BeerMuda Triangle Festival returns to Newark with the collaboration of pubs: Just Beer and Flying Circus on Cartergate, Fox & Crown on Appletongate and the Organ Grinder on Portland Street.





Over 80 different beers are on offer from today as a four-day beer festival returns to town.

The BeerMuda Triangle festival, organised by the owners of micropub Just Beer on Castlegate, Newark, started in 2011, initially based at the town hall.

The festival began as a Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) during winter, however, its popularity outgrew the venue and a solution had to be found.

The owners of the micropub got together with other pub owners and organised the BeerMuda Triangle Beer Festival, which will run from today (January 24) until Sunday, January 28.

In its 12th year, the festival includes four pubs, JustBeer and Flying Circus on Castlegate, Fox & Crown on Appletongate and the Organ Grinder on Portland Street.

Among all the pubs, it is expected to offer around 80 different beers, some of which are not available in the UK or are brand-new.

The Fox and Crown is to reopen as the first Yupp Beer pub.

Co-owner of JustBeer, Duncan Neil said: “People can expect a good atmosphere and a lot of different and interesting beers.

“Each pub has different offers and the variety of it and venues is great, some people will have the chance to try some of them for the first time.”

At JustBeer there will be two beers that were brewed exclusively for the festival.

"Everybody that comes can check the different beers and the different pubs, it is like a pub crawl,” added Duncan.

The festival often attracts Newark residents but also from its outskirts. A mini-bus trip is planned to arrive in the town from Retford as well as people from Nottingham and Derby.

The festival times will depend on the pub’s opening times.
