The BSHG Beer Festival

Beer Fest 2016
The BSHG Beer Festival 2016

With the growing success of our previous Beer Festivals in 2015 and 2016, we are planning to go even bigger again this year. The festival will be held over the weekend starting on Friday the 1st of September 2016 until Sunday the 3rd at our local Ferry House Pub. We are looking to extend our bar area so all 20 beers will be on hand pumps to ensure you enjoy your ale at its very best. There will also be new branded glasses especially for the festival which visitors can purchase and keep to take away after the event. These were kindly sponsored by Crawfords Shooting Supplies.

We are also planning more entertainment during the course of the weekend with bands performing live music on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Saturday's band will be The Reach and on Sunday we have Peacekeeperz. We will also have traditional games including Saturday's Tug of War contest, so get your team in training now.
