Wetherspoon’s international beer festival

Wetherspoon pubs across the UK will each be serving a range of ten real ales from around the world, alongside beers from the UK, during a 17 day festival (Friday October 17 to Sunday November 2 inclusive).

The overseas beers have been sourced from brewers in New Zealand, the USA, Netherlands, Australia, Italy and Belgium.

They will complement up to 40 beers from UK brewers being served in the pubs during the festival.


Five of the international beers are being brewed by women, together with two beers brewed by female brewers in the UK.


The overseas beers are; Village Elder (Ian Ramsay, New Zealand), Night Owl Pumpkin Ale (Elysian Brewery, USA), Freak of Nature (Wicked Weed Brewery, USA), Ligera (Birrificio Lambrante Brewery, Italy), Golden Ale (Two Birds Brewery, Australia), Abbaye Blonde (Abbaye du Val-Dieu, Belgium), Bklyn Bitter (Sixpoint Brewery, USA), Real Antipodean Ale (Brew Moon Brewery, New Zealand), O.G. IPA (10 Barrel Brewing Company, USA) and India Session Ale (Brouwerij ‘t IJ, Netherlands).


The UK beers include; Crimson King (Butcombe), Golden Tipple (Long Man), Artisan Cluster Nut (Evan Evans), Toffee Bitter (Coach House), Old Engine Oil (Harviestoun), Old Hoppy Hen (Greene King),  Hobnobber (Thwaites) and Colonel’s Whiskers (Batemans).


The pubs will serve new, seasonal and speciality beers, including those flavoured with ginger, heather and honey, toffee, herbs and spices and cinnamon and nutmeg.


Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.
