BATH BEER FESTIVAL 2015

This year, 2015, the CAMRA Bath Beer Festival was held, for the third year, at the Premier Suite of Bath Rugby, on the weekend of the 10th and 11th of April. The venue, just over the river from the city centre, has proved to be a winner, both with the customers and with the branch.

Well over thirty five beers where up for grabs this year, as well as a good selection of ciders and Perry, the emphasis being on local breweries and suppliers.

 With its large panoramic windows giving views over both the city and the surrounding hills, the venue has a light and airy feel, while the separate seating area meant that you will have a much more comfortable time for all the open sessions.

 

We’re delighted to say that the festival was a great success for both CAMRA and, we believe, the customers.
