Summer is over. Deal with it yeah? But as one door closes another one opens; cue chunky knitwear, log fires and the Portsmouth Beer Festival Christmas Sessions.
Returning for it’s second year at Portsmouth Guildhall on Friday 18th & Saturday 19th December 2015, festival Organiser Ben Miles says, “We’re proud that The Portsmouth Beer Festival is back after another sell-out weekend back in May 2015 and we are looking forward to presenting our “Christmas Sessions” again after a great success last December. A celebration of craft beers and cask ales, alongside a selection of ciders, mulled wine, mulled cider and festive street food all set to the backdrop of more fantastic live entertainment – line-up to be released soon, so watch this space!”
Beers will be featured from local breweries as well as from around the UK. A large variety of darker beers will feature to suit the season, but fear not there will still be a fine selection of pale ales and hoppy craft beers on offer. Expect to see beers from the likes of Ilkley, Dark Star and Tiny Rebel as well as local brewers The Brewhouse, Staggeringly Good, Oakleaf, Havant and Irving & Co amongst many, many more.
Again the event will be raising money for two fantastic charities in the extremely popular Pub Games Room hosted by Austen ‘Danger” McLean, for the Thunder Foundation African Schools Charity and the SamuelsFund.
Ben adds “We’re looking forward to getting many people’s Christmas festivities off to an enjoyable start at the Christmas Sessions 2015. It will be a great for social gatherings, work parties and generally catching up over a Christmassy pint!”
Tickets are priced at £10 per person per session and include a complimentary souvenir glass, programme and beer token.
