We’re so proud to be part of this year’s Knutsford Beer Festival, who have announced that they raised £10,000 – their biggest total yet! Around 1,000 people attended the event at The Courthouse right in the centre of the town, which was commented as being “The poshest beer festival in the UK!”.
The two charities – Knutsford Royal May Day & Children’s Adventure Farm Trust – will each receive £4,500 and the remaining £1,000 will create a community fund that is open for local charities to apply for smaller grants throughout the year.
Tatton Brewery was at the heart of the festival with both Claire, Gregg and Nicky involved in getting the festival up and running – over the weekend guests were invited to try a range of Tatton regular and seasonal ales. We also ran a masterclass for them on the Saturday afternoon, where the highlight was a beer ice-cream float, which went down a storm.
When finding out just how successful the event had been, Gregg commented, “A delight to work with the KBF krew again, and see how hard they work to earn that marvellous moolah for charity. I hand-crafted a quick back-of-a-beer-mat cost/benefit analysis myself and it resolved down to this artisanal equation : Beer = Happiness. I think we can all agree on that.”
We’re already looking forward to the next one!
