Shrewsbury Beer Festival 2018 summary

Beers List

Beers are listed below in alphabetical order by brewery, which, with the exception of our main sponsor Stonehouse and the specials for the Church window funds, is how they will be arranged on the bar.  Those early in the alphabet are closest to the East end.  The main sponsors’ bar is against the Choir stalls.

Please note that not all beers can be guaranteed in any session. Although none are being reserved, every barrel has a bottom.  We’ve done our best on accuracy, but the beers aren’t in the hall and tested yet!
