Chorlton Beer Festival 2016

posted 17 Jun 2016, 11:08 by St Clement Church

The 12th annual Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will take place from Thursday 7th July until Saturday 9th July 2016.

The festival will feature its largest range of cask ales ever with over 95 planned. There will be the usual mix of established festival favourites, the best from local breweries and a selection of carefully chosen featured beers from around the country. There has been an explosion of new breweries in the area over the last couple of years and there are now 66 breweries located within 20 miles of the festival. 

The festival will again be hosting the North West Round of the Champion Speciality Beer Of Britain Competition - visitors can look forward to sampling the best cask ales with unusual ingredients - fruit, spices, honey and whatever else brewers choose to brew with. The finalists are voted for by CAMRA members across the North West with the top eight coming to Chorlton where they will be judged by a panel made up of trained CAMRA tasters, local publicans and celebrities. The winning beer will go forward to be judged against the winners of rounds across the country at the Great British Beer Festival in London.
Alongside the cask ales, there will be a choice of around 50 traditional ciders and perries and a large range of bottled continental beers from some of Europe's finest traditional breweries. 

Thursday evening will be a preview session and entry is by advanced ticket only. The preview will be limited to 300 people only. Tickets are available from The Beech on Beech Rd, Chorlton. The entrance on Friday and Saturday is the same as always – please pay at the gate: £10 entrance charge includes a free commemorative pint glass, program, and a £4 beer voucher.

Jesus, in the garden of Gethsemane, said to his disciples, “Could you not stay awake with me for one hour?”

On this most solemn of days we hear of our Lord’s Passion, we kneel at the foot of the cross in awe and wonder, we pray for the world he died to save, and we incorporate ourselves into these saving acts by sharing in the Body broken on the Cross.
