Default Annual Beer Festival

For the newbies here, the Irish Village will be holding their Annual Hopfest over the weekend 21st August...always a good bash with plenty of music as well as a fine selection of ales...120 varieties, allegedly.

errm, that 120 incluedes the standard Euro/American mass produced factory stuff, so don't expect 120 real ales!

of the 120, expect roughly half to be variations on Carlsberg/Carling/Fosters/Bud/Coors...

Like the married man says, they refused my 4yo daughter access to the beer tent last year so we went home. Returned the next day childless, but still a little bitter. Not suitable for young children, they said...but it was fine in 2006

its a good idea to turn up early. last year the queues were horrendous! not nice to be stood in this heat for a long time. we went early so no problem but I think some people were waiting nearly an hour to get in

Beer Festival?... in Dubai?... ok I have a thing or two to learn… I didn’t think there was any drinking going on unless it was in a hotel? Am I missing something? I didn’t think there were any bars in Dubai?...

Sorry for the ridiculous question!

Hotels and Private Clubs. The Irish Village Pub is part of the Aviation Club.
