2015 Winter Festival @ Alton College

20-21 February

What’s New

As you’re coming to Alton College we thought we would give you a reason/excuse to come on Friday evening.  We have invited several brewers to educate you about Real Ale and Craft Beer.

There will be two ‘Tutored Tasting’ sessions where you can listen to the brewer talking about how and why they brew the way they do whilst you sup some of the beer.  Learn about Malts, Early Hopping, Dry Hopping and the effect they have on the colour, flavour and bitterness.  Ask them questions and improve your knowledge so you can get more from your beer drinking, another reason to have another, just to get the flavour!!  The brewers are highlighted on the Beer List.

At all three sessions you can ‘Pull Your Own’!  A chance to try your hand on a hand pull and serve your own.  Why does it sometimes take a pub several pulls to get to your pint and others only a couple?  What is the impact on the first pint pulled of the session?
