The Secret Beer Festival

Derbyshire. Arguably one of the best counties for beer, with an almost countless number of breweries.

Last week saw the Derbyshire Brewers' Collective festival at the Assembly Rooms in Derby, and a chance to try some of their great beers and local ciders.

It was a little disappointing Buxton weren't there but Black Iris Iron Gate stout (strong, roasty and dry), Ashover Hydro (pale juicy fruit) and Thornbridge Kill Your Darlings (kegged amber Vienna style lager) were superb.

The venue could have been busier. If there's going to be a showcase for all this excellent beer people need to know about it. The festival wasn't even listed on the DBC website.

There were a load of beers to look out for in future.
See the DBC website for links to all the breweries.
