A last minute addition to the beer line up – Red Feather ale

red-f

We are pleased to announce that Welbeck Abbey Brewery‘s Red Feather (3.9% Amber Ale) is the latest addition to the festival’s beer and ale line up.

Red Feather takes inspiration from the emblem of Welbeck and its crossed red feathers, which represent pride in the estate’s heritage and entrepreneurial spirit. Red Feather is a distinctly English ale and blends a robust bitterness with caramel notes from its Crystal malts to create a moreish, malty amber beer.

Make sure you get here early to sample a pint of this delicious, flavoursome seasonal beer.

2013 Beer and Cider selection announced!

Our Real Ales:

  • Deception 4.1% (Abbeydale Brewery)
    A pale beer, made with fabulous Nelson Sauvin hops. Aromas of elderflower and grapes. Strong citrus flavours, especially grapefruit. Long lasting bitter finish. Very refreshing and packed full of flavour.
  • Blanco Blonde 4.2% (Sheffield Brewery Co.)
    Continental lager style beer brewed entirely from lager malt and delicately flavoured with aromatic Saaz hops from the Czech Republic.
  • Sheffield Porter 4.4% (Sheffield Brewery Co.)
    This is a recent favourite very popular amongst “Porter” enthusiasts. With its rich chocolaty, malty and caramel flavours it was described by acclaimed beer writer Roger Protz as “Darkly delicious”.
  • Farmers Brown Cow 4.2% (Bradfield Brewery)
    A rich deep chestnut coloured ale, with a beautifully smooth creamy head. A citrus after taste gives way to a long dry finish.
  • Farmers Wim-Bull-Don 4.5% (Bradfield Brewery)
    A pale coloured fruity ale with a burst of summer fruit flavours.
  • Bohemian Rhapsody 4.7% (Kelham Island Brewery)
    A golden continental style beer brewed with the finest aromatic Munich and Vienna malts and a trio of Styrian Goldings. This beer is fermented with a German lager yeast to give a refreshing beer with fruity estery notes which combine with the crisp floral hop character for a flavoursome pint.
  • Worrall Festival Ale 4% (Kelham Island Brewery)
    Secret recipe festival ale. This year brewed by Kelham Island Brewery.

Our Ciders:

  • Devon Red Cider 4.5% (Sandford Orchards)
    Bags of fruit and a truly satisfying cider bite delivered in a genuinely quaffable and light balanced cider.
  • Blackberry Blush Cider 6.5% (Millwhites Cider)
    A late summer blend of our scrumpy cider and the juice of hand picked blackberries.
  • Rum Cask Cider 7.5% (Millwhites Cider)
    A premium cider aged in barrels from the Jamaican Rum Company. This cider was Champion Cider of East Anglia in 2009.

Indie-folk band Brave New Storm the latest additions to the festival line up

We are excited to announce that Sheffield based indie-folk band Brave New Storm are the latest additions to the festival line up! They will be performing on Saturday evening alongside The Backyard Buskers and Richard Brown.

In their own words, Brave New Storm  ‘focus on classic folk themes with a contemporary twist, from nostalgic songs about well spent summers, to protest songs about the student protests of 2010.’ The band have been getting rave reviews recently so make sure you come down and see for yourselves what all the fuss is about!

‘The atmosphere they made was brilliant… Brave New Storm are excellent… emotive’ – Forge Press live review

Tickets are only £7 for adults and £4 for 16s and under. Children under 5 get in Free!
