Chorlton Beer Festival

chorlton beer fest logo 2015

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.

Mark Dade receives the award from Heather Airlie
 

The Beer of the Festival for Chorlton Beer Festival 2011 as voted for by the festival visitors, was Rum Porter from Newton Heath's Boggart Hole Clough Brewery. The award was presented to brewer Mark Dade after an interesting and entertaining visit to the brewery. No new-comer to accolades, Mark has already won 16 similar awards for the classic smooth porter with added rum, including Beer of the Festival at Leeds and Peterborough.

The day was completed by a few beers and a buffet at the Micro Bar in the Arndale Market Hall, the Boggart tap.

Bollington Stout ClementThe 7th Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival once again saw drinkers descend on St Clements Church in their thousands, drinking the festival dry 45 minutes before planned closing on Saturday night.

Organisers ordered 20% more beer, cider & perry than in 2010 but even torrential rain on opening night, Friday 8th July, could not drive the Chorlton community away.  Over 3000 pints of ale & 800 of traditional cider & perry were sold on Friday alone, at a rate of almost 15 pints a minute.

Bootleg Stout ClementVisitors had the choice of 40 locally brewed beers from the CAMRA LocAle bar plus a further 22 sourced from outside of the local area on the second bar opposite. The LocAle selection included festival specials "Clement Summer" from Macclesfield's Bollington Brewery and "STout CLEMENT", brewed by the Bootleg Brewing Company just 200m down St Clements Road at The Horse & Jockey pub.
