Save the date – we’ve started planning next year’s beer festival

Five thousand pints, four hundred campers, and a record turnout. What a festival it was and so much fun and laughter on the field.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the same without you all, our friends. Plus, the army of volunteers who work so hard to make it all possible. So, it’s a great big thank you to you all.

It was, without doubt, our biggest and best festival yet. Which was in no small part helped on by the most fantastic weather. We also hope you made the most of the brilliant catering, along with the most magnificent music.

Once again, the tug of war proved popular. But try as we might to keep the winning title local, it was, in the end, the Baa-Baas from Inverness who finished triumphantly.

All-in-all it sure was thirsty work. A point proved by the fact that you drank the bar dry late on Saturday. No doubt we’ll be ordering even more beer next time around.

So, if you enjoyed it this year. Or you couldn’t make it, but like the sound of what you hear, then save the date and we look forward to seeing you all next year.

Put the date in your diary.

28-29 June

Thanks, and enjoy the summer.

Wincle Beer Festival – get ready for Friday

What are you doing at the weekend? Are you coming to the festival?

Wincle Beer Festival

29-30 June 2018

There is now less than a week to run before Wincle beer festival gets underway. The anticipation is building, the marquee will soon be up and folk will then descend for a fab few days of merrymaking and fun.

The festivities are all the more poignant for us this year. They mark our 10th-anniversary celebration and we can think of no better way to enjoy it than a sun-drenched weekend with you – our friends!

This quintessentially English fixture has grown over the past few years and is now a regular favourite for many people. They tell us that it’s the best place around to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, live music, and a great offering of fine beers, a well-stocked bar, and wonderful food.

Of course, it just wouldn’t be the same without our enigmatic location. We’re blessed to be nestled here on the edge of the Peak District and on the bank of the River Dane.

So, old friends and new – you are all welcome.

The fun starts on Friday evening at 6.00pm until late. And then again on Saturday around midday.

We can’t wait to get started.

One week to go – Wincle Beer Festival next weekend

 

 

The bands are booked and we’ve ordered the beer.

Wincle Beer Festival

29-30 June 2018

Foot stomping should be the order of the day when our first band kicks off next Friday evening.

We have a wonderful and eclectic mix of live performances lined-up. It’s a real mix of styles and genres with everything from Irish folk, through to blues and our not to be missed headline band – the River Chickens.

As with any festival, it’s all about the people and the atmosphere. And we think that Wincle’s combination of distinctive rural fun is just about the bee’s knees.

The beer will be flowing. There will also be a range of gin, wine, Prosecco, cider and soft drinks. Not to mention some finger licking good food to keep us all going.

Here ‘s the line-up

Friday: Music from 6:00 pm

Murphy’s Marbles

Riverside Blues Band

Saturday: Music all afternoon and into the evening

Squeezy Pete and his band

Josh’s Band

Silver Back

Black Cat Blues

River Chickens

So, why not make your plans, put a little time aside and join us on the field for what promises to be a fantastic festival for all the family.

We’d love to see you here.

Just two weeks to Wincle Beer Festival – make your plans and arrange your transport

The lure of great music, good food and the fantastic beer seems irresistible. And, being in what has to be the most idyllic locations in the country, Wincle has certainly found favor with those who appreciate the simple joys of summer.

Wincle Beer Festival

29-30 June 2018

The momentum is building and the campsite is now fully booked for our festival weekend.

We’ve been inundated this year by good folk who want to come and camp for Wincle’s annual weekend of beer and fun on the field. The response has been tremendous and now all of the pitches are gone. But, while we don’t have space for any more tents, there’ll still be lots to enjoy and plenty of beer for everyone who comes along.

We may not be as big or famous as Glastonbury Festival. But 2018 is a ‘fallow’ year for them, so perhaps it’s a good job we’ve planned for our festival to be the best yet.

If the past few weeks are anything to go by the weather is going to be just perfect. But, rain or shine, we think we’ve now got everything covered and we can’t wait to get things started.

Bar opening times

Friday:          5:00 pm-midnight

Saturday       Midday – midnight

Watch out for more details to follow next week.

The countdown is underway and it is now just four weeks until Wincle Beer Festival.

Wincle Beer Festival

29-30 June 2018

Each year we plan for things to be better than before. This year we’ve invested in making the festival experience the best yet with an all-weather marque. That means, rain or shine, nothing will stop the beer flowing.

Leaving nothing to chance we tested out the ‘beer tent; at Wincle Fete last weekend. It is safe to say that things are now really coming together.

  • Great beer
  • Good music
  • Fantastic food
  • Fun on the field
  • Camping

As ever we’ll be offering a great family experience in a beautiful, riverside location, right outside the brewery doors. With a huge range of beers to add a little fun to the weekend.

So, if you haven’t done so already, mark the date in your diary and we hope you’ll come and join us.
