Thousands expected at St George's Hall beer festival
A major beer festival being held in Liverpool next month is expected to attract more than 5,000 visitors after organisers confirmed that one session has already sold out.
The four-day event, which takes place at St George’s Hall from September 26 to 29, will showcase as many as 300 real ales and ciders from more than 100 different breweries across the UK, including many sourced locally.
It has been organised by Liverpool Organic Brewery, which will display more than 20 of its own ales, and is split across three morning and three afternoon sessions, as well as an all-day session on Sunday.
All tickets for Friday evening have now been sold, while both Saturday sessions are also said to be approaching sell-out.
Mark Hensby, managing director of Liverpool Organic Brewery, said: “Demand across all four days has surpassed expectations and we have been thrilled with the response from the Merseyside region and beyond.
“Friday night is now sold out and both Saturday sessions are not far behind. There is clearly a strong appetite for experiencing quality produced, locally sourced beers and ciders.
“A large number of customers come from around the UK, with some even travelling from as far away as Europe and the United States to sample the festival.
“We have held a number of successful festivals in Waterloo and we also have one coming up at The Black E, but St George’s Hall represents a whole new level and this will certainly be our largest event to date.
“However, our visitors can rest assured that beer resources won’t run dry and we will certainly have enough supply on tap to keep serving well beyond Sunday.”
