Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival


LAST ORDERS FOR CARDIFF CITY HALL

The last weekend in November will see time finally called for Cardiff City Hall as the venue for the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival. The hugely successful festival, which regularly attracts over 4000 customers has been organised by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, for 7 years at the historic venue. However thousands of thirsty customers need not fear as in June next year the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival will be even bigger and better at the new venue, Cardiff International Arena.

According to James “Arfur” Daley, CAMRA spokesperson, “We've had a good few years at City Hall but have outgrown the venue. There is no room for expansion at City Hall and the Festival is getting more and more popular every year. CAMRA will be sorry to say goodbye to City Hall but we're determined to make the Festival this year the best ever. We've ordered more beer and cider this year and also will be open 5 hours earlier. It's the final year at City Hall but let's all look forward to the CIA in 2008”.

The Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival will be featuring real ales, both bottled and on draught from across Wales and the rest of the UK, as well as ciders and perries, many from Welsh producers as well as a range of German beers, both on draught and bottled. One of the highlights of the Festival will be the Champion Beer of Wales competition, announced on the Friday afternoon. Judged by CAMRA members and brewing industry experts, many Welsh breweries regard this as the highpoint of their year. Competition is even more fierce this year with over 35 real ale breweries now brewing in Wales.

Festival Facts:
• Over 19, 000 pints of real ale, cider and perry will be sold at the festival.
• That’s over 10 tons of beer, cider and perry!
• Over 4000 customers will be attending the 3-day festival.
• 170 different real ales will be available at the Festival.
• An average of 9 pints every minute will be sold when the Festival is open.
• Around 50 ciders and perries (pear ciders), many from Welsh producers, will also be available to complement the real ales.
• Over 100 staff, all CAMRA volunteers, will be staffing the Festival.
• A range of beers from Germany will also be on sale at the upstairs bar.
