The ever popular Celtic Beer Festival, hosted by St Austell Brewery, returns for its 17th year this November with the doors of the Brewery’s ancient cellars opening once more for eager ale lovers.
On Saturday 28th November, the basements of the Victorian Brewery will be unlocked for punters from across the country to enjoy the annual charity event, celebrating the very best Cornish ales, stouts and lagers with live bands playing all day and night.
Last year saw a record attendance of just over 3,000 revellers during the 12 hour event, with the festival raising over £25,700 for the brewery’s Charitable Trust, breaking all previous figures since the festival started.
Jeremy Mitchell, St Austell Brewery Marketing and Communications Director, said: “The amount that the festival raised last year was incredible. We are excited to showcase some of our specially brewed beers for people to enjoy in the unique atmosphere, and hopefully we can raise even more money for local charities this year.”
This year there will be more than 130 different ales, stouts and lagers available at the four bars with a selection of St Austell Brewery’s own award winning beers, including Tribute, Korev and Proper Job as well as a selection of limited edition beers brewed especially for the festival.
The music line up this year includes; The Good Old Fashion Lover Boys, Almost Blues, Ten Bob Notes, Black Friday, The Viewers, Russel Sinclair and the Smoking Loco’s, Alex Hart, JacKnife, Auction for the Promise Club, Love Street and Singa-Longa-Lenny.
The festival doors will open from 11am – 11pm with tickets sold on the door at £10 per person. This includes a commemorative festival glass, 2 x ½ pint beer tokens and a festival brochure with extra tokens available for purchase.
There'll also be guest ales from all members of the Cornwall Brewers' Alliance, so you can see for yourself why Cornwall is staking a claim as the best beer producing county in the land.
