Winslow Beer Fest!
Last weekend was the Winslow Beer Festival, which now in its 6th year is very much one of the better small festivals that has sprung up in recent times. Ths Buckinghamshire festival is is a joint venture between the local CAMRA group and the Winslow Lions, and one of the the things that makes it different to many festivals is that all the beer is sponsored by local businesses meaning that all the beer and cider is is already paid for, thus allowing a greater sum of money to be donated to charity which can only be a good thing.
MP John Bercow - Speaker of The House of Commons held the honour with an amusing speech reflecting on the day job "order order!"
Having been to nearly all Winslow Beer Festivals, something I have noticed is the ever increasing number of local breweries springing up, and this annual event being an excellent showcase to promote themselves, with The Buckingham Brewery being a new kid on the block worth seeking out.
Bletchley to Bicester line which is currently in a mothballed state should be reopening for passengers which will open up the festival for beer fanciers from further afield - good times!
