Now that we have all recovered a little, why don’t we sit back and enjoy some figures from the runaway success that was the Portsmouth Beer Festival. Over the course of 3 sold out sessions: 3,600 avid beer drinkers turned up to consume over 12,000 pints of ale, 3,000 pints of cider and a very respectable 1,500 bottled beers. On top of this, the fine folk of this city managed to raise over £1,200.00 for the cancer awareness charity Feel Yourself and for Samuels Fund which raises funds for local boy Samuel Deakin-Mant who suffers from cerebral palsy.
If you enjoyed The Portsmouth Beer Festival as much as we did, then be sure to visit them at Portsmouth’s main event this summer; the much anticipated Victorious Festival on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th of August (tickets available here). Finally we would like to extend a Strong Island sized congratulation to Ben Mills and his team for bringing this highly successful event to life.
