The Northampton County Beer Festival takes place at Delapre in Northampton, from tomorrow (Thursday) until Saturday.
For the first time Delapre will feature all the commercial drink producers in this county, 25 brewers from Brian Mujati’s one man home brewing business at one end to Carlsberg at the other, both making their first appearance at the festival.
In between there will be the full range of brewing fermenting and distilling that can be found in Northamptonshire, 25 brewers, five cider producers and gin distillers and some vineyards.
For the first time those attending will be able to take away bottled beers and ciders that they have enjoyed at the festival
And for the first time in three years the local branch of CAMRA is involved, the organisation that founded the event.
There will be the usual and unusual festival food section and a great selection or local acts including the Northampton Concert Brass band and the Moulton Morris Men.
