Largest selection of Real Ales-world record set by the Robin Hood Beer Festival

 Nottingham Castle, UK --640 different beers have arrived at at Nottingham Castle for the second Robin Hood Beer Festival run by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) -setting the world record for the   Largest selection of Real Ales .

   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 for more ales.

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."   

  CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) campaigns for real ale, real pubs and consumer rights. CAMRA is an independent, voluntary organisation with 90,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe.
   CAMRA promotes good-quality real ale and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer's champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry.

    The Guinness world record for the largest beer selection in a bar was set by Dave Alexander of the Brickskeller, Washington, DC, with a total of 1,072 different beers.
