Beer & cider festival “a huge success enjoyed by all”


September 9, 2016 by Swansea Camra


Real ale fans from far and wide gathered at the Brangwyn Hall for Swansea Camra’s 30th annual beer festival over the bank holiday weekend.

In yet another record-breaking event, 3,275 visitors drank 1300 gallons of beer and nearly 1800 litres of cider and perry.

With more than 100 beers and 50 ciders to choose from, the event attracted record numbers on the Saturday night.

The event was organised and run entirely by volunteers, who have been hard at work for months planning the event.

Festival chairman Chris Radford said: “I’d like to thank all the volunteers for their hard work in making the festival a huge success that was enjoyed by all.”

The Brangwyn Hall once again proved the perfect setting for the festival with the colourful panels, ample space, good lighting and acoustics all adding together to create a fantastic atmosphere.

Visitors voted Mumbles IPA the beer of the festival and the winner of the competition was Malcolm Walker. Congratulations to Rob Turner of Mumbles Brewery and to Malcolm, pictured below receiving his prize at the No Sign Bar.
