Harbury Beer Festival 2014

Friday 29th August 2014
5.30pm - 11.30pm
Saturday 30th August 2014
11.30am - 4.00pm
6.00pm - 11.30pm

Harbury Beer Festival takes place on the Friday and Saturday following the August bank holiday each year.

The dates published in the January 2014 edition of our Branch Magazine were incorrect.

Beers from all over the country were drawn together to demonstrate that women can brew beer just as well as the men - some might say better than them - but they have had more practice as they did all the brewing during medieval times when the men were out working the fields.

Alongside these, the usual collection of Warwickshire breweries were featured.

To mark the Heart of Warwickshire branch's 40th year, we asked local breweries to produce a special anniversary ale and ran a competition to judge the best in advance of the start of the festival.
