Chorlton Beer Festival

The 15th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will be held on 11th - 13th July 2019 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. 2019 will see the festival focus on local breweries and community events.  Expect 60+ beer plus one of Manchester's largest cider & perry bars with over 50 traditional ciders & perries.

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.

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.
