Ciderhouse News - Welland Valley Beer Fest #5

Programmes for this year's Welland Valley Beer Festival are available from all of the pubs taking part. Amongst other interesting bits'n'bobs about the festival, it includes a full listing of the real ales which will be available (though not where they'll be, you have to find that out for yourself), and the all-important timetable for the vintage bus service on Saturday.

The cider list in the programme is not as complete as it could be, they rarely are at beer festivals for some reason. I've done a little bit of detective work to put together a slightly more detailed listing, though again, you'll have to visit the pubs to find out where they are.
