Newbury Real Ale Festival 2016

Tickets are now on sale (here) for the 2016 Newbury Real Ale Festival which takes place at Northcroft Fields on Saturday, 10th September. Although not a CAMRA event this is one of our favorite festivals. Organised and run by corporate sponsors, proceeds go to the Naomi House children’s hospice charities…


In a sense the festival actually kicks off tomorrow, 5th August, when thirteen Newbury and Thatcham area pubs participate in the Newbury Ale Trail. Details are at the festival website. During the next four weeks, by combining the opportunity to purchase advance festival tickets with the ale trail, extra beer tokens can be earned over and above those included with the general admission. This can make the festival very affordable compared to similar events; especially so when you factor in the quality of the beer, food and music provided.

2016 will be our 4th Newbury festival and once again we’ll be riding the rails for a Fueled by Beer trip; our previous year’s posts are: 2015, 2014 and 2013. The beer list for 2016 is now up at the festival website.
