Absolutely heaving down the seafront and a lot of beer was being consumed at the beer tent. Barrels were disappearing very quickly. Good to see so many people having a good time.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - DogBolter Dark Porter5.60ExcellentAbsolutely lovely pint. Thick and creamy with a lovely chocolate and roasted malt flavour.
Dark Star - Original5.00ExcellentVery dark with roasted malt and fruit flavours. Extremely good.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodSolid best bitter. Malty and refreshing.
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Jaipur5.90GoodNot my cup of tea, but others were raving about it. Extremely hoppy with a bitter finish.

Summary of Beer Scores


The Beer Festival is found in Ramsgate, Kent.

A beer festival of sorts along with a funfair, market and water-skiing. Third year running, originally had powerboats, but that's been exchanged for water-skiing.

We have visited this Beer Festival once, seen 7 different beers and tried 5 of them.
