Battlesteads Beer Festival returns for 7th year

Battlesteads Beer Festival returns for 7th year

One of the highlights of the year for beer lovers across the North East, the Battlesteads Beer Festival, is set to return for the 7th year in July 2017.

The four-day celebration in Wark, Northumberland, will run from Thursday 20 – Sunday 23 July and will feature more than 20 beers, ciders and foreign lagers to try.

Hosted by Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant, the festival has been growing year on year, attracting hundreds of attendees looking to try a wide selection of beers from across the world from straw-coloured pale ales and ruby-red beers to fruity ciders and characterful bitters that pack a punch.

Entertainment will be provided with live music from The Stax Brothers, The Mudskippers, Alive and Kicking and The Happycats, while last year’s popular gin bar will be returning alongside a brand-new Prosecco bar.

Katie Meyrick-Scott, general manager of Battlesteads, said: “Over the past six years our beer festival has gone from strength to strength, attracting more people every year. The introduction of our speciality gin bar last year proved popular with guests wanting to try something different, so this year we’ve added another exciting option with the new Prosecco bar set to bring some added sparkle to the weekend. The Battlesteads Beer Festival is a real community event that brings everyone together, and we can’t wait to welcome even more guests this year.”

Admission to the beer festival is free on Thursday (6pm-11pm) and Sunday (12pm until the beer runs out). On Friday and Saturday tickets are £4 (12pm – 11pm) and all proceeds will go to the Great North Air Ambulance. A free transport service from Hexham is also available on Friday and Saturday.
