Brum Beer Festival for all real ale lovers
Real ales and cider enthusiasts can start celebrating because the biggest beer festival from the region is about to take over Birmingham. From 25-27 October, the Brum Beer Fest is going to take place at The Second City Suite, a nice venue tacked away in the city centre.
The reputation and popularity of the Birmingham Beer Festival is well known between brewers and CAMRA members. In 2012, more than 220 real ales; 60 real ciders and perries (cider made from pears); foreigner beers provided by Stirchley Wines and Spirits and other sort of entertainment events such as beer testing workshop and live music are scheduled to the programme too.
There are two types of ticket available: the group tickets, available for group of five or more people to attend the festival any time and also the early bird ones valid for those who will attend one (or more) days of the event before 1pm.
The third edition of Birmingham Beer Festival is about to take over and as the biggest event of its kind in the West Midlands, they estimate to beat the record of 4.854 people attendances in 2011. Be part of it!
