A microbrewery and pub in Bury St Edmunds is preparing to pit its best beers against an array of others as it launches its annual beer festival tomorrow (23) evening.
The Old Cannon in Cannon Street is hosting its popular beer festival from 6pm tomorrow through until 11pm on Sunday.
The event is being held to coincide with the Bury Food and Drink Festival.
The renowned microbrewery will be showcasing its full range of Old Cannon brewery beers – while there will also be a beer tent housing some 15 carefully selected beers.
Seven of the beers are making their return as favourites from previous festivals or as top sellers that occassionally grace the main bar such as Timothy Taylor Landlord (4.3 per cent).
The remaining eight guest beers are a little different – including the potent Green Jack Baltic Trader (10.5 per cent).
There will also be a chance to sample The Old Cannon’s very own Eddy’s Oak and Red Wine aged IPA (6 per cent).
“This weekend will be a celebration of beer, with all of our finest beers on sale at the bar and a fantastic selection of unusual and popular beers outside at the beer tent,” said Hannah Clark who runs the Old Cannon with husband Garry.
The Old Cannon has also given an extra twist to its ever popular Blonde Bombshell. Old Cannon Vintage and Fortified Blonde Bombshell will be available during the festival.
There will also be live music in the afternoons.
The festival is open from 6pm to midnight tomorrow and from 12pm to 11pm on Saturday and Sunday.
It is free to attend and food will be available. Visit www.oldcannonbrewery.co.uk
