The Newcastle Beer & Cider Festival is once again getting ready to roll out the barrel. More than one, in fact.

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.

Newcastle Beer & Cider Festival, Wednesday 10-Saturday 13 April, first floor Northumbria Students Union, Newcastle. Wed 6pm-11pm, Thurs & Fri 12 noon-11pm, Sat 12 noon-5pm. £3 (free for CAMARA members). nclbcf-tynland.camra.org.uk
