Local brewer Bath Ales has announced that it will host its first beer festival in celebration of Beer Day Britain on Saturday 15th June, at their state-of-the-art brewery near Bath.
Hare Fest will take place at Hare Brewery, Bath Ales’ state-of-the-art brewery which opened its doors in May 2018.
A variety of ales, stouts and lagers – including old favourites and new brews – will be on offer for festival goers to enjoy, as well as food stalls and live music.
There will also be brewery tours running throughout the day.
Bars will be serving Bath Ales’ own award-winning beers Gem, Lansdown and Sulis and a selection of guest ales from St Austell Brewery.
There will also be limited-edition small batch beers brewed for the festival, including the return of an old favourite – Rare Hare.
Ticket holders will also get the chance to try two of Bath Ales newly relaunched keg beers, Cubic and Monterey.
Tickets to Hare Fest cost £12 per person and are available to pre-book online (www.bathales.com/harefest) or purchase on the door. £1 from each ticket will be donated to Bath Ales’ Charitable Trust, which raises money for local organisations and individuals in need.
Children will be admitted to the festival for free and there will be family-friendly entertainment throughout the afternoon, including garden games and face painting.
The focus of the day is the national Cheers to Beer (#cheerstobeer) toast at 7pm, which is marked annually, by millions of beer lovers across the UK and beyond.
