Here's the first of our special real ales being brewed to commemorate the first ever Bearwood Real Ale festival on May 6th.
At 6% abv the Sandwell Strongman, named to tie in with the Strongman competition, is a full-bodied beer to be treated with some respect. It is being specially brewed by one of our partner breweries for the event, Kinver Ales.
We also need to remind people that the real ale festival will be in a separate fenced-off area of the park, and in accordance with licence the admittance will be limited to people over the age of 18. Stewards will be operating a strict 'Challenge 25' policy, which will require people who look under the age of 25 to co-operate by providing proof age and photo.
