Bury Beer Festival Returns for 2011

The Bury Beer Festival returns to The Met and real ale bar Malt on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 November, featuring over 100 different cask ales, an exciting mix of live entertainment and a fine helping of scrumptious cuisine.

Bury Beer Festival takes a traditional approach, putting the focus on locally brewed beers from Bury and the surrounding areas. Confirmed so far for this year’s festival are Outstanding Brewery, Greenmill Brewery, Irwell Brewery, Brightside Brewery and Layden Brewery. The festival will also feature a Malt Bar, Automatic Bar and a Ramsbottom Festival Bar, which will feature Elbow’s beer, Build a Rocket Boys! Made by Robinsons Brewery.

The Met welcomed over 2,000 visitors to last year’s Beer Festival who chose 2010’s Beer of the Festival as Copper Plate by Irwell Brewery, who also made their festival debut at The Met that weekend.

Bury Beer Festival runs from 12noon – midnight on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 November. Entrance is £2 on Friday afternoon (before 5pm) and £4 on Friday evening (after 5pm) and Saturday. CAMRA members with a valid membership card are permitted half-price entry.

The Met offers a VIP Beer Festival experience which features skip the queue entry, £10 worth of beer vouchers, a limited edition festival glass, a Festival Programme, food vouchers and much more. We also offer a company package, which offers food, booze and promotion for only £100!
