There are a few things you can be sure to show up in summer. One would be the heat – that is rather turned up – another would be beach parties and another would surely be beer festivals.

On Friday and Saturday the beer will be very much flowing in Paphos at the Medieval castle at Kato Paphos when you can enjoy a wide variety of beers from around the world.

Of course you will be sure to sample some home-made Keo, but if you feel that the blond beer needs to be compared with some other darker tastes you can surely have your pick. There will also be Carlsberg, Amstel, Becks, Leon, Guinness, Corona, Heineken, Budweiser, Murphy’s, Mythos, Stella Artois, Abbot Ale, Boddingtons and many more of the world’s finest beers bottled and ready to pop their tops.

But what good is all that beer and a very hyped mood if you have no music to move to? Well that will also be taken care of as the festival will also have some live entertainment by different bands, DJs, and some dancing by dance groups.

Also look out for some fireworks and a light show that will brighten up the night sky. There will also be prizes to be won at beer drinking competitions and you can also learn some tips and tricks of brewing your own beer.

Bring the kids along too as there will be a kids’ corner, bouncing castles, face painting, balloons and, well, we won’t ruin all the surprises.
