Bury Beer Festival puts the focus on Local Brews

The annual Bury Beer Festival returns on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 November, with even more real ale; scrumptious food and live music held at The Met and real ale bar Malt.


Brewers from Bury’s own Outstanding Beers, Ramsbottom’s Irwell Works, Yorkshire’s Pennine Brewery, Bolton’s Red Bank Cider and new Bury brewery Deeply Vale will each take a bar alongside a specially selected range of beers from across the North West and beyond hosted by Automatic and the team from Ramsbottom Festival.


Automatic will also be serving up delicious food for beer throughout the weekend and Bury Black Puddings will be available over the bar. Musical entertainments to delight your ears include local heroes Uke-Punk and Ramsbottom Festival graduates Horses on the Move and Taylor and the Mason.


Run by The Met and Automatic, Bury Beer Festival is now in it’s fifth year after taking over from the CAMRA festival in Bury in 2009. Each November the Beer Festival welcomes over 1,000 visitors drinking from a selection of over 100 different ales, ciders and perries on offer.


Bury Beer Festival runs from 12noon – midnight on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 November. Entrance to the festival is £2 on Friday afternoon (before 5pm) and £4 on Friday evening (after 5pm) and all day Saturday. CAMRA members and members of The Met are entitled to half-priced entry with a valid membership card.


The Met also offers a VIP Beer Festival experience featuring queue-jump entry, £10 worth of beer vouchers, a limited edition festival glass, a festival programme and a food voucher. VIP packages are £20 and must be bought in advance from The Met or the Beer Festival website.
