Woolston set for Beer Festival

September 12, 2017

Tickets are now on sale for the 2017 Woolston Beer Festival, organised by Southern Hampshire CAMRA. The festival is being held on the 29th and 30th of September at Pear Tree Church Hall, a short walk from Woolston Train Station, and will feature over 30 real ales, showcasing both local and national breweries.
This year’s festival is being supported by two local micropubs – Olaf’s Tun and Caskaway – with Olaf’s Tun sponsoring the festival glasses, and Caskaway providing a selection of international bottled beers. For the cider fans, the cider bar features a small but diverse range of real ciders. ‘Home-made’ hot food will be available, along with the normal bar snacks of crisps, nuts, and pork scratchings.
Two of the festival’s three sessions will also feature best in local musical talent, with Monkey See Monkey Do taking to the stage during the Friday Evening session, and singer-songwriter Just Millie performing on the Saturday evening. The Saturday lunchtime session is a quiet session, albeit with the chance to take part in the now traditional pub quiz.
Southampton’s beer festivals have a tradition of supporting local charities, and this year’s festival charity is Communicare, who play a key role in reaching out to lonely and isolated people in the Southampton area.
Tickets for all three sessions are priced at £6, and are the available online via the festival website , or from venues across Southampton – Olaf’s Tun Craft Ale Bar, Caskaway, The Humble Plumb, and Bitter Virtue.
