to be here for the Friday session as our newest selections, especially those from newly opened breweries, always sell out fast.

The beer list

Big thanks to Andy Sales for his work on the beer order, together with Ray Kirby and Steve Westby for their cellar work.
