What’s your favourite thing about Surrey? One of mine is definitely local ale. As well as being a great way to buy local and keep local beer culture alive, some of the real ales are dashed tasty too. This summer my partner and I have been drinking quite a lot of T.E.A. – that’s Traditional English Ale from the Hogs Back Brewery, by the way, not leafy stuff in a pot. Many Woking and Guildford pubs also sell offerings from the Surrey Hills Brewery and if you’re lucky you might even find something from the Little Beer Corporation which is based at Slyfield in Guildford.
These three breweries, as well as other independent and micro-breweries from Surrey and the South East, will all be coming together to serve over fifty beers and ciders at G Live on 6 and 7 September. The Beer Festival will be divided into three sessions: 6.30-11pm on the Friday and 12 noon–4pm and 6.30-11pm on the Saturday. Tickets are £12 and include a brochure (to help you remember what you’ve drunk, presumably!) and a souvenir glass. Visit the G Live page to get in touch and make your booking.
