Portsmouth Beer Festival‘s winter sessions return to Portsmouth Guildhall for its fifth year on Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd December.
Beers will be featured from local breweries as well as from around the UK. A large variety of ales will feature to suit the season, but fear not there will still be a fine selection of the regular favourites to choose from. The Craft Beer bar will return much larger with a host of top quality draught beers from some of the country’s top breweries. The rise of craft beer has been phenomenal over the past few years, and it’s something we had to include in our offering.
With a wide-ranging audience demographic, they have also increased their range of booze. The Prosecco bar has been very well received in past events and will be returning to feature alongside the hugely popular Gin bar. Gin has also seen a huge rise in popularity in recent times and will return with different long mix drinks available as well as the good old-fashioned Gin & Tonic. The Gins will be served with all the matching botanicals and mixers with a Gin expert on hand to advise the perfect pours.
This year sees the Thunder Foundation returning as the chosen charity supported by the beer festival. The association is a charity committed to improving the lives of homeless and disadvantaged children in Kenya, by providing friendship, healthcare support and an extensive range of educational service.
The live entertainment line-up consists of local favourites The Silver Beatles confirmed for the Saturday 22nd December evening session and Bog Rolling Stones on Friday 21 evening session, with many more top names to be announced soon. There will also be the usual foodie favourites to help wash down the beers including a hog roast and BBQ.
Tickets are available in person at Meat and Barrel, The Belle Isle (Southsea), Portsmouth Guildhall Box Officer or online from the Portsmouth Guildhall website.
