It may already be bursting with choice all year round, but Mad Squirrel Tap is bringing out the stillages and putting on a selection of addition cask ales over both the St Albans Beer and Pub Festival weekends. That means there will be 30+ real ales, craft beers and ciders to sample! If you love checking out exciting, modern and generally fantastic brews spanning a wide range of styles, you do not want to miss this event.

Mad Squirrel Tap is a former restaurant and bakery in the shadow of St Albans Cathedral, converted a few years ago to house a regularly changing extravaganza of beer. Split over two levels with access from Heritage Close or Waxhouse Gate, the main bar is downstairs. All beers are available in third and two-third measures as well as pints and halves and there are cans and bottles available to take away. Pizzas and other bar snacks available.
