Cask & KeyKeg Beer List - St Neots 2020

For St Neots 'Booze on the Ouse' 2020, we plan to serve approximately 60 cask conditioned beers and 5 KeyKeg beers over the course of the festival, sourced from both well-established independent breweries and the newer 'craft' micro-breweries. As usual, a range of great beers from East Anglia and the East Midlands will be on offer, including more than 30 'LocAles' (which are brewed within around 30 miles of the festival). We also have a range of cask beers from across the UK, and including 6 from Scotland.

Sponsor a Cask! We are inviting companies, pubs and individuals to sponsor a cask of beer (or a tub/box of cider). The cost of this is £35 per cask and you will receive 2 free entry tickets, 2 free souvenir festival glasses and £10 worth of beer tokens. If you are interested, you can select which beer/cider you would like to sponsor - this will be on a first come first served basis. Names of companies, pubs or individuals will then be displayed on the product they are sponsoring. You are welcome to bring along advertising flyers etc. to put on the tables. Please contact ku.gro.armac.stnuh@pihsrosnops if you would like to sponsor a cask or if you have any questions

Please scroll down to see the cask conditioned and KeyKeg beers that we plan to offer during the course of the festival. It is possible there will be a few changes in the run up to the festival, so please check back here regularly for the latest updates!

Notes: We hope to be able to serve all of these beers during the course of the festival, but circumstances beyond our control mean the list is subject to change. Not all beers will be available at all times during the festival.

Allergen Information: These beers all contain gluten from barley, with the exception of Nene Valley beers (which are all gluten free). Many beers also contain gluten from wheat. For more information on allergens during the festival, please ask the Bar Managers or Festival Organiser.

Most cask beers are clarified by addition of isinglass finings. Although virtually no isinglass remains in the beer when poured, vegetarians may consider that fined beers are unsuitable for their diet (although they are of course acceptable for pescetarians). Isinglass was not added to beers that are marked unfined and these are therefore suitable for vegetarians. Unfined beers are often naturally hazy.
