Beer and cider festival returns to Bombed-Out Church

REAL Ale Events is bringing back its increasingly popular beer and cider festival to Liverpool’s Bombed-Out Church in April featuring up to 200 beers and ciders and an indoor gin garden.

This is the third time the event has been hosted under the transparent, clear-roofed marquee, housed in between the walls of a Liverpool landmark and surrounding gardens where 3,500 people attended the festival last year.

Beers from breweries not commonly seen in Merseyside will be on offer, including a range of stouts, porters, IPA’s, wheat beers, bitters, milds, pale ales, fruit beers.  Alongside the traditional beers, there will also be exciting brews from up and coming experimental breweries.

There’ll be a diverse cider offering keeping up with the surge in demand for fruity and unusual ciders but the traditional cloudy apple ciders and crisp perries will also make an appearance in the festival line up.

The indoor gin garden will be serving a range of fruity and unusual gins with accompanying garnishes and flavoured tonic.

Food will be covered by Crackpot catering and Liverpool Cheese Company who will be supplying hot and cold options over the weekend.

The event will run over six sessions from Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th April. Tickets start from £5, including a souvenir half pint glass and programme to take away. There is a limited discount code for Independent Liverpool card holders for all sessions.

Events Director, Katie Jones, says, ‘We had an amazing response to our beer and cider festival at the Bombed Out Church two years ago and we can’t wait to return, bigger and better than ever!”
