CRAFT ON THE COAST is the first beer and cider festival of it’s kind being held here in Bournemouth.
The Wight Bear Ale House and Brewhouse & Kitchen are coming together collaboratively to design and create a new exciting unique annual beer festival right here on the South coast. The focus this year is on the finest breweries and brewers from Dorset and the surrounding local area to showcase their craft keg, cask beer and cider all in one place.
This year the CRAFT ON THE COAST event is being held at Brewhouse and Kitchen Southbourne from 4pm Friday 29th September to 8pm Sunday 1st October in a separate ticketed only beer festival area which is sited in their (marquee covered) car park.
The locally based Cider wholesaler Fetch The Drinks will be bringing along a multitude of tasty ciders, plus a few of the cider producers will be holding talks and tastings over the three days.
All 3 sessions will include Meet the Brewer/Cider Producer Talks and we’ll also be introducing “Timed Tappings” of certain keg and cask beers that we’ve selected as the most interesting, mustn’t-miss beers which will be tapped at scheduled times in order that everyone gets the chance to try them. No FOMO here!
Tickets are available NOW at only £5 (plus card handling booking fee) for each session and can be purchased online HERE (or you can purchase them in person from a Bear Beer Handler at The Wight Bear).
Beer tokens are available for purchase when you arrive.
Full details of beer and cider lists, meet the brewer talks and timed tappings can be found on the Craft on the Coast Facebook page. The full printed programme with all the details and the beer list will be handed out on entry.
Due to capacity of the beer festival arena there are a limited number of tickets for each session so get yours now!
We’re really excited to be bringing you this Festival and look forward to seeing you this weekend.
