The Bishops Castle Beer Festival was held on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th July 2010.
For anyone who has never been to a summer beer festival this would be an excellent one to try. The atmosphere in the town is unbeatable while the festival is running. Bishop's Castle is a small historic town in south Shropshire, surrounded by lush green fields and rolling hills. It is a truly idyllic place, with a number of beautiful old buildings and excellent pubs.
This was the 13th year of the Festival, and the town's 5 pubs will all be serving a large selection of real ales. Most of the Shropshire Brewery's will be represented, and there will also be a great selection from the rest of the UK. There will be more than 60 ales and ciders on offers at any one time.
The best place to stay is Foxholes campsite. This is a short distance from the centre of town, and has a real buzz during the Beer Festival. It's also in a stunning hilltop location.
