New location for Birmingham festival

September 1, 2017 by  

A popular beer festival that takes place in Birmingham each year is set to be held in a new location this year.

The Beer and Cider Festival, which is also referred to as the Brum Beer Fest, is the brainchild of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). New Bingley Hall, which is located in Birmingham’s Hockley Circus, has served as the venue during previous years, but that will change for this year’s event.

The 2017 festival will be held at the Custard Factory, which is situated in the Digbeth district of the city. The thinking behind this switch is that the new venue is more centrally located and easier for people to get to and from.

Over 200 real ales and ciders are set to be featured at the festival, which goes out of its way to support breweries that are based in the local area and provide rare ales. Andy Goundry, the organiser of the event, told the Birmingham Post:

“The new venue is easily accessible by bus and it is also within walking distance of the city centre, so there’s no problem getting there.”

This year’s festival is taking place over three days, starting on Thursday 26th October until Saturday 28th October and will be open between 11am and 10.30pm each day.

Events such as this often turn to print shops that can supply poster printing for promotional purposes.
