The list has been put together by Neil Harvey, who can often be found drinking in West Yorkshire and his trips south seem to have paid dividends with his contacts in various breweries. The list has 60 beers on it, many from our region or Derbyshire. Plenty of beers available are new to me, and I am sure most will be new to drinkers in the North East.

If you want beers from Milltown, Owenshaw Mills, or Revolutions they are there, rubbing shoulders with offerings from Leeds Brewery Tap, and Burley Street. Locally, Summer Wine, and Sportsman are represented, and Mallinsons have provided Neil with a festival special (lucky man !). He has made a coup in getting the first Cap House beers I have seen on a festival list.

From Derbyshire come Derventio, Black Iris, Rowditch.and Wentwell, and from further afield plenty of beers from the Marstons stable.

The festival is open all day Friday and Saturday at the Tynemouth Cricket Club in North Shields. https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5761264498865183675-9025925348347226005?l=www.aswiftone.com
