100 beers on cask and keg, showcasing 32 British craft breweries.

We’ve gathered together some of the most exciting & innovative independent breweries to show off their beer over a three day festival.

There’ll be cask and keg bars throughout the brewery. Cask ales will all be served on hand pull, from properly chilled cellars. Thistly Cross will be bringing their cider bar down from Scotland for the duration of the festival and on Thursday and Friday Fabulous Flutes prosecco van will be serving draught sparkling wine all day.

Our kitchen will be serving a special festival menu for all sessions and there will also be a range of fantastic street food stalls from Earthworm Kitchen, Pappy's Texas BBQ and Scream for Pizza. Acoustic performances from local acts are scheduled throughout the festival and the Hawkshead shop will be open selling merchandise and ice cold cans from start to finish.
