Trafford and Hulme CAMRA and St Clements Church are pleased to confirm that the 9th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will take place on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July 2013.
The festival will feature its largest range of cask ales ever with over 90 planned. There will be the usual mix of established festival favourites, the best from local breweries and a selection of carefully chosen featured beers from around the country. There has been an explosion of new breweries in the area over the last couple of years and there are now 66 breweries located within 20 miles of the festival.
For the second year in a row, the festival will be hosting the North West Round of the Champion Speciality Beer Of Britain Competition - visitors can look forward to sampling the best cask ales with unusual ingredients - fruit, spices, honey and whatever else brewers choose to brew with. The finalists are voted for by CAMRA members across the North West with the top eight coming to Chorlton where they will be judged by a panel made up of trained CAMRA tasters, local publicans and celebrities. The winning beer will go forward to be judged against the winners of rounds across the country at the Great British Beer Festival in London.
Alongside the cask ales, there will be a choice of around 50 traditional ciders and perries and a large range of bottled continental beers from some of Europe's finest traditional breweries.
