There were only 150 tickets up for grabs though, and of course, you had to be in the know to nab one. A select, but perfectly balanced choice of ales and ciders were available and all of this was backed with good banter and some really nice live music.
It was chilled and, once the rain at the beginning tailed off, it was a balmy Spring evening that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Reasonably priced and community led, this is exactly the sort of event I enjoy supporting. And the samosas were good too.
That may be all over, but now we can confidently look to the future, safe in the knowledge that the full Western Park Beer Festival is back! Oh yes, 19th and 20th August, just a fiver a ticket including your pint glass. Oh and there is a special family session on Saturday afternoon so you can bring the kids along for some family-friendly fun between 12pm and 6pm – entry for kids is free.
|For when the excitement gets too much. Not really.
There will be over 40 firkins of real ale and craft beers, Flamin’ Mo serving up his woodfired pizza and much much more besides. So do me a favour, don’t miss out on this one, huh? Get it in your diary and come and support these lovely people and their super lovely venture.
