Colchester Beer Festival

Just to let you all know that the 4th Colchester Winter Ale Festival is happening for the next few days. It’s running every day from noon through to 11pm at Colchester Arts Centre with a wide variety of beers available.

I’m also informed that it will be the venue for a Colhester tweetup – a gathering of Colchester Twitter users, if you don’t know what that means – on Saturday afternoon from 3pm. Hopefully I’ll be there for that, so come along and say hello.
