Chorlton Beer Festival

chorlton beer fest logo 2015

The 12th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will be held on 7th, 8th & 9th July 2016 at St Clement's Church on Edge Lane in Chorlton-cum-Hardy.

Run in conjunction with St Clements, the festival began in 2005 to raise funds for the repair of the church buildings, but has grown to become a firm fixture in the Chorlton social calendar and the branch's premier festival. The festival continues to raise funds for the upkeep of the church complex which offers a wide range of meeting places serving the Chorlton community.

The festival takes place in the buildings and grounds of the Church. 2016 will see the addition of a third cask ale bar and a new bar selling key-keg conditioned beers. Expect 100+ beer plus one of Manchester's largest cider & perry bars with over 50 traditional ciders & perries and the World Beers bar with a great range of bottled beers.

There's live music in the grounds and a range of quality street food available at each session.

Trafford and Hulme CAMRA and St Clements Church are pleased to confirm that the 9th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will take place on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July 2013.

The festival will feature its largest range of cask ales ever with over 90 planned. There will be the usual mix of established festival favourites, the best from local breweries and a selection of carefully chosen featured beers from around the country. There has been an explosion of new breweries in the area over the last couple of years and there are now 66 breweries located within 20 miles of the festival. 

For the second year in a row, the festival will be hosting the North West Round of the Champion Speciality Beer Of Britain Competition - visitors can look forward to sampling the best cask ales with unusual ingredients - fruit, spices, honey and whatever else brewers choose to brew with. The finalists are voted for by CAMRA members across the North West with the top eight coming to Chorlton where they will be judged by a panel made up of trained CAMRA tasters, local publicans and celebrities. The winning beer will go forward to be judged against the winners of rounds across the country at the Great British Beer Festival in London.

Alongside the cask ales, there will be a choice of around 50 traditional ciders and perries and a large range of bottled continental beers from some of Europe's finest traditional breweries.
