Not too many there unfortunately. PLASTIC GLASSES - WHAT? Therefore one mark off each beer tried. Entertainment was mixed, but BBQ and Hog Roast went down well outside; pity weather was lousy

About the International Festival of Beer

Summary of Beer Scores



The Beer Festival is found in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, DE14 1NG.

First beer festival at the NBC; with a bit of a difference, this is a commercial beer festival which was all about the big boys rather than the microbreweries. Held in a marquee.

We have visited this Beer Festival once, seen 6 different beers and tried them all.
