Canny Brew will be there on all three days bringing you live coverage of the festival, it’s beers and its bands.
But before then there’s 156 beers and around 40 ciders to reveal. We’ll be posting more details of them on our Twitter account, @CannyBrew, every hour as part of an experiment to try and give festival-goers more information and more appreciation of the beers they’ll find on the bar at the event.
Send us your thoughts on the beers and the festival by tweeting us @CannyBrew. And go grab your tickets for Gateshead Beer Festival 2014 over on the official website.
Of course if you can’t keep up with the Twitter updates we’ll have all the details, and reaction to the choices right here.
