"Sgt Pubcat's Only Dark Beer band"

30th Nov - 2nd Dec 2017

Welcome to our last beer festival of the year. We have every coloured beer available as long as it's black. A celebration of all things dark! Everything from traditional milds to even more traditional imperial stouts. There are beers with extra hops and beers brewed with extra sweet ingredients. As always third pint measures are available so you can try all the beers despite some of the heavier strengths. Please enjoy and let us know what you think.
