Tuckers Maltings Beer Festival 

OK, so here's a bit of advanced notice for all you real ale enthusiasts. Get those taste buds tuned up, the Maltings Beer Festival in Newton Abbot, Devon will take place on 12th 13th & 14th April 2007, that is the week-end after Easter. One of the UK's premier beer festivals, the Maltings Beer Festival always begins on the third Thursday in April and attracts more than 3500 lovers of real ale, who gather to sample beers from around 35 breweries.

It takes place in Tuckers Maltings, a Victorian malthouse, about a quarter of a mile (400 metres) from the railway station; if you take the train you could easily walk to the festival, though you may be wise to book someone to carry you back to the train for the return journey!

Tuckers Maltings is one of the few floor Maltings still producing malt in the traditional way and are believed to be the only traditional Maltings in England
that is open to the public for guided tours.

Newton Abbott is on the edge of Dartmoor, so you can always make a week of it and take a few good hikes to build up a thirst.
