We’ll take you on a Beer Safari in a tour of interesting and unusual beers from nearby and farther afield. All beer styles will be there, from golden ales, rich and hoppy bitters, copper ales, full-flavoured IPAs culminating with dark mysterious porters and stouts. There’ll be beer styles to suit everyone and all tastes!

With a rich cider heritage in the area, we’ll be offering a selection from local producers displaying the marvellous range of flavours and styles being produced.

There will also be a selection of wines including locally produced fragrant delicious wines to enjoy.

Entertainment on the Friday evening is being provided by popular local bands The Murmur and Some Other Beings, each with a wide range of soulful and exciting musical styles. Saturday evening sees the return of The Ranters belting out their lively Irish music and songs.

Tutored tasting sessions for beer and for cider have been organised for Saturday Afternoon at a cost of just £2. If you'd like to know a little more about the subtleties of beers and ciders why not sign up at the Tokens Stall?
