The Beers

This year we are going to be trying something different! Instead of us selecting the beers, we would like you to choose them for us. Please get in touch – you can email or find us on social media on Facebook or Twitter

How it works

  • Send us your favourite beer
  • It can be 1 or a list of 20!
  • If you like draft ciders, include them too
  • You can also tell us if you have a favourite lager
  • Over the next few months we will collate it into a list & then launch a poll on our Facebook page
  • The more people that you get to vote in the poll, the more likely it will feature at the event

The Entertainment

We have lots in store to keep you entertained whilst sampling our beers and gins. Live Rugby, Live Sport on the T.V., Family entertainment and Live Music.
