Brewfest, the UK’s first blogger-curated beer, coffee and music festival, is to be hosted by Arundel Brewery from January 24-26 next year.
With 38 guest beers to enjoy, the event will see James Walsh, of Starsailor, headline the music stage.
The beers have been picked by beer bloggers from around the UK, who have chosen limited editions, must-tries, and must-haves. The first round announcement of breweries includes North Brewing Co, Pipeline Brewing Co, Atom, Turning Point, Vault City, Burning Sky, Little Monster, Pressure Drop, Pastore, Cloak & Dagger, Glasshouse, Burnt Mill, and a special collaboration for Brewfest by Lost Pier and Vibrant Forest. There is also traditional ale available chosen by CAMRA members.
The festival will be split into four sessions: Friday night (6pm-10pm), Saturday afternoon (noon-4pm), Saturday evening (6pm-10pm), and a free ‘first come first served’ session on Sunday (noon-4pm).
Guests will receive a commemorative glass plus a complimentary first beer pour for the price of their £12 ticket. Beers will be sold via a token system — ten for £20. A driver’s ticket will also be available, offering a complimentary soft drink for £5. There is also a limited-edition run of tickets for those wishing to buy ‘All You Can Drink’ wristbands for £50.
Local street food favourites Mann & Moore — Michelin-trained chefs cooking American barbecue — and vegetarian favourites Halloumilicious will provide food, along with The Brewhouse Project’s very-own pizza and caf é offering. Special coffee events are planned with Edgecumbs roastery, including masterclasses and roasting sessions.
