Those who enjoy a good glass of ale will want to make sure to travel over to Liverpool at some point this year in honour of the host of beer festivals that will be taking place in Merseyside this year.
The Liverpool Beer Festival will kick off the festivities this coming Thursday and will run through until Sunday. It is well known as the largest beer event in the region and routinely sells out almost a month in advance.
The main sponsor of the event, Liverpool Organic Brewery, has also unleashed its own plan for many upcoming beer festivals including a September festival at St. George’s Hall. The upcoming festivities were organized by Campaign for Real Ale in Liverpool.
Geoff Edwards the chairman for Liverpool Organic Brewery said that they have decided to host more festivals due to the fact that real ale is slowly starting to become more popular overall in the Merseyside region. He also stated the location of the Liverpool beer Festival is very iconic due to its location and they expect it to continue to sell out in the future.
The upcoming weekend event will feature many speciality brews from all over the region such as Birkenhead’s Peerless, The Liverpool One Brewery, and the Runcorn Blueball.
Additional beer festivals are also scheduled to take place in April and October in Waterloo and in December at the Black-E in Liverpool. However the St. George’s Hall September event will likely be the largest festival in Liverpool this year.
