Real ale fans get ready for 12th beer festival
HUNDREDS of real ales will be available for drinkers to taste at this year's Derby winter beer festival.
The four-day event is the 12th the city has hosted.
It will take place at the Roundhouse, in Pride Park, from February 20 to 23.
Organised by the Derby branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, the event has been held at Derby College's Roundhouse for the past two years, having previously been held at the Assembly Rooms.
Last year, for the first time, the winter festival hosted the regional judging for the Campaign for Real Ale's annual Champion Winter Beer of Britain award.
The doors open at 4pm on Wednesday, February 20.
Entry prices will range from £3 to £6, depending on the day and whether it is a day or evening session.
There will be a range of music including acoustic acts and tributes to The Killers and Muse.
More than 300 beers, ciders, perries and mead will be available to taste from local and national brewers.
Food will also be available, including products from Alfreton butchers Owen Taylor.
