Alton Beer Festival
The Alton Beer Festival is organised by two fabulous local heroes, Peter and Ysanne Legg.
They have been involved from the very beginning and have driven the success of the
festival by committing a huge amount of time and enthusiasm.
2015 Winter Festival @ Alton College
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?
