43rd Cambridge Beer Festival Mead List
Please note that all the beers ordered are subject to availability and therefore may not be at the festival. We aim to have the vast majority of these beers available at all the sessions. However, the nature of real ale means that some beer will not be ready at the start of the festival, and the nature of our thirsty customers means that not all beers will be available at the end of the festival. Whilst we will endeavour to update this information, this may not always be feasible.
