Last Orders For Ealing Beer Festival Organisers
New team will take over after this year's event
This year’s Ealing Beer Festival will be the 11th - and final one - for organiser, Graham Harrison.
He says : ''The Ealing Beer Festival has gone from strength to strength. When I started in Ealing Town Hall we had around 3000 visitors, last year we had more than 11,500. With my deputy, Alex Kovacevic, also stepping down after 12 festivals, it is time to pass the baton on to a new team''
The Festival is taking place in Walpole Park, Mattock Lane from Wednesday 6th - Saturday 9th July and promises to be bigger and better than ever with over 500 real ales, ciders, perries, foreign beers and wines available.
There will be an extensive range of cider from areas including Wales, the West County, Kent. Bedfordshire and Slough! We will also have Scottish cider with the Muckletoon Rosie dry and Black Betty cider and blackcurrant produced just up the road from Gretna Green.
The foreign bar will feature bottled beers from some of the smaller breweries of Europe and the USA. This year includes Denmark & Sweden as well as Belgium, Germany, France and for the first time Poland. There will also be draught beer from the Netherlands in addition to the bottles.
In the beer marquee is Cheddar Deli who are based locally and provide British, Irish, French and Continental dairy, meat and delicatessen foods. Merry Berry chocolate are also returning under their new name Oddfellows, along with Pipers Crisps with their unique selection of flavours. A beer festival would not be complete without Hog Roast which will also be available next to the food tent.
Entertainment will be in the music tent each evening at the festival with the Hanwell Ukulele Group on Wednesday, Jim Wilson on Thursday and the Midnight Trio on Friday.
