Beer lovers flock in their thousands to annual festival
With four bars serving from 11am until 11pm, and live music and entertainment throughout the day, revellers were treated to a wide selection of beers, ales, stouts and lagers to sample.
Alongside St Austell Brewery’s own award winning beers including Tribute, Proper Job and Korev Lager, there were 20 new and limited edition ales brewed by the St Austell team just for the festival.
The Festival is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the St Austell Brewery Charitable Trust, which has raised well over £500,000 for South West charities and good causes over recent years.
Jeremy Mitchell, St Austell Brewery’s Marketing and Communications Director, said: “This year’s Festival was a huge success with an amazing turnout, we are hoping to top last year’s record amount raised for the St Austell Brewery Charitable Trust to support local charities, which is what the event is all about. It was fantastic to see people turn out in such numbers to support the festival and to help raise money for so many good causes.
“There was a great atmosphere in the Brewery and the crowd really responded to the bands and the huge selection of beers. We had people queuing from 9am and the whole event was at capacity within a few hours of opening. I’d like to thank all the staff who gave up their time to run the festival, to our generous sponsors and to the many breweries who donated beer for the event.”
The Brewery announced today that the 2016 Celtic Beer Festival will be on the 26th November. For more information about St Austell Brewery visit www.staustellbrewery.co.uk
