Leicester Beer Festival

March 12, 2010

curryLeicester’  beer festival is a sure harbinger of Spring. The 2010 event is on now on until Saturday evening at its usual venue, the Charotar Patidar Samaj just behind St Margaret’s Church. I always find it a heartwarming event – people brought together in a spirit of adventure bound by a fondness for smallscale production of a high quality product. There’s over 230 beers, ciders and perries available here in a huge variety of styles.  And OK, style may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a real ale festival, but if you’ve not been before I’d say give it a go, because it’s a friendly, welcoming environment.  Perhaps best to be out of their well before late Saturday evening though. Good curries and great  pork pies also on offer. Details here: Beer Festival
