Food & Drink Reviews
I’ll drink to that…
Forget Christmas. This event is my Christmas, birthday and football team securing an unlikely away win, all rolled into one. I love this event and this year’s is bigger than ever with 120 beers available in various strengths and styles, as well as 50 ciders and a gin bar. (I love the sense of adventure the festival imbues in me, with many of these drinks totally new to the north-east.) Also on tap will be feel-good vibes and this year the very popular Silly Hat day is back on the Thursday, which is always a real hoot. There will also be live bands to give you some rhythm with that booze, and you can get updates on these from the website below.
