What's On for Beer Festivals this weekend in Wales

A round-up of beer festivals this weekend
First up it's farewell to Richard Jackson (above) from the Pen & Wig in Newport who has decided to hang up his tapping mallet and is leaving the pub but with a final beer Festival this weekend to coincide with the Newport Food Festival. Some Scottish beers will be on together with East London and of course Tiny Rebel brews.
Pen & Wig fans need not worry though, the pub as been bought by JW Bassett and will reopen after a refurbishment.
Whilst on the subject of the Newport Food Festival, for those of you not boycotting the event due to the cultural vandalism inflicted on the City yesterday by the Labour Council, Tudor Brewery and Untapped Brewery will be there, along with Wales' worst brewery, North Wales Brewery, who will no doubt once again be selling their infected beers to the public.  

Cardiff First Saturday of the month? Then it's tme to head over to Artisan in Pontcanna for their monthly (unless its too cold) Festival Saturday October 5th. 12noon till 9.30pm
