This friday is the start of the 3 day Hay Ale & Literature Festival at Kilvert’s Inn, Hay on Wye, Wales. You will be faced with a great choice of 50 Welsh beers from breweries such as Purple Moose, Breconshire, Great Orme, Conwy and the ever excellent Otley present with their GWBCF award winning O-Garden.
Alongside the ale is the literature side of things; guest events include Pete Brown, Beer Writer of the Year talking books, ale and cider, Melissa Cole does a beer and food matching talk and a specific ladies tasting event, and Zac Avery goes slightly off Welsh piste in talking about rarer beers in his books. Adrian Tierney-Jones and Tim Hampson fight it out in North vs South wales corners. Full details of all events are here.
Entry and Beer prices according to the organisers blog ‘Student Brewer’ this week are entry £5 for glass and programme although £2 of that is refundable, and beers are to all be priced £3/£1.50/£1 for a pint/half/third respectively (correct money only at bar).
