Two new brews, a host of favourites and the famous Bombardier bus to make up the Wells & Young’s bar at the Great British Beer Festival 2013!

With CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival just around the corner Wells & Young’s are putting the finishing touches to what promises to be its best festival bar yet!

The famous Bombardier Bus will be returning to GBBF as the backdrop to the Wells & Young’s bar which will include a selection of some of their most popular cask beers as well as a couple of exciting new additions!  

In addition to the English, ever reliable and damned tasty Bombardier, beer lovers will be able to enjoy Young’s Bitter and Special, Courage Best, Courage Directors and Wells Eagle IPA.  New for this year’s festival Wells & Young’s will also be bringing along its new summer ale called Young’s Hummingbird which launched earlier this month and has had rave reviews.  In fact it has almost sold out completely so make sure you visit the bar early to avoid disappointment!

Wells & Young’s will also be offering festival goers a try of the brand new Courage Imperial Russian Stout 2013 Vintage, which will be available in cask format exclusively for the GBBF and will be on sale only for limited periods each day.

Emily Hudson, Marketing Manager at Wells & Young’s said: “GBBF is one of the most popular and prestigious beer festivals of the year and we are thrilled not only to be showcasing our popular cask and bottled beers, but also to be able to introduce beer lovers to something new.

“Hummingbird is our new seasonal golden ale with a hint of passionfruit and has been extremely popular already.  Festival goers will also be some of the first to try the 2013 Courage Imperial Russian Stout Vintage where it will be exclusively available in cask so we’re looking forward to the Wells & Young’s bar being a popular destination throughout the week.”  

This year Wells & Young’s is also sponsoring the take-home carrier bags for the festival which will include a flyer entitling people to a free pint of Young’s beer in a participating Young’s pub in celebration of the new look pump badges for the brand.
