Now in its 45th year (excluding 2020), the Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival is gracing the grounds of the iconic Trent Bridge for the first time. Despite a change in location, Nottingham CAMRA has promised all the enjoyment of previous years. There will be a huge amount of cask and keg beer, real ciders and a gin bar. As always, there will be a mouthwatering array of food stalls to keep you warm and fuzzy.
You’ll also be able to head up into the stands overlooking the ground to sit back and relax with a beer.
One difference this year is that your ticket does not automatically include the usual RHBCF tankard. Thanks to a glass shortage, CAMRA have pooled together tankards from previous years for you to use. A limited number of 2021 commemorative glasses will be available to purchase and are – as always- sponsored by Castle Rock.
You can find Castle Rock bar just inside the Main marquee. Come say hi!
Decadently smooth from its time in barrel and balanced by a subtle boozy hit from the cognac. Delicate cherry, vanilla and caramel notes come through on the nose, followed by an intense, full-bodied mouthfeel, followed by a lingering dry, oaky finish.
Satisfying and full-bodied. Dried fruit, spice and marmalade on the nose, balanced by smooth and creamy notes of chocolate, coffee and caramel.
Satisfying tart rhubarb flavours brought into balance by sophisticated dollops of sweet vanilla custard. A classic dessert transformed into confectionery, then melted back down into beer.
Bursting with juicy, tropical passion fruit flavours. Brewed on a super soft, full-bodied base and balanced by subtle acidity from Philly Sour yeast.
A fresh and juicy hop-bomb. Crammed full of hops, balanced by residual sugars from the malt bill and softened by a chloride-heavy water profile.
Your go-to session IPA. Upfront hop aromas of grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruit give way to a juicy and more-ish flavour with a soft bitterness.
What needs to be said? Our flagship pale. Exquisitely poised.
Back by popular vote, this dry hop pale puts Simcoe at the fore.
A smooth and balanced stout brewed with Colombian coffee beans.
A single malt ale with a lovely golden hue. A blend of First Gold, Challenger, Aurora and Bobek hops give Elsie Mo its delicate citrus aroma and floral taste.
A double dry hopped pale showcasing a classic. Brewed with 15g/l of Citra, expect an intense, zesty aroma with grapefruit and tropical fruit flavours in abundance.
Screech Owl is a classic, balanced American-style IPA with a long hop finish. Well-hopped with Cascade and Centennial and brewed to export strength.
Rich, warming Black IPA with a distinctive hop and caramel finish.
