A week to go until the beer festival opens so here’s a reminder of the opening times:
Friday 3rd 5pm – 11pm
Saturday 4th 12pm – 11pm
Sunday 5th 12pm – 8pm
We are not open bank holiday Monday (a few always turn up – you know who you are!) but if you want to help us clear up the site ready for the school to open on Tuesday then come along 🙂
Please remember that there’s lots of events on Saturday and Sunday afternoon to keep the kids occupied, take any rubbish back home with you and note there is no parking whatsoever on site.
See you next weekend!
Good new! Both foreign beer and real ale lists are now on the website. They’re only basic lists at the moment and we’ll add tasting notes as soon as we erm…. taste them! There is likely to be some changes due to availability at breweries but we will definitely have over 60 different ales this year.
As usual we will be selling collectable glasses (both pint and halves) and for the first time this year we are producing a limited number of festival t shirts so get them while you can.
See you soon!
All bands have now been confirmed so check the band page. London Road Studios are sponsoring the main stage and Balstock and Mr Speaker are running the acoustic stage for us. As always entry is free and the music is loud!
The acts on the acoustic stage are all performing for free to raise money for this years Balstock festival and on Saturday Mr Speaker will be raising money for Mencap so give them support and chuck some money in their tins if you can spare it.
Paul and Gayle were dispatched to the far corners of the home counties to source the best cider they could find. Well they’re back and the list of producers is now on the real cider page.
We will give you a full list of ciders once we can coax Paul out of his apple induced coma!
