Ticket(s)

TUTORED TASTING AND FESTIVAL ADMISSION VIP PACKAGE - WEDNESDAY ONLY

(146 tickets remaining)

This package not only gets you admission to the festival any time on Wednesday, a souvenir glass, and a £10 token to purchase beer and cider of your choice from any festival bar. It also gives you access to a very special tutored tasting session hosted by world-renowned beer writer Roger Protz. Starting at 7pm in the upper balcony, Roger will take you through a selection of six different beer styles, including mild, bitter, strong bitter, golden ale, porter/stout and barley wine. While you enjoy generous samples of each ale (included in the ticket price), you'll get an expert take on the different characteristics of these beer styles, their origins and history, pointers on how to assess quality, and suggestions of further examples to look out for. Roger, who as well as editing 23 editions of CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, has authored many critically acclaimed books about the UK and international beer scene, will also be available to answer any of your questions about beer and his incredible career celebrating it. This is a rare opportunity, and ticket numbers are limited.

Event Details

After two years away, St Albans Beer & Cider Festival returns to the Alban Arena in 2022 for the 25th time. While popular features from years gone by will be back, we're also freshening up the feel of the Festival, making it a truly inclusive and up-to-date pageant of real ale, craft beer, cider and perry - with delicious street food, great live music, and other attractions thrown into the mix.

This year's Festival has something for all tastes. With an array of showcase bars, you'll get to sample the extended ranges of our featured brewers as well as chat to the people behind the beer. In addition to these, our traditional festival bars will feature specially-curated selections of beers and ciders from across the UK and the world.

For more details about the festival, including what's taking place during different sessions, see www.stalbansbf.org.uk

As part of this year's St Albans Beer & Cider Festival, we're staging a very special tutored tasting session on the evening of Wednesday 28th September, hosted by world-renowned beer writer Roger Protz.

Starting at 7pm in the upper balcony, Roger will take you through a selection of six different beer styles, including mild, bitter, strong bitter, golden ale, porter/stout and barley wine. While you enjoy generous samples of each ale (included in the ticket price), you'll also get an expert take on the different characteristics of these beer styles, their origins and history, pointers on how to assess quality, and suggestions of further examples to look out for.

This is a rare opportunity, and ticket numbers are limited. By going to the "Wednesday" tab above, you can order an advance ticket package that includes admission to the tutored beer tasting, as well as general festival admission, tokens to spend at any bar, and a souvenir glass.
