Butcombe raises more than a glass to Bristol Beer Festival
Butcombe Brewery will sponsor this year’s CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival and will present three ales as part of the deal.
The Bristol-based brewery will supply all the glasses at the Festival, which is held from 10th to 12th March at Brunel’s Old Station at Temple Meads Station in the city. More than 140 different ales will be on offer throughout the event, as well as a selection of cider and Perry. The Bristol Beer Festival is a major attraction on the city’s events calendar and continues to attract people from all over the south west and further afield.
Butcombe Managing Director Geraint Williams said, “As one of the leading breweries in the southwest it is very important that we support events such as the Bristol Beer Festival and CAMRA because they do so much good work for our industry. Butcombe is proud to be associated with this event, and we are delighted to have been invited to offer a selection of our quality ales for visitors to the Festival to enjoy.”
As well as supplying glasses for the Festival, Butcombe will showcase two of its own beers and one from parent company Liberation Group.
