Looking Forward to December!

Excitement is building for the next hosting of the Portsmouth Beer Festival back for it’s fifth year at Portsmouth Guildhall on Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd December 2018

Beers will be featured from local breweries as well as from around the UK. A large variety of ales will feature to suit the season, but fear not there will still be a fine selection of the regular favourites to choose from.

The Craft Beer bar will return much larger with a host of top quality draught beers from some of the country’s top breweries. “The rise of craft beer has been phenomenal over the past few years, and it’s something we had to include in our offering.  We like to be able to offer all the traditional hallmarks of a beer festival, but with the addition of the modern expectations of the discerning beer drinkers.  The choice nowadays is huge and we like to celebrate that at Portsmouth Beer Festival as much as possible”.

With a wide-ranging audience demographic, we’ve stretched our range to cater for a big variance in tastes.  The Prosecco bar has been very well received in past events and will be returning to feature alongside the hugely popular Gin bar.  Gin has also seen a huge rise in popularity in recent times and will return with different long mix drinks available as well as the good old fashioned Gin & Tonic.  The Gins will be served with all the matching botanicals and mixers with a Gin expert on hand to advise the perfect pours!

This year sees the Thunder Foundation returning as the chosen charity supported by the beer festival. The association is a charity committed to improving the lives of homeless and disadvantaged children in Kenya, by providing friendship, healthcare support and an extensive range of educational service.

The live entertainment line-up consists of local favourites The Silver Beatles confirmed for the Saturday 22nd December evening session and Bog Rolling Stones on Friday 21st evening session, with many more top names to be announced soon.

There will also be the usual foodie favourites to help wash down the beers including a hog roast and BBQ!
