    Spring Beer Fest Update


    It is with great sadness and not a decision we have taken lightly, we will be postponing our Spring Beer Fest.

    We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and developments and feel at this time it would be irresponsible or us to go ahead with the festival. Our main concern is for the health and safety of our team and the community as a whole.

    We will continue to monitor the developments and we still plan to run our Beer Fest in July.

    At this current time The Beer Hall will remain open, this is subject to change as we are watching the government advice.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and are grateful for all your continued support.
