The Tour de France is coming to Yorkshire but before the Maillot Jaune visits the best county in the UK, Doncaster CAMRA is getting on it’s ‘collective’ bike for this year’s Doncaster Beer Festival.

The festival theme this year is to celebrate the beers of Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and London from breweries close to the first three stages of this year’s Tour de France.

The beer festival, organised by the Doncaster and District branch of CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale) will be held at The Hub, Doncaster College, from April 24-26.

The Doncaster Beer Festival will have over 120 Real Ales and ciders featured at the festival.

Local district breweries such as Doncaster Brewery will be well represented at the branch’s 24th festival.

In addition, there will be a foreign beer bar, fruit wines, food and live music.

The festival’s opening times are Thursday 6pm (5pm for CAMRA members) – 11pm and Friday & Saturday 11am – 11pm. Admission prices are £4, £6 (after 6pm on Friday) and £2 after 6pm on Saturday.

The admission price includes a festival glass and a souvenir festival programme.

CAMRA members gain FREE admission but will have to buy/hire a festival glass.

The Beer festival is now established as a major event in Doncaster’s social calendar.
