There’s a grand total of 193 beers and ciders at this year’s Continental Beer Festival.


Ale lovers can peruse an enormous menu as the 17th festival returns to the South Meadow Lane pub.

The festival site has expanded rapidly during the past few years, with a ‘tipple tent’ on the car park including a gin and prosecco bar.

The Ferret is providing BBQ food and the main beer barn is back in action.

Tokens will be in operation with £1.60 for a half pint of ale and £1.80 for a half pint of cider.

The beer barn indoors will host 57 ales and 28 ciders – many of those being fruit ciders.

Food wise you’re looking at £5 for a cheesburger, £4 for veg chilli and nachos and £5 for a pulled pork roll.

Full beer list and tasting notes can be found on the Continental website.

The beer festival runs from Thursday 11 May to Sunday 14 May. It is now ticked and tickets can be bought in advance on Skiddle.

Opening times are 5pm to 12midnight on Thursday, 12pm to 12.30am on Friday, the same on Saturday and 12pm to 8pm on Sunday. Sunday is free entry.
