Cambridge Beer Festival 2019 celebrates the moon landings‘ 50th anniversary. In July 1969, Apollo 11 launched from the Kennedy Space Centre with Neil Amstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on board. This moment in history is honoured worldwide, and so the Cambridge Beer Festival is not only offering unique beers this year, but is also showcasing some drinks which have been specially brewed for this occasion, holding lunar names.
Once you enter to the beer festival – in case you didn’t bring your own -, you’ll need to purchase a glass from the glasses stall for £3, then you are ready to go! There is an excellent range of brewery bars such as Adnams, Bexar County, Grain, Three Blind Mice and Turpins, which all can be found in the main beer tent. All visitors are provided with a handy festival guide catalogue that explains all the facilities, along with the most important part of the event: the beers. A whole description of special drinks can be found in there including their names, alcohol percentages, flavors, textures, and so on.
This year, our personal favourite beer was Luna (5.2%) defined as ‘dark saison with roasted, malty flavour and coffee overtones’.
And that’s not all; Cambridge foodies also have the option to pair their beer with cheese, Paella, Fish and Chips, Donuts, and so on.
The event is ideal for all, with or without their furry friends ( I mean dogs, not very hairy people) and is of course aimed at those who love their beer and cider but it also caters for those who are into their wine. This year, Cambridge Beer festival offers a selection of English wines from six different vineyards including Coopers Croft, Dedham Vale, Giffords Hall, Lavenham Brook, Warden Abbey and Winbirri Vineyard.
