Beer Festivals – When and Where
We’re rapidly heading into warmer weather and beer festival season. Here’s some of the best our region has to offer.
Egremont Beer Festival, Egremont Rugby Union Club
14 – 15 June
The Egremont Rugby Union Club Beer Festival goes from strength to strength, it’s now one of the most highly anticipated dates on the summer calendar. After last year’s record breaking event organiser John Nolan said: “It just keeps getting better and better. The support of the local community is growing every year for this friendly event.”
Featuring music from Don McKay, Mojo Rising and the Indica Gallery there’s plenty for young and old.
Real Ale, Cider, Gin Festival. Lowther Club, Whitehaven
24 – 27 May
Kicking off on Friday afternoon the Lowther Club will host a bank holiday of Ale, Cider, Gin and entertainment. Twenty real ales and six specialist ciders is impressive enough but add over 40 gins and you have a fantastic weekend.
It’s packed with a diverse range of entertainment from the likes of the Committed to Rock Choir, Emma, Nicki B, Jenia, Maverick, Vicky D, The Misfits and Cher and Meatloaf tribute acts. Festivals and Bank holidays go hand in hand, this is one not to miss.
