Burbage Beer Festival celebrates coming of age with a swift half, or 41

 

Anyone who fancies a swift half or 41 should head to Burbage this weekend for the annual beer festival.

The festival celebrates its 18th anniversary this year - if it was a person, it could finally get served.

The festival is held on the Red Lion Playing field, the home of the Burbage and Easton Royal Sports Club, which is situated at the bottom of East Sands, from 6.30pm until 11pm on Friday and Saturday, September 5 and 6.

Live music comes courtesy of Kennet Valley Brass and Humdinger on Friday, and Catch 22 on Saturday.

Between the drinking, a fancy dress cricket tournament will be held from 10.30am until 5.30pm on Saturday.

A weekend pass costs £7, which includes a souvenir half-pint beer glass. Tokens can be exchanged for guest beers and ales on both Friday and Saturday.

The liquid offering includes 23 ales, some from local breweries including Ramsbury Brewery, Three Castles in Pewsey and Stonehenge Ales of Netheravon, others from further afield, including the 5.5 percent XT5 from the XT brewery at Thame.

Eighteen ciders, including pear ciders, a strawberry blend, an apple and blackberry cider, are on offer.

A full list of guest ales and ciders, along with more information about the event, can be found at www.burbagefestival.co.uk
