Culcheth Beer Festival

Postby Sparkyman » Mon Sep 02, 2013 9:58 pm

The third annual Culcheth Beer Festival is taking place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th of September at Culcheth Sports Club (The DATEN).
Organised by the Rotary Club, all for Charity.
For full details see the posters/flyers around the village (as I think the wife has binned mine).
Beer, Food, Music, what more could you wish for? (Well there is one thing but I don't think it's on offer at the event).

Been twice this weekend (Hic) and again it was great - however the music (again) is terrible and lacks variety - and a performer under 65!

Fantastic time was had by me (and hopefully everyone else).
It has improved year on year and I now think they've got it bang on.
Beer was great, food was great.
I went Saturday at 4:30 there was a jazz band on which is not really my cup of tea but they were fine in my opinion. About 7 a guitarist/singer came on (he was about 40) with a lady backing singer/percussionist (and I have learnt from experience the danger in speculating about a lady's age so it is not happening here) and I thought they were pretty good.
After all, I went to a beer festival, not Glastonbury.

Loved the jazz band too. However, when we arrived at 7pm on Saturday, ALL cider was sold out (appreciate its a BEER festival). As was the best ale! By 9pm our choice was very limited. Oh well, all for charidee I guess

It's going to happen, they have a fine line to play with.
Any pub would just put another barrel on and start selling again the day after.
The Rotary can't do that, they have one barrel of each and if it's not sold it goes down the drain.
Ideal scenario is that at lasties on Saturday the last pint is taken from every barrel but it's not going to happen.
The punter numbers were up this year which obviously contributed to some beers running out a bit early but:-
"It's all for charity" and I hope a good time was had by all.

just got home from 2014 Beer Festival.
The music was awesome and well worth the admission ticket.........and some more
The beer was flat......... on the first night, and it all tasted the same. Was it out of date ? Was it too warm ?
They desperately need to get it pressurised with some gas or the beer and the event will die a death.
The hog roast was ..............not to everyones liking or price range
:? :? :?

I enjoyed the festival, good beer,food,music and company, however:-

After putting my commemorative glass in the cupboard next to last years glass (and the glass from the year before that and the year before that), it was obvious that the glasses this year were pint to top, not oversized!!!
"CAMRA policy is beers to be served in oversized, lined glasses."

I cannot believe it, I demand an explanation from the Rotarians.
