O’Hagan’s BBQ Back for 2015!

Great news!  We’re pleased to announce that we have the multi award winning O’Hagan’s sausages and BBQ back again this May!

O’Hagan’s award winning sausages are handcrafted daily using the finest fresh ingredients and have absolutely no mechanically recovered meat, genetically modified ingredients, colourings, preservatives or any other artificial additives.  They also feature the popular sausages made with Sixpenny IPA.  We’ve worked with these guys at previous events and can honestly say their barbecue is the most perfect accompaniment to a few fine beers.

One of the highlights of the beer fest back in 2014, we can’t wait to welcome them back!
