Liverpool Organic Brewery is the organisers of this hotly anticipated event in Liverpool and their own selection of real ales is extensively ranging from the Best Bitters to the Palest of Ales.

All Liverpool Organic Breweries own produce is created from the finest available ingredients in the country including grains from the oldest working malting in the country Warminster Maltings and hops from Charles Faram in business since 1865.

Along with their own brilliant brews St Georges Hall will be packed to the rafters with keg upon keg, cask upon cask and barrel upon barrel of tasty real ales for all you beer lovers to wrap your lips around this weekend.

Bringing the Gin in too

Not everybody can appreciate the hoppy delights of a specially crafted ale.

That’s why the thoughtful folk at Liverpool Organic Brewery have brought in the big Gins to a specially built Gin Garden for those who prefer beverage made from berries instead of grains.

Gin has become a favourite among spirit drinkers lately and Liverpool Gin is among the top choice of connoisseurs across the UK. Come quaff the most refreshing Gin and tonics or Gin cocktails instead of a pint, no one will judge . . . honest.

Served alongside the selection of Gin and endless beers will be chilled bottles of the finest Italian fizzy and wines of all varieties.
