Wincle Beer Festival 2016
This year we’re working with the lovely folks at the Wincle Beer Company (where we cuckoo brew out of) to bring you Wincle Beer Festival 2016. There will be over 20 real ales, craft keg beers and real ciders on offer, all properly served on hand pull or keg tap to ensure the best quality beer drinking experience. As well as beer, there is food, live music, camping and…the ever popular tug of war!
The event takes place over the 24th and 25th June at the picturesque setting of Wincle Brewery, Tolls Farm Barn, Dane Bridge, Wincle, SK11 0QE. It starts at 6pm on Friday 24th June and again at 1pm on Saturday 25th June.
There will be of course all our beers on offer plus we’ve sourced some great brews from our friends at some fantastic breweries from the Sheffield area such as a Neepsend Brew Co/Hop Jacker collaboration, Blue Bee Brewery and Little Critters Brewery. Wincle Beer Co have sourced some fantastic beers from their friends at the awesome Ran Ales, Rudgate Brewery and Bollington Brewing Co.
To soak up all that beer, mouth watering food is on offer from Gloucester Old Spot BBQ all day on Saturday.
There will be live music throughout the daytime from some great acoustic and folk artists and on Saturday evening it gets turned up a notch as Sheffield blues rockers The Ruby Blues play from 7pm and Leek’s pop rockers The Tetleys play from 9pm.
The tug of war competition takes place at 2pm on the Saturday. You are of course welcome to just rock up to pitch your tent and join in the fun but if you would like to find out more or pre-book a team into the tug of war then please just get in touch: 01260 227 777 (Wincle Beer Co) or 0114 282 3098 (The Brew Foundation)

If you’d like to make a weekend out of it (and why wouldn’t you!) then camping is available on both nights for just £5 for tents and £10 for camper vans/caravans. Camp site opens at 5pm on the Friday evening.
