BEER FESTIVAL @st_austell_brewery ’s 19th annual Celtic beer festival is tipped to be one of the biggest Cornish parties of 2017.
So, for those of you who are in need of a pre-Christmas, beer-filled gathering, this event is for you.
With the doors at the brewery opening at 11am and closing at 11pm you'll have 12, yes 12, hours to work your way through an extensive list of fabulous beers and ciders from across the UK. From green-hopped pilsners to chocolate stouts, there is most definitely something for everyone at this much-loved event. Of course there will be St Austell Brewery favourites like @tribute_ale, Proper Job and @korevlager. Also featured will be the brand new Christmas Bock from @bathales, Sulis, @healeyscyderfarm @rattlercyder and @skinnersbrewery Porthlevan.
For most of you, the beer will be enough, but for the few that need more than a line-up of over 190 beers and ciders to try, there is live music too! A diverse line-up is scheduled throughout the day; get your dancing shoes ready for the phenomenal Motown Pirates. A polite warning comes with their set, you will not be able to sit still and may feel the urge to dance to every song! For those of you not so confident on the dance floor, don't despair, follow the moves of the dancers on stage or just embrace your dad-dancing style - either way just enjoy the gig!
Also playing during the evening are the extremely talented @thevelvethands who have recently been played on @bbcradio1. Check out St Austell Brewery's website to see the full music offering and timings for the day.
As much as we love it, the festival isn't just about beer and dancing, there is a serious side to the event as well. Over the last nineteen years, independent and family-owned
St Austell Brewery, has raised over £200,000 for local charities, organisations and individuals in need. This is all made possible through sponsorship, donations of beer and the volunteering of Brewery staff across the day.
Tickets cost £10 - check out their website for more info!
