Marston’s Brewery is throwing open its gates to local people for Cask Ale Week to celebrate all that is great about local beer, food, music and comedy.
The Beertown Brewery Bash will take place on Saturday 23rd September from 4pm to 7pm in the brewery yard and the visitor’s centre DE14.
Running from 21st September to 1st October 2017, Cask Ale Week is an opportunity to celebrate everything that is great about Britain’s National Drink by encouraging drinkers to visit pubs for beer and food matching, pub quizzes, meet the brewers, beer festivals and much more.
Beers on tap will include eight craft beers and ten cask ales from seven different breweries including the Marston’s Brewery, DE14, Freedom and Tower Brewery with cider from the Kingston Press Hut.
Local artisan street food will be on offer from Speedough Pizza and Yes Chef Gourmet Burgers. There will also be merchandise and beers available to take home and enjoy.
The stage will be rocking with live entertainment from local musicians, Shallow Waters and Lapels with some stand-up comedy by Snap Comedy in Birmingham.
Jo Wyke said: “We are really proud to be based in Burton as the spiritual home of brewing in the UK so we want to celebrate all that is fantastic about this town for Cask Ale Week. We are lining up a range of great beers and local foods accompanied by entertainment in the form of live music and comedy.
“Sometimes when you live in a town you don’t visit or appreciate what is on your doorstep: our Victorian brewery setting is very special and we are looking forward to showing it off. We want people to see and enjoy what Burton has to offer and have a really good knees up at the same time!”
Tickets will be just £5 per head available at the entrance on the day or beforehand from the Brewery Shop on Shobnall Road and will include two drinks vouchers (each equal to half a pint) and a limited-edition glass.
The proceeds from the day will all be donated to the Burton Breweries Charitable Trust, an organisation committed to supporting projects that make a lasting difference to disadvantaged young people in the communities of East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire.
There will only be limited parking available at the brewery.
