Over the last 12 months we’ve been really keen to put on a beer festival. We’ve attended a few, seen things we liked, and things we didn’t like so much. We also spent a fair bit of time reviewing beer, and found a wealth of local breweries that we didn’t know existed, and pretty good ones at that.

A few months ago we decided that we were going to do something about it. Partly because we wanted to put our ideas into practise, but moreso because we were inspired to create a place to share our favourite local breweries with a wider audience.

All of the breweries we have got to attend are invited because they offer something unique, something memorable and something we think deserves attention. Not only are they great breweries, but they operate from within Devon and Cornwall. Knowing the beers come from our local region makes them even better, in our opinion!

We have very high hopes for this festival. We’re creating the kind of festival we would want to attend. For example, we want the breweries pouring their own beer. They put great care and passion into making it, why would we want anyone else to pour it? To us, that opportunity to interact directly with the people behind the beer is paramount to understanding the product and the brand. Also, we’re licensed for sales to be taken off the premises. How many times have you tried a beer, loved it, and never seen it again? This time you can buy some extra to take home!

We’ll also be providing more than a beer list. We want to give you details for the beers you try, but we also want to give you information about the companies behind it, why they’re special, what they offer and how you can follow up with them after the festival to get the beers you enjoyed.

We’ll also hopefully have a special festival brew. A beer that we make in collaboration with one of our breweries, which you won’t be able to get anywhere else! What’s even better about this beer, is that it will be included in your ticket price.

We can’t wait to welcome you in September, buy your tickets early to make sure you can come along!
