Medway Beer Festival
The 2015 Medway Beer Festival


News of the 12th and 13th Medway Beer Festivals


This is the 13th Medway Beer Festival at the Stanley Ballroom in Chatham but don’t worry because we’re not superstitious, even if we do open our doors for the first time this year on the 13th.  We have 50 cask conditioned ales from around the UK. There is also a range of Kent bottled beers for you to buy and take home. We have two draught Belgian beers once again and around 60 bottled Belgian beers with even more Christmas specials. Our 50 real ales range in strength from 3.5% to 7.4% abv and vary in tastes and styles. You can take away two pints of your favourite ale or cider in one of our special containers. Ask for details at any of the bars. Your festival glass is yours to take home, so please ask for a bag on the way out so that you can carry it safely. Please fill out the form in your glass so that you can enter the hourly draw for two pints of ale. This year we are celebrating the life of one of the festival characters who sadly won’t be with us this year. Jackie Hearn – who has been a favourite on the reception desk for the last 10 years – lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. In her memory we will be collecting money for Cancer Research. There is a collection box in the reception area and any unused beer vouchers will be donated to the fund. Please help us to make it a big total. Finally our live music line-up for the three days is as follows:


Thursday evening: Scarlet Rae         

Friday evening: The Kindreds         

Saturday evening: Scratch It & Itch It
