Peterborough CAMRA 40th Beer Festival 2017

Once again it’s time for my local Peterborough CAMRA beer festival, now in it’s 40th year!  I’ve been going on and off since I was 17, and have seen it grow into a huge outdoors festival of beer.  It’s run by the local CAMRA team, and can be a little traditional for my liking – although last year they did introduce a Keykeg bar selling some interesting craft beers.  I’ve always been a big supporter...

Technically it’s not really an app, just a mobile website optimised for phones and tablets –...

Peterborough Beerfest Mobile App

One small fact is that I wrote a mobile web app for my local CAMRA Peterborough Beer festival, which is actually the biggest out-door beer festival in the UK, and pretty much 2nd or 3rd biggest in the country full stop! As the original mobile app was getting a bit long in the tooth (it was written in 2012), I’ve completely re-written it in a new framework so it SHOULD look much better, and more importantly, the same, across all...

Beer Trip; 2015 National Winter Ales Festival

Another beer trip thanks to my local landlord ‘Bram’, who came up with the goods with some trade tickets for the CAMRA winter ales festival, now held in a very impressive building in Derby; The Roundhouse.  The building is obviously an old railway building, and it’s been renovated very well, and makes for a fantastic beer festival venue. Peterborough CAMRA were there in a small force – with more visiting on...
