HBF 2006

Harbury Beer Festival 2006

Saint or Sinners

  • Friday 1st September 2006: 5.30pm-11pm
  • Saturday 2nd September 2006: 11.30am-4pm, 6pm-11pm

The theme was ecclesiastical – beer or brewery names had connections to the church. In addition we tried to have at least one beer from each active brewery in Warwickshire.

There was a bottle stall with beers, ciders and perries and as usual, food and soft drinks were available at all sessions. Free soft drinks were available for nominated car drivers – next year may see the introduction of coffee!.

The Harbury Beer Festival is not CAMRA’s smallest, but it is probably one of the most friendly. The venue does have a limited capacity, so to help maintain the unique atmosphere and comply with health and safety guidelines we have to strictly limit attendance.

Beer of the Festival

  • 1st Full Mash – Holy Smoke
  • 2nd Shakespeares – Tumble Down
  • Joint 3rd Slaughterhouse – Anthony Abbots Temptation
  • Joint 3rd Oakham – Bishops Farewell
