‘Tis the saison for a post-lockdown pint

The Bristol Craft Beer Festival is back for another year and there will be plenty of pints available, including one brew exclusively for the festival. The team behind the festival has paired up with Bristol brewery, Wiper and True, to create this year’s limited edition brew – Festival Saison to Celebrate.

This festival on Bristol’s harbourside is all about celebrating some of the best of the city’s brewing. With Wiper and True’s well-known ‘No Ordinary Beer’, it’s understandable why this partnership symbolises the unique edge the festival brings to the city.

Bristol Craft Beer Festival returns to Lloyd’s Amphitheatre from 11-13th September as the first post-lockdown event to take place in the city, hence the celebratory-named brew. The organisers have announced more than 30 breweries who will be at the festival serving you some refreshingly cold pints. Plus, what makes it better is that the weather is predicted to be sunny, but you know how things can change very quickly…

To go with all the brilliantly crafted beer, are some great musical entertainment, plus delicious, independent and local food stalls. Try burgers from Popti & Beast vs Asado, or a colourful kebab from Murray May’s. Or why not have a bite of cheesy carbs then wash it down with a brew of your choice? Two Belly will be serving cheese toasties and Alpmac has a selection of luxuriously-topped macaroni cheese dishes. Other drink options are also available at the festival including cider (of course!), as well as wine, gin, no/low alcohol drinks and sodas, which are all included in the festival ticket.

So you can still celebrate Bristol’s good beer and independent food scene, the event will have a number of safety measures in place. The measures at the 2020 Bristol Craft Beer Festival will include increased PPE at service areas, updating queuing and directional signage for visitors, app-based registration, rigorous cleaning and sanitising throughout and in between sessions, increased entry, exit points and toilets. This festival is also only allowing advance ticket entry and card payments.
