Join world-famous beer writer and former Good Beer Guide editor Roger Protz for a evening discussing and tasting a range of beers - from bitters to golden ales and IPAs to stouts and porters - examples of which will be available to buy from the bar on night plus extra beers on the bar. Free admission.
Run by CAMRA member Jim and his small team, the Robin Hood is a warm and friendly single-bar community pub a stone's throw from City station. Uniquely in St Albans, the pub stocks Harvey's Sussex Best as a regular beer, as well as at least two other rotating cask ales - but the range is likely to be bigger during festival week. Real ciders are also available.
