The 41st Bedford Beer and Cider Festival, organised by North Bedfordshire Campaign For Real Ale (North Beds Camra) opened yesterday, and this year’s organiser, Lynne Ratnett says “everyone is welcome”.
The volunteers attending each bar will be pouring some of the countries finest real ales, ciders, perries, beers from overseas and mead, until Saturday meaning there is something to satisfy all tastes.
The festival, which this year pays tribute to 100 years of the RAF, is at its usual home of the Bedford Corn Exchange and will provide beer lovers, old and young, new and experienced, a chance to sample what Britain’s best breweries have to offer.
There will also be live music, food and chocolate available too, as well as free soft drinks.
And as festival organiser Lynne Ratnett tells us in the video below. There’s plenty on offer for everyone and the festival isn’t just for old men with sandals and beards…
