Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival, Nottingham

About

Wednesday 9 - Saturday 12 October
Venue: Motorpoint Arena Nottingham

Nottingham's Indoor/Outdoor Beer Festival remains at the Motorpoint Arena!

Yes, you read that right, the beer festival will once again be mostly outside. It is at the Motorpoint Arena, but this is the Arena as you will have never seen it before. It is true that some of the bars will be on the ice (covered and insulated!), but there will also be two large outdoor areas, the Backstage Beer Garden, with brewery bars, food stalls and live music, and the Bolero Square Village which also offers bars, stalls and more live music! Both have areas where you are free to smoke or vape if you so wish. 

There will be plenty of seating, both inside and outdoor, with tables. Plus the stadium seats themselves will also be available for use should you wish to people watch from above.

"How many beers will there be?" is a common question every year. Well we don't know for sure yet, but it will certainly be over a thousand different real ales. This is of course more draught real ales than any other beer festival in the world! 

Once again there will also be what some might term a "craft beer" bar, unusual and rare beers served from a tap that is connected to a keykeg, like many of the beers found at the recent Nottingham Craft beer Festival. A keykeg is a plastic container with a flexible bag inside containing real ale. The beer is served by forcing compressed air between the inside of the container and the bag, which squeezes the bag and forces the beer to the bar. There is a range of rare keykeg beers lined up, some of which have never been seen in the city before.

Ciders and perries will not be forgotten and the festival's usual massive range will again be available.

Live music will again be an important addition to the festival, featuring in both the Backstage Beer Garden and the Bolero Square Village. This should mean non-stop music all day every day at one or other of the two locations, timed so that the two don't clash. 

New for 2019, there will be four tutored appreciation sessions so you can find out more about the process of brewing beers, ciders and perries, or discover the amazing world of taste that comes when paring different styles of beer with chocolate or cheese.  ​​​​​​

Tickets will be available for purchase online and over the counter at the Motorpoint Arena Box Office and at the Tourism Centre in the Old Market Square from Saturday 1 June 2019.
