It was that time of year again. The Sutton Beer Festival takes over St Andrews church and sets up a selection of craft beers, ales, and ciders for the village to enjoy.
I always get excited when the Sutton beer festival comes as Sutton doesn’t really have a decent pub, with The Cheques being visually stunning from the outside but otherwise a very bleak and dated pub with a poor selection of beer, and a couple of social clubs.
A couple of IPA’s I enjoyed at the Sutton beer festival.
• Moonshine Brewery did a lovely NEIPA at 4.9%.
• Nene Valley did the real star of the show however, with an IPA called the Big Bang Theory at 5.3%.
• Sampled a couple of ciders from Simon’s Cider (Russet On The Leaf and Discovery). You can tell these are a huge step up from other cider I’ve had. A real depth of flavour.
The festival is free entry and all beers are £4 a pint. Happy to see this not skyrocketing like everything else at the moment. 👍 This is a real festival for real people.
Pint glasses are a £2 deposit each which can be returned when you leave There is also an option to donate that money to a charity supporting the victims of the invasion of Ukraine 🇺🇦
They also use a cashless ticket system where you purchase tickets at the door and spend it inside. This speeds up the bar meaning you aren’t waiting too long for a drink.
They do a selection of food including some of the best pork scratchings I’ve had in a while. The staff were fantastic and some of the most generous half pints I’ve ever seen!
The church is visually stunning and such a unique place to enjoy a beer. This is also good for families with a bouncy castle available. £4 all day.
Sutton beer festival appears several times a year, so make sure to keep your ear to the ground for the next one in July.
