Ale & Steam Weekends

North Cotswold Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale

 

        Celebrating 10 Years

 

        These popular events started in 2009, so in 2019 we will be celebrating the 10th year of holding them. In total so far, 17 Ale & Steam Weekends have been held, detailed below. At the Railway’s request, we will revert next year to holding just one Ale & Steam Weekend, like we did in 2009. But this event will for the first time be open over 3 days (Friday to Sunday) at both Winchcombe & Toddington Stations.

 

          Great Beers

 

          The present proposal is for Toddington to have beers which have previously won the best beer award at one of the Ale & Steam Weekends. Some of these beers may no longer be available, so in order to make-up the required total we may include beers which won at the Moreton Beer Festival event. As normal, Winchombe will have the local beers, plus a selection of other national beers. The final beer list will be available nearer the time of the event in June 2019.
