"Since 2017, the festival has focused solely on dark beer. Introducing wild and sour beer into the festival format ensures that it’s as accessible as possible, as we bring together two of our

Festival session times are as follows: Friday (Nov 22) 6pm-10:30pm; and Saturday (Nov 23): 12pm-4.30pm and 6pm-10.30pm.

As well as the beer, GamezstationUK will be parking their 12-seater gaming van outside the Old Flax Store for the evening festival sessions.
