Three nights of entertainment, award-winning ales and fundraising for good causes.
It all adds up to the 18th King’s Lynn Beer Festival being organised by Vancouver Round Table and the Stuart House Hotel which will take place from Thursday to Saturday, July 23-25 in the grounds of the hotel in Goodwins Road, King’s Lynn.
The selection of ales available comes from all over the country as well as local brews. Last year, from the many different ales at the King’s Lynn Beer Festival, there were many winners from the Great British Beer Festival in London, which had almost 1000 beers.
This confirms the quality and standard of those available at the King’s Lynn festival – which also offers probably the largest selection of real ales in West Norfolk, good food and superb entertainment each evening.
The bar of the Stuart House Hotel is well known in CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) circles and the hotel has been formally recognised in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for the last 17 years. It is also the Vancouver Round Table’s meeting place and hence the natural alliance in promoting the event at one of King’s Lynn busiest times of year.
A proportion of the profits from the event, unlike many other beer festivals staged throughout the country, is used by the Round Table to help support local charities.
Opening times and the programme are as follows (entertainment 8.30-11pm nightly):
Thursday 23rd (open from 5pm) with Meadow Lane providing folk with a twist of rock;
Friday 24th (open from 12 noon) with Keno Kings playing serious blues;
Saturday 25 (open from 12 noon) with cover band Wild Wood providing the music.
