ALE Spring 2002 No. 305

Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2002

This year's festival was again a success. This time we had around 50 different beers, rather than the usual 30-odd, with only one cask of many of them (since the total number of casks is limited by space). According to the many positive comments we received, this increased choice was much appreciated.

We thank the many volunteers who helped out, before, during or after the festival though we always need more!

We're always interested in who comes to the festival from afar. Of particular note this time was a group from Portsmouth & SE Hampshire CAMRA, who came up on the Saturday by train, stayed a long while, then went on a tour of the best Good Beer Guide pubs of Cambridge and then planned to stop off at several classic pubs in London.
