Stowmarket Beer Festival 2012

The Museum of East Anglian Life in association with CAMRA – the Campaign for Real Ale, kicks off its 16th Beer Festival on Thursday 28th June. The event which runs through to the Sunday afternoon of 1st July is perhaps the Museums most celebrated annual event. Visitors will have the chance to sample over 60 East Anglian real ales and a number of ciders. The festival takes place in the beautiful setting of the museum’s 14th century Abbots Hall barn.

Museum Director, Tony Butler feels that the museum is the ideal venue for an ale festival. “Stowmarket has a long history of brewing. There are former hop beds on the museum site near to the Rattlesden River. Although there is no longer a brewery in the town, companies like Muntons have helped the town retain its malting Traditions.”
