This July The Birmingham Vegan Beer Festival will be returning after the much deserved success of last years event.
The event which will be this year held at The Gunmakers Arms in Bath Street in the Jewellery Quarter and not at Two Towers Brewery in Hockley like last year.
The Gunmakers Arms which is owned by Two Towers Brewery and has recently opened will run the event over two days, 15th and 16th July which is the beginning of the Birmingham Beer week.
Last year I attended the event with Ruth and loved trying and ticking off the different beers and the food that was on offer from ChangeKitchen and last year The Warehouse Cafe.
The event will be bigger than last year, and include roughly 20 mainly locally brewed Vegan friendly beers.
The beers taking part in the festival haven’t been confirmed yet, but last year selection included from Two Towers, the excellent Chamberlain Pale Ale, Complete Muppetry, Hockley Gold, and Electric Ale.
Plus there were beers from Rock and Roll Brewhouse (Meat is Murder) named after The Smiths seminal album, and their full bodied mild called Telstar, Ginger Stout from Angel Ales brewed with fresh ginger, and the lovely Duck Blonde from Green Duck Brewing Company, with its fruity peachy then citrus, refreshing flavour and Gold Work from the fantastic Beowulf Brewing Company.
The Food will be provided by ChangeKitchen and Vegan Grindhouse.
Keep an eye on my blog for the full list of beers and food closer to July.
See you there.
