St Helens Summer Beer Festival takes over Mill Street Barracks on Friday 28 July (6pm –11pm) and Saturday 29 July (2pm – 11pm), with the venue considered to be one of the most haunted buildings in the country.
Ales, ciders, food and live entertainment will be available. For the first time a selection of gins and bottles of prosecco – not forgetting other spirits will also feature.
Event organiser, Gary Wright – head brewer of Rainford’s George Wright Brewery and co-owner of the hugely successful real ale pub, The Talbot in St Helens town centre – said:
“The St Helens Beer Festival will see 30 real ales featuring a stunning selection of local, regional and national award winning breweries. We will have a great range of real ale favourites plus some surprise beers and rare selections we have been able to bring especially for the festival. Breweries will include: Vocation Brewery; Sara Hughes Brewery; Abbeydale Brewery and Mordue Brewery, to name just a few! “
“Last November’s sell-out event was excellent and raised a lot of money for the Steve Prescott Foundation – so it is very exciting to be leading the first St Helens Summer Beer Festival this year and it promises to be our biggest festival yet.”
Martin Blondel, speaking on behalf of the Steve Prescott Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be part of this great event again. Last November’s event was a phenomenal atmosphere throughout the weekend and I’m sure this year will be just as good – if not better!
“Thanks to everyone involved in making this happen!”
