Yesterday the Portsmouth Beer Festival announced details of their May 2017 event which is again to be held at Portsmouth Guildhall.
A large variety of ales will feature to suit the season along with a selection of the regular favourites to choose from. Brand new additions for 2017 will see a gin bar and wine bar added to the festival. With a wide-ranging audience demographic and an ever-increasing female attendance, we’ve stretched our range to cater for a big variance in tastes. The Prosecco bar has been very well received in past events and will be returning to feature alongside the brand-new wine bar. Gin has also seen a huge rise in popularity in recent times and will make it’s debut this May with different long mix drinks available as well as the good old fashioned Gin & Tonic. The Gins will be served with all the matching botanicals and mixers with a Gin expert on hand to advise the perfect pours!
