1st May - 6th May

Briarbank Brewery’s first beer festival of the year will take place from Wednesday 1 May to Monday 6 May. With over 40 beers and ciders available from their outside bar, the event showcases beers from local and not so local breweries.

There will also be live music throughout the weekend, with performances from:

  • Friday 3 May 8pm – Old Skool
  • Saturday 4 May 8pm – Funk Shed
  • Sunday 5 May 8pm – Electric Velvet Club

The upstairs tap room will be open as normal, serving an array of drinks, including soft drinks, wines and spirits. And their food menu will be served until 9pm, so if you’re feeling a bit peckish, you’ll be able to grab a bite to eat with them too.
