Martyn Beer has led the team who have selected the cask ales available at the festival. He also sourced the ales for this year’s Stevenage Festival.
He stated, “It is always a challenging task choosing a beer list. We decided to try to have as wide a range of beers as possible as well as increasing the overall number. We will have a few beers that have been featured before and proved popular but mostly new ones We will feature some of the great new LocAle breweries from Herts and Beds such as Hornes and Rockhopper. There will also be a fantastic range of gluten free beer, from First Chop and Nene Valley. The aim being to bring new and exciting beers from all over the country to tickle your taste buds!”
Martyn has even tried his hand at brewing recently – helping Garden City Brewery in Letchworth to create a chilli-flavoured brew for Letchworth Chilli Festival “Mr Beer’s Bad Idea”.
The beer selecting team also includes Malcolm Chapman as well as Yvan Seth (Jolly Good Beer).
