Bristol Craft Beer Festival Adds Additional Date Due to Popular Demand
Organisers of the Bristol Craft Beer Festival have announced an additional date for the festival: Sunday 13th September 2020, 12-5pm.
Due to popular demand the day session on Saturday 12th September has already sold out, and in the interest of safety and social distancing, organisers have chosen to add a further date so attendees have the chance to enjoy the festival safely and with lots of space the following day.
The Bristol Craft Beer Festival marks the first event in the city post lockdown, and possibly the first festival to take place across the entire UK. The festival will now take place from Friday 11 – Sunday 13 September 2020 at the Lloyds Amphitheatre. While safety is obviously priority number one, the event aims to be a really special celebration of local beer, and the amazing independent food scene in the city.
With a number of measures in place to ensure the safety of all those in attendance, the festival brings together a curation of the very best craft breweries, local food traders as well as other artisan producers for three days of delicious fun.
A celebration of brewing culture in Bristol and beyond, the Bristol Craft Beer Festival 2020 will feature a huge variety of the world’s finest beers from local breweries like Wiper & True and Arbor Ales, alongside national and international big hitters like Northern Monk from Leeds and To Øl from Denmark; local food outlets like Two Belly, Asado and Eatchu and live music from the finest local DJs (TBA).
The event is unique in the sense that one ticket price gets visitors access to all of these beers allowing people explore, discover and deepen their knowledge of quality beer, whereas other events of this nature operate additional cost token systems to sample what is on offer.
Greg Wells, founder of Bristol Craft Beer Festival, explains:
“We have been blown away by the support and interest so far in the festival, and are really excited to announce an extra date, which will allow more people to safely come and enjoy the fantastic beer, food, music and other beverages that will be on offer. We have been working alongside Bristol City Council and the licensing bodies to ensure we will operate within all government guidelines.
“Bristol is a tremendous beer and food city and we have amazing producers right on our doorstep - the 2020 Bristol Craft Beer Festival will be in honour of them. While the festival obviously won’t be exactly the same as previous years, we want to safely raise a glass in support of this awesome city.
“The 2020 Bristol Craft Beer Festival will feature a number of enhanced safety procedures, which include increased PPE at service areas, updating queuing and directional signage for visitors, app-based registration to comply with track and trace, rigorous cleaning and sanitising throughout and in between sessions, increased entry and exit points, toilets as well as admittance by advance tickets only and no cash payments.
“Bristol Craft Beer Festival has always been more than just a beer festival - and this year that is especially true. While travel and logistics might sadly restrict a few breweries attending in person, there will still be hundreds of amazing beers from the best breweries both local and international.”
If for any reason a second lockdown is implemented and the festival is cancelled until 2021, tickets will automatically roll onto the 2021 or 2022 edition.
