Welsh real ales are dropping into the Great British Beer Festival this week

Real ales from breweries in Wales will be gracing the bar at the CAMRA,  Campaign for Real Ale, flagship Great British Beer Festival this week.

The week-long event is taking place at London’s Olympia from Tuesday the 13th to
Saturday the 17 th of August and is expected to attract over 55,000 visitors, who’ll get to
sample over 800 beers from around the UK, international brews from Belgium, Germany,
Italy, and the USA, as well as traditional ciders and perries.

“There really has never been a better time to discover real ale, with over a thousand breweries in the UK producing over 5000
different beers. In fact the choice is so great that this year we have taken the decision to
feature just a single beer from most breweries, in order to represent the largest number of
breweries as possible from across the UK", said Mike Benner, CAMRA Chief Executive.
Whether it’s weird and wonderful beers like “A-
Pork-A-Lypse”, a Double Chocolate and Bacon
Porter produced by Brain’s Brewery in Wales,
or St Peter’s Brewery of Suffolk’s “Grapefruit
Wheat Beer” - or more established styles such
as “Dissolution IPA”, brewed by West Yorkshire’s Kirkstall brewery, or Fuller’s of
London’s classic “ESB” – the festival promises to have something for everyone.

The following beers from Wales will feature:

Brains Limited Edition Beer Glamorgan
Brains A-Pork-Alypse Glamorgan
