The Brum Vegan Beer and food festival returns this week from the 20th until the 22nd July at The Gunmakers Arms in the city centre.
This year it is one of the events of The Birmingham Beer week.
I've never understood the point in not making all beers, ciders etc vegan and Veggie friendly, after all in an economy that's sales driven surely by doing so you'll sell more beer and everyone will be happy. Of course others will disagree, but I'm a vegetarian so this is important to me. After all it makes perfect sense.
There are many vegan and veggie friendly beers on the market. The range gets bigger and bigger and breweries are now seeing the sense in this.
The Gunmakers Arms will host the festival. There house beer is brewed by Two Towers Brewery, who provide only vegan friendly beers.
The Gunmakers Arms has its own self contained Brewery-Two Towers Brewery.
For this it's third year it will be free entry.
However they are now offering beer tickets for £11.00 for 4 drinks. That means each pint is £2.75. Paid for in beer tokens.
Each ticket can be used on any of the festival dates.
These tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite: see below link.
The tickets can be brought on the day from the bar too.
There will be vegan beer in cask, keg, bottle and can formats.
Vegan food will be available on Friday from the superb Real Junk Food Project B'ham, and Saturday from Ubuntu Bakery and foods as well as Some of the food from the Gunmakers Arms.
Brewery's and Beers on offer include are mostly local but include a few from further afield.
