A big local event, the Derby Winter Ales Festival is coming up running from Wednesday 20th February to Saturday 23rd February at The Roundhouse.There have been some changes since, the 12th Derby CAMRA Winter Beer Festival. See below for highlights and more information:
- 2 attached marquees this year, one for the entrance area where glasses and admission have combined to assist customers entering the Festival in a speedier manner. The second marquee will be for the live bands to perform in each evening – which frees up permanent seating in The Carriage Room.
- 2 Brewery Bars! Derventio Brewery will be in the Main Hall with their selection of ales and the brand new Shiny Brewery will be in The Carriage Room.
- Over 300 amazing real ales, a handpicked crop of real ciders and perries, a selection of Continental beers from over 10 Countries plus some Mead (honey wine). This year the festival will showcase ales which are new, innovative, rare, winners and old favorites from the East Midlands and all four points of the compass.
- Food wise there is a great selection of freshly cooked hot & cold food from The Roundhouse Catering Team plus the following stalls: Mr Morgan & Sons Cheese, Merry Berry Chocolates and Pipers Crisps.
