What better way to celebrate the start of Summer than at Portsmouth Beer Festival’s second annual bash at Portsmouth Guildhall on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th May 2015.
Co organiser Ben Miles says, “We’re proud that The Portsmouth Beer Festival is back for a second year after the sell-out weekend in May and December 2014. A celebration of craft beers and cask ales, alongside a selection of ciders, draught beer and delicious street food all set to the backdrop of more fantastic live entertainment including the Southsea Alternative Choir, Bog Rolling Stones and Elasticated Waste Band with many more to be announced soon!
Beers will be featured from local breweries as well as from around the UK. A large variety of pale ales and golden beers will feature to suit the season, but fear not there will still be a fine selection of darker beers on offer too, something for all tastes! Expect to see beers from the likes of Ilkley, Dark Star and Tiny Rebel as well as local brewers The Brewhouse, Havant and Irving & Co amongst many, many more.
Our popular pub games room will feature again, and proceeds will be donated once again to two great charities; The Rowans Hospice and Samuels Fund. The Saturday evening session will feature event more prize giveaways plus a traditional meat raffle with a modern twist sponsored by the fine fellows at Bransbury Park Butchers.
Ben adds “We were overwhelmed with how much people enjoyed it last year along with our Christmas event and we can’t wait to do it all again!”
