Until 10th May Nicholson’s pubs across the nation will play host to a beer festival, showcasing the very best in cask ales and speciality beers.
With an unrivalled selection of 14 Golden Ales to match the increasingly golden days of summer, the Nicholson’s Beer Festival will offer something for everyone – whether you’re an IPA expert or appreciating an adventurous Blonde for the first time. By downloading the Nicholson’s Hop Circle app, the first pint is a welcome £1.
Throughout the festival, there will be a unique opportunity to sample ales from Nicholson’s Grain to Glass competition, where a trio of British brewers were tasked with improvising ales from a ‘blind’ selection of ingredients. Varieties of ‘Style’, ‘ABV Range’ and ‘Hop Region’ were all selected at random, with the brewers relying on their creativity, experience and brewing know-how to create three innovative beers that will delight any inquisitive festival guest.
Alongside the Grain to Glass beer, cask ales from national favourites, as well as upcoming microbrews and craft beers will be on offer. Nicholson’s Beer Festival offers an unrivalled cask ale offering that can be enjoyed throughout the two week period.
Nicholson’s Hop Circle app also adds a unique digital element to the festival: tasting notes and information can be read and shared via the app’s Ale Library, where guests can also vote for their favourite Grain to Glass ale and enjoy a selection of rewards and benefits for their loyalty. Free to download on both iOS and Android phones, the app also allows users to find their nearest Nicholson’s pub, browse a collection of tasting notes in the Ale Library, and automatically receive further offers and promotions throughout the year.
Furthermore, anyone that uses the Hop Circle app during the festival will get the opportunity to win exclusive money-can’t-buy experiences such as spending a day helping to brew the next batch of Hadley’s Gold Ale with Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley.
