The theme of the 7th South Woodham Ferrers CAMRA beer festival is “Beers from Robin Hood Country”. We will be offering 36 real ales, many of which will come from the East Midlands, where Robin Hood is reputed to have hailed from. Today, there are some really excellent beers being brewed in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire, and we aim to choose some of the best for you to try at this year’s festival. We will also have a good selection of real ales from our local breweries here in Essex. The Village Hall members’ bar will be available for visitors to the Festival to use, which will offer a range of Wibblers Ales.
There will also be ten ciders on offer. The festival will be held from 4th to 6th October at the Village Hall, Hullbridge Road – which is only a two minutes’ walk from South Woodham Ferrers railway station.
This year, our nominated charity will be Mr Gees Foundation of South Woodham Ferrers, to support their excellent work in local projects which benefit the community and international water aid programmes.
The beers and ciders have all been ordered and we think we've found a really interesting selection of beers and ciders for you to try this year. There are many beers which we never see in Essex to sample, and the ciders and perries have been sourced from makers from all over the UK.
