August in the Shires

Codsall Railway Buildings Pub is holding a beer festival starting on Thursday 23rd through the Bank Holiday weekend; still no beer list though (opens at 16:00, less than 27 hours away).


Steam Town Brew Co in Eastleigh are having a beer festival over the bank holiday weekend. All the beers they’ve brewed so far plus beers from the likes of Elusive and Unity. 5 min walk from the station if anyone is after new Hants ticks.

A few rates for me in there; Friday sorted!


Friday sees me at the Peterborough Beer Festival. Link to list below. 300+ beers with a larger number from Cambridge, Norfolk, Rutland and many more. It started today so expect a fairly limited selection by Friday, but they have some interesting looking beers. The KeyKeg bar is still there, although may be still referred to as KeyCask to keep some old school CAMRA types happy. I’m there on Friday so missing Codsall sorry @BlackHaddock.
