It is one of the more unusual but popular East Anglian beer festivals on the calendar, effectively coming with its own rail service.
But can you see yourself enjoying a tipple in our gallery from this year's Chappel Winter Beer Festival?
Every year, the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) organises summer and winter beer festivals at the East Anglian Railway Museum at Chappel and Wakes Colne station, near Colchester.
Over the years the two events have become among the most popular in the country, attracting ale lovers not only for the great range of drinks but also its more unusual location.
The venue certainly has its benefits - Greater Anglia services still stop at the station on their way through on the Marks Tey to Sudbury line, giving visitors to perfect way to get to and from the two-day event.

"If you're a real beer enthusiast, the winter one is a bit more compact but you still get a good range of people there. It is quite friendly in that way.
"We're trying to promote real ale in the area and promote the railway museum."
Entry to the festival is free to Camra members and £3 for non-members.
Those who miss it will have to wait for the summer event, which this year is due to take place between Tuesday, September 8 and Saturday, September 12, subject to final confirmation.
