CAMRA’s Ayrshire Real Ale Festival returns to Troon Concert Hall next month. Quiz P29 This year, the festival will once again stock more beer Join CAMRA P32 and cider than ever before. Ken More P34 There will be a choice of over 125 beers, similar to last year but many will now be in double-sized kilderkin casks, meaning the volume of stock is hugely increased. Because real ale is living, breathing beer that must be allowed to settle for two days before serving the festival staff cannot simply run out and get more stock that is ready immediately ready to serve. The stock is limited to what can be racked in the hall before opening but thanks to a lot of careful planning there should be enough to last until closing on Saturday night. The advice from organisers is - as always - come early. FESTIVAL PREVIEW PAGE 12 1
