12-day Real Ale and Cider Festival comes to Redditch

Harry Leach 2nd Oct, 2018

PUB-goers will be able to enjoy a selection of up to 30 ales and ciders, some which have never been served before, during a 12 day festival starting next week.

The festival, designed to showcase independent British craft brewers, is taking place at The Rising Sun in Alcester Street and The Royal Enfield in Unicorn Hill from Wednesday October 10 to Sunday October 21.

Each of the brewers is a member of SIBA – the organisation that promotes small independent brewers and their beers.

The Rising Sun manager, Joanne Mullen, said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of the beers that they brew, many of which have not been served in the pub before.

“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that my customers will enjoy themselves.”

Among the beers on offer are those brewed exclusively for the festival as well as award-winners.

In addition the pubs will serve five UK produced ciders.

The ciders include Toffee Apple (Mr Whitehead’s), Legbender (Rich’s) and Premium Perry (Broadoak)


Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales or ciders in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.

Tasting notes of all of the beers and ciders will be available in the pubs.
