A real ale fest for all lovers of great beers
So much beer but so little time.

The Tamworth Beer Festival is returning to the Staffordshire market town this September to the delight of real ale lovers from across the region.

Now in its 22nd year, the Tamworth Beer Festival is organised by the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

Formed in 1971, CAMRA is an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, community pubs and the rights of consumers.

This year's Tamworth Beer Festival runs from Thursday 3 September to Saturday 5 September and again takes place at the Tamworth Assembly Rooms in the centre of the town.

It promises to offer thirsty beer drinkers with a selection of more than 90 cask real ales from various micro breweries, including festival specials and many new ales.

And alongside the traditional real ales there will also be a variety of ciders and perries, plus UK and foreign bottled beers.

A full list of this year's beers should be available on the local CAMRA website at the end of August.

Each daily session of the beer festival is open from 11am to 11pm, with supervised children only permitted inside until 5pm.

Unlike previous years, there will be no live music, but hot and cold food is available during every session and soft drinks will also be on hand.

To celebrate this year's Rugby World Cup taking place in England during September and October special festival polo shirts featuring a Rugby World Cup theme will be available, as well as refundable souvenir tankard glasses.

Admission for each session is 3, apart from the 5pm to 11pm session on Friday which costs 4. However members of CAMRA can get in for free at all times.

Throughout the festival organisers will be supporting local charities Simon's Heroes, which raises money for Tamworth children with life limiting illnesses, and St Giles Hospice based in Whittington, near Lichfield.

Sponsors of last year's Tamworth Beer Festival included local pubs, The Sir Robert Peel, The Market Vaults, and The Silk Kite, as well as regional breweries such as Joule's, Beowulf, Blythe, and Church End.
