It may look a bit untidy right now, but the beating heart of the festival is in place and getting ready to serve lots of lovely beer!

Monday, a small but dedicated group of volunteers put together the stillage (the rack the casks rest on) and the bar, and loaded up seven of the nine beers we will have on sale from Thursday. There’s a lot more to do before we open the doors at noon on Thursday, but we wanted you to know #TheBeerIsHere!

PS Look carefully and you can see Pete beavering away behind the rack to connect up the cooling system so our lovely beer stays in good condition.
