There are only a couple of other ale festivals
as large as Nottingham's and they tend to have fewer beers
in larger quantities. In contrast, brewers are required to
bring to Nottingham smaller firkins, meaning there's room

Councillor Unczur said: "It's great that visitors
to this year's popular Robin
Hood Beer Festival will be able to raise a glass to
Nottingham's ambitions to host World Cup matches in nine years.
It will be even better if everyone who tries the special 2018
ale backs our bid."
