Chorlton Beer Festival

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.

The 8th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival came through fears that the worst weather in its eight year history would keep the people of Chorlton away to end up selling more beer, cider and perry than ever before.

A full day of torrential rain meant that as the festival opened, parts of the grounds of St Clements Church were under several inches of water. A week of beer disturbing storms leading up to the festival had already meant the cellar team from Trafford& Hulme CAMRA used all their skills to get the 82 cask ales ready for serving and then volunteers from the church braved the elements to preparing the grounds for opening time.

Judging PanelThe festival started with the judging of the North West Round of the Champion Specialty Beer Of Britain Competition with judges including John Leech MP and the appropriately named Reverend Ken Flood joining local publicans, journalists and trained beer tasters on the 9 man blind tasting panel. The 8 finalists in the competition selected by online vote of 16,000 CAMRA members across the North West included a cask conditioned Pilsner, beers made with honey, a German style Alt bier, ginger beers, cloudy wheat beers and a fruit flavoured mild.
