We are celebrating our 16th year of the Medway Beer Festival.

We will have 50 cask conditioned ales from around the UK differing in colours, styles, taste and strength. We will also have the full range of ciders from the Kent Cider Company and at sometime during the weekend a visit from the team who produce these wonderful ciders. Our Belgian bottled beer bar will be open again with a selection of wine and soft drinks for drivers!. Live music will feature each evening but if you like the peace and quiet of this wonderful festival, then the day time is for you. Hot food will be served during most of the opening hours. As usual we will be giving away two free pints at the top of every hour. This is a festival which will not be disrupted by the weather. Just make you way along to the Stanley Ballroom and you will be assured of a warm welcome.

Thursday 8th November – 1600 until 2300 – £3.00 Entry
