Arkells Brwery Beer Festival & Brewery Tours (Swindon)


War Hero

More than 30 Breweries from across the UK have promised some of their best brews to Arkell's on 8th September as the brewery gears up for its 2007 Beer Festival.

And beers aren't the only things on show this year. A vintage Rolls Royce, Bentley, motorcycles and live music are some of the other attractions promised, as well as a beautiful 1943 Austin K4 60-foot Fire Appliance.

The festival, on Saturday 8th September, will feature all Arkell's regular beers as well as guest beers from many members of the Independent Family Brewers of Britain (IFBB), and a number of other breweries.

Visitors to the beer festival will also have the unique opportunity to tour around the Kingsdown brewery itself, one of the finest examples of a Victorian steam brewery anywhere in the world; discover how the brewery works and how real ale is made.

Bookings for Brewery tours are now being taken, but must be pre-booked to reserve your space. Contact Arkell's Brewery directly on 01793 823026. The brewery grounds will also be open so visitors can tour around at their leisure and follow a specially laid out brewery walk.

James Arkell, managing director of Arkell's Brewery, said: "The Arkell's Beer Festival is a celebration of one of the oldest industries in Britain and certainly the oldest in Swindon. This is part of our country's heritage, of which we and our fellow brewers are very proud."

Festival details:

The Arkells' Beer Festival runs from 11:00am - 6.30pm on Saturday, 08 September 2007.

Entry costs £5, which includes a special commemorative glass.

Brewery tours must be pre-booked and cost £3 per person. To book, please call: 01793 823026.
Pre-payment is required.
