5:00pm Sunday 16th March 2014 in News
Horley's Jack Fairman pub is to run a 17-day beer festival later this month featuring ten beers from around the world alongside 30 from across the UK.
The pub in Victoria Road, named after the racing driver Jack Fairman, who ran a car showroom on the site during the 1950s, will be running its festival from Friday, March 28, to Sunday, April 13, inclusive, with all beers priced at £2.35 a pint.
The international beers on offer have been sourced from brewers in South Africa, New Zealand, Sweden, Canada, USA, Belgium, Australia, Germany, Spain and Norway.
The overseas brews will include Tea Leaf IPA Gunnamatta from Yeastie Boys in New Zealand, African Pale Ale from Standeaven in South Africa, and Klosterbock from Kloster Brauerei Scheyern in Germany.
The UK beers will include Nut Brown from Hilden, Coiled Spring from Thwaites, and Raspberry Rose from Lancaster.
The festival will feature new, seasonal and speciality beers, including a hazy wheat beer, a chocolate beer, a raspberry beer, a lemon beer, a juniper beer and a plum porter.
In addition, many of the beers will be being stocked in the pub for the first time, having been brewed exclusively for the festival.
Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales in special third of a pint glasses for the price of a pint.
Pub manager Ross Markwick said: "We are thrilled to be serving such a fantastic selection of beers from across the world, as well as those brewed in the UK.
"The overseas beers have never previously been available as cask ales in the UK, which makes them even more special.”
He said: "The festival will be the perfect way for real ale enthusiasts to enjoy a range of excellent beers from overseas brewers.
"It will also give them an opportunity to support brewers throughout the UK, as the pub is featuring many of their beers."
Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pub.
