Hall & Woodhouse Beer Festival 2014

After a hugely successful event in June 2016, the Hall & Woodhouse Beer Festival returns on June 24, celebrating Hall & Woodhouse Founders’ Day and raising money for the company’s chosen charity Together for Short Lives.

The festival will take place at the new brewery in Blandford St Mary, Dorset, where visitors will be able to sample all the Hall & Woodhouse beers, plus more from local microbreweries/

There will also be plenty of other activities, live music, as well as food for all the family. The little ones will be entertained with face painting and a ferret tank, while grown-ups can sit back and enjoy a pint or get involved in games such as beer pong.

Visitors will be able to chat to head brewer, Toby Heasman, take a look around the brewery and learn about the rich brewing history of Hall & Woodhouse and its award-winning Badger Ales.

With two new limited edition brews on the scene at Hall & Woodhouse, the beer festival is the perfect opportunity to try something new. The zingy American Venture is the first in the limited edition series that sees the Badger brand take inspiration from great brews from around the world, with the first a refreshing West Coast style beer.

The Hall & Woodhouse 2017 Founders’ Ale — the basil-infused Mysterious Mer-Chicken — will also be on the bars, with only a limited batch brewed.

This year has seen a new line-up of cask ales available in Hall & Woodhouse’s pubs across the South East, and visitors will be able to try these and their bottled favourites on cask, as well as special edition brews from the pilot brewery.

There will also be beers from the likes of Timothy Taylor, Downton Brewery, Hop Back Brewery, Palmers and 8 Arches Brewery.

This year’s beer festival takes place from 11am until 10pm, with all proceeds raised donated to Together for Short Lives.
