Bière, birra, bjor – but it’s not all beer!


Not long to wait now!

The 2018 Knutsford Beer Festival takes place on Friday 20th April and Saturday 21st April at Egerton Youth Club, Mereheath Lane, Knutsford.

It promises to be a spectacular celebration of beer, gin and prosecco – plus live music from Fine Lines, Merry Hell and Bad Dukes and Beggars.

The event will serve up a broad selection of beers, with the cask ales primarily coming from Cheshire breweries such as Tatton Brewery, Dunham Massey Brewing Co, Mobberley Brewhouse and Red Willow.

A wide selection of styles will be available – from traditional bitter to spiced imperial stout. Seven Brothers, Tempest, Beartown and Track Brewery will be showcasing their beers.

Highlights include a brand new beer from the multi award winning Titanic Brewery and, for the first time ever at Knutsford Beer Festival there will be keg beer!

Organisers said: “Forget the dreaded 1970s kegs, these beers represent the cutting-edge of UK brewing.”

To really let the festival ‘be-gin’ this year, Knutsford’s Dexter and Jones will be hosting a gin bar with the ever popular Manchester Gin, Hunters Cheshire Gin and Forest Gin.

And, no festival in Cheshire would be complete without the fizz factor – so prosecco will be provided by the Boxx (a renovated horsebox with vintage charm).

Knutsford Beer Festival is all about community and raising money for local charities which this year include Egerton Youth Club, Knutsford & District Scouts and also Knutsford and District Royal British Legion in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of end of WW1.

The Knutsford Beer Festival has once again teamed up with the Knutsford & District Scouts to provide a mini-bus service to this year’s event, with volunteer Scout leaders driving festival-goers from the town centre to the event.

The bus will operate between Knutsford Bus Station and Egerton Youth Club, ferrying patrons to and from the event throughout each session.

A small voluntary donation of £1 will be requested from users of the service, with profits from this going to the Scouts.
