Hop to Ealing for the best of British beer

Ealing Beer Festival

Suds flowing at Walpole Park

The 28th Ealing Beer Festival gets underway today in Walpole Park.

As well as a line-up of more than 500 beers, ciders, perries and wines, there'll also be live music from The Hanwell Ukelele Orchestra, The Graduates, The Good Old Boys and the King Buster Blues Band.

Showcasing over 340 beers from around the UK, you'll be able to taste a variety of ales including bitters, fruit beer, mild, stouts and strong ales, with the selection ranging in strength from 2.5% ABV to 10.5%, so there should be something for everyone.

The foreign beer bar features bottled offerings from some of the smaller breweries of Belgium, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and America, plus draught beer from The Netherlands, with styles represented including blond, amber, dark, wild, aged, fruit and wheat.

The festival runs until Saturday, 15 July, with doors opening at noon and the bar closing at 10.30pm (6pm on Saturday). Entry is £3 for CAMRA members and £5 for non-members. In addition there is a £3 refundable glass deposit.
