CAMRA Derby Winter Ale Festival 2019
February 20 - February 23
February is the perfect time to visit the city of Derby, regardless of the state of the local football team Derby County’s fortunes. The 15th CAMRA Derby Winter Ale Festival will be held in the Roundhouse in the heart of the city from 20 to 23 February, 2019.
In addition to more than 400 ales, ciders, bottled beers and mead, the festival will feature a Craft Keg bar as well as Blue Monkey gin bar.
Entertainment will come in a form of live music including a medley of Elvis impersonators just to get you into the swing of things, as well as local rock bands.
With the highest ratio of pubs per capita in the country, Derby has been credited with leading a real ale resurgence in the UK. The city also has the country’s only recognised Beer King.
The city has three main breweries Altons, Offilers and Strettons, as well in excess of 100 real ale pubs, in addition to some micro-breweries.
Some of the city’s hostelries include Ye Olde Dolphin, which dates back to 1530, and The Brunswick Inn, which was the first railwaymen’s pub. The Flowerpot is a great music venue with local bands.
