Autumn drinking Festival

If you have taken a keen interest in the upsurge of real ale and micro brewing you won’t want to miss one of Hertfordshire’s key tasting and drinking events. The St Albans Beer and Cider Festival 2016 will be back in town from the 28th September to 1st October.
As ever there will be a mindboggling array of beers and cider to sample. This year they have introduced Beer Tokens to make sure people get served more quickly at the bars, you can buy tokens as you arrive for £12.00 with a glass or £10.00 without a glass. When you are inside the festival additional £10.00 cards can be purchased at the token stands in the main hall or in the basement close to the Foreign Beer Bar.
As usual there will be a range of food to compliment the drink. Yuleys Bratwurst served with onions and sauerkraut is a St Albans Beer and Cider Festival classic, but that’s not to diminish the exotic burgers such as Springbok, Ostrich, Kangaroo or Wild Boar with Stilton and Spring Onion. New this year is a pizza oven. There will of course be the other classic such as the Crusty Pie Company offer hot and cold pies to suit every taste. India Gate will be serving a wide range of tasty and authentic Indian foods including curries, samosas and wraps with vegetarian options in the main auditorium.
