What excellent news! The Portsmouth Beer Festival is set to return to our very own Guildhall. As you may or may not know this event was axed a number a years ago by the new owners of the city centre venue, why I have no idea. The event was a constant success, generated a tidy sum of money and never attracted any trouble. The Portsea Island Beer Festival which was set up instead was a great success, however, as pleasant as The Groundlings Theatre was it never quite compared to size and atmosphere that The Guildhall drummed up. This truly is great news and it looks like they have enjoyed a bit of an image revamp with some pretty clean rebranding. For more information check out their web page, Facebook and Twitter. See you there, tasting notes in hand.
