Beer-lovers set for 19-day Wyre Forest festival

BEER enthusiasts will be able to enjoy up to 35 real ales, including 10 from overseas, during a 19-day festival at three pubs in Wyre Forest.

The overseas beers on offer at Ye Olde Crown Inn in Bridge Street, Stourport, the Penny Black in Bull Ring, Kidderminster and George Hotel in Load Street, Bewdley, have been sourced from brewers in Japan, Lithuania, Holland, Australia, Canada, Italy, United States and Belgium.

The festival will also feature beers from across the UK, including speciality beers, as well as beers brewed exclusively for the pubs.

It will run from Wednesday, October 24 until Sunday, November 11 inclusive.

Ye Olde Crown Inn manager, Robert Deeming, said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers.”

Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pubs.

Well.... I can see what you're both saying, but the fact is that Wetherspoons have done more for real ale and small brewers in this country than anyone else, ever.

Real ale is booming, and Wetherspoons deserve a really large slice of the credit for that.

Single or group of pub festivals like this get just as much attention in the local press (the one at the Hollybush in Stourport was advertised in exactly the same way), any pub that puts a couple of extra real ales on can get its name in the paper with ease.

They have also done more for supplying the alcoholics with cheap booze, My God, do we REALLY need pubs to open at 9am?(and don't give me any of that "open for breakfast" cr@p). Let's face it. if the real ale is cheap enough it'll sell, but will there be any left when the rest of us finish work?

Not as much as supermarkets and the sort of corner shop where you can pick up 2 liters of white "cider" for 99p or whatever that vile industrial by product sells for these days.

walkerno5 . . .Have you seen these pubs? The penny black has "clientelle" when I'm going to work FFS. I once had to arrange a meeting with someone in the crown on a Sunday morning (10.00) and was stared at because I ordered coffee! . I am well aware that supermarkets sell super strength "fixes", but ,to market wetherspoons as some sort of "local brew" supporting hero is just b@ll@cks. They are a powerful firm that holds breweries over a barrel(no pun intended). They are to local pubs as tesco is to local business

A quick look at Google News reveals that this story is printed, almost word for word, in The Bolton News, the Redhill & Reigate Gazzette and the Ledbury Reporter.
