So will we run out?

This year we are again strictly limiting entry on each day. This means we will have beer for those people we are expecting on each day. 

Will all the different beers, cider and perry be available at all times? Being a natural product, some beers don't settle as expected and so a few won't be ready at the start.

For the most popular beers we order several casks, bringing them on one after the other - so that's why some casks are marked "duplicate beer". But despite this some beers will undoubtedly prove popular and run out before others. Even then, we aim to always have a range of different styles to try - milds, stouts, golden ales, lagers, strong ales and so on. By the way, as the programme explains we colour code the cask labels to help you identify the style.

Also, with so many beers on order we expect about half a dozen won't get delivered. Where this happens our suppliers will provide us with a substitute, but it will be too late for the printed programme so we post notices around the site listing the changes.
