Here is the (nearly) full beer list for the Independent Salford Beer Festival 2016. One or two details are still t.b.c. so keep and eye on the Independent Salford Beer Festival Twitter feed and Facebook page for further updates and announcements.
If a beer doesn’t have tasting notes it’s most likely because it’s brand new (or is still in production) and so the brewer hasn’t had a chance to taste it and gather their thoughts just yet. Please feel free to come along to the festival, taste it for yourself and write your own.
The list is available in four downloadable formats: PDF (best for checking in a PC or Mac browser and PDF-reader enabled smartphones), PDF Checklist (best for downloading and printing), Epub/Ebook (suitable for most iOS and Android phones with an ebook reader utility) and Plain Text (best for copying & pasting to blogs, Facebook, message boards &c.)
