Beer festival weekend a big success
2:00pm Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
BEER buffs and ale enthusiasts enjoyed the twelfth annual Harwich and Dovercourt winter ale festival.
More than 50 beers were sampled at the event which kicked off on Wednesday and ran until Saturday at Kingway Hall in Dovercourt.
Organiser Richard Oxborrow saw people flock to the event and enjoy the beers, ales, ciders and perries on offer.
“Lots of people think beer festivals are a summer thing but we offer a small intimate setting where people aren’t overwhelmed by choice.
“It also means we have an opportunity to champion seasonal beers which are often darker and stronger.”
