2012-01-04 Upcoming beer festivals

A new year has begun, and I’ve started looking forward to what it will bring of ale enjoyment. However, it’s a slow start in the South East, and the list below is both a bit short and does include some events that are a bit further away, though they do sound like they would be worth a journey. Above all it includes the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival, which is always the place to be for me in the winter (even if this winter isn’t that wintry).
