The first day of the foodies festival sees the climax of CAMRA’s competition to find the best bottled beer in the country, with the winner announced at midday.

The Campaign is also hosting the Great British Beer Experience with some of the country’s leading beer communicators, including Mark Dredge, Jonny Garrett and Annabel Smith leading tutored tastings.

CAMRA is also giving away beer samples on the stand and our learning and discovery manager Alex Metcalfe will be on hand to talk people through the beers, styles and the brewing process.

And for anyone looking wanting to buy Christmas presents the staff on the CAMRA stand will be selling merchandise, books, memberships and gift memberships.
