The all important beer list!

The festival has brought together beers from around CAMRA's Merseyside and Cheshire Region which we hope will delight you, from straw coloured pale ales through to dark and mysterious stouts. The beers will be available when they are available ... and gone when they are gone! The full list of beers is as below.

The beers will be available from (at least) 10 hand-pulls (A to J outside and Y to Z inside) in three (or more) rounds. Depending on how quickly the beers sell, it is anticipated that the rounds will run as follows:

  1. Opening – From Friday – possibly into Saturday
  2. Possibly Friday – certainly Saturday
  3. Possibly Saturday – probably Sunday as needed by demand

Sunday update: Beer has sold faster than anticipated so we have added yet more beers from where we could obtain them at short notice. These are listed as a round 4, to ensure that there is enough beer to keep you happy.
