Beer fest returns to beat January blues

THE Winter Ales Beer Festival will return to St George’s Hall later this month.

The festival will be filled with 200 different beers and ciders. Real Ale Events are the organisers behind the festival.

The organisers recently hosted another busy September St George’s Hall Beer Festival seeing more than 4,000 attendees. The same is expected for the Winter Ales Festival, with ticket sales already flying in.

The beer and cider selection are from all around the UK, as well as having Liverpool Organic Brewery hosting a hand pull bar.

There is the option of VIP tickets for those who want to beat the queues for tokens – VIP tickets include a reserved table on a stage in the Great Hall, unlimited real ales and ciders, alongside a token to be exchanged for a selected spirit at our indoor gin garden.

Events Director, Katie Jones, said: “We have a range of old favourites and new independent food vendors to offer you! Peninsula Pies, Liverpool Cake Company, and Liverpool Cheese Company are favourites that we invite year in year out. Straight from the Baltic Market, Skaus are debuting with us, selling their famous Scouse as the perfect winter warmer.”

The event will run over four sessions from Friday 26th to Saturday 27th January 2018. Tickets start from £7, including a souvenir half pint glass and programme to take away.

“People love this building and it’s great to be able to put on such an enjoyable event to ease us into 2018.” Added Katie.
