Welcome to Essex Real Ale (and Craft Beer!)

After blogging about real ale in Essex for some ten years, I stopped doing that in 2019 as most of my beery energies are now going into Watsons Brewery in Colchester. But although I’m no longer blogging I am keeping the Essex Breweries and Beer Festivals in Essex listings up to date, and tweeting as @EssexRealAle. And in February 2019 I added craft beer to the logo and strapline (though not the url) to be clear about what I cover. You can follow me on twitter @EssexRealAle, and facebook or email me essexrealale@gmail.com if you want something added to one of the listings.
