Beer festivals are important cultural landmarks in many countries, and the occasions typically correspond to the time of year in which certain ales are produced. The beer festival calendar isn’t limited to events such as Germany’s Oktoberfest and London’s Great British Beer Festival held in the summer though, and those looking for something to warm them up and to get involved in a great party atmosphere in the colder months can find a number of winter ale festivals taking place across the UK and beyond.The most well-known of these in the UK is the National Winter Ales Festival, organised each winter by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) – an organisation devoted to encouraging beer drinkers and brewers to keep centuries-old brewing traditions alive. With the winter season being a time full of traditions – with Christmas and New Year featuring prominently – attending festivals such as this can feel like stepping back in time and appreciating the important role ale has played through the generations.The National Winter Ales Festival usually takes place each January, showcasing a wide variety of ales that were not able to feature in summer festivals due to their seasonal brewing, such as stouts and porters. First held at Glasgow’s Old Fruit Market in 1997, the festival now takes place in Manchester, but is by no means the only option for ale drinkers looking to sample the best regional brews this winter.Whether you’re looking to keep costs low with cheap train tickets around the UK or you’re prepared to travel further afield – to events such as the Portland Holiday Ale Festival taking place in Oregon, USA or the Kersbierfestival in Essen, Belgium this December – winter ale festivals can be as good a reason to enjoy a day trip or weekend away as anything. The larger events typically feature entertainments for all the family, so children and those who aren’t so interested in ale will find activities to allow them to soak up the atmosphere even if they aren’t sampling the brews themselves.Some people are reportedly deterred from attending ale festivals due to the belief that a drunken atmosphere will prevail, but organisers are keen to curb such tendencies among visitors, helping to ensure that the beer festival can be enjoyed by all. By drinking responsibly, you’ll have the chance to sample some of the finest local beers in the company of other ale lovers this winter.
