Winter Beer Festival in Local Aberdeen Pubs 2020

After the success of this event in 2019, we intend to organise a similar event in selected local pubs in February - provisional dates are Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th February. Full details will be posted once pubs and beers have been confirmed. Pubs intended to be included are the Stag, Grill, Globe, Under The Hammer, Krakatoa and the Queen Vic.

Also to coincide with this initiative, we are hoping to host the Champion Beer of Scotland heat for Barley Wines/Strong Old Ales. In conjunction with this we will be holding a mini beer festival with a small quantity of beers available. This will in no way be anything like the size of festival we held on a regular basis till 1016. Venue for this is unknown at present and it will possibly take place later in February 2020. Details will be publicised once we know where and when.
