Charities to benefit from beer fest

PUBLISHED: 21:00 15 May 2011


AN Axbridge care home, Weare pre-school and national charity will all benefit from the proceeds of a beer festival.

The third Cheddar Ales Brewery Beer Festival will be held over the weekend of June 17-19.

Brewers Jem Ham and John Magill are hand-picking a range of 45 award-winning real ales from across Britain for the charity event.

There will be family-friendly fun during the day, with activities to keep children entertained, and live music from local acts, as well as night time fun.

People can camp throughout the festival which takes place in and around the Cheddar Ales site off Draycott Road.

The microbrewery team is hoping to raise enough cash to refurbish communal areas at St Michaels Cheshire Home in Axbridge, provide new equipment for Weare Community Pre-school and make a donation to the British Heart Foundation.

Entry is £3 for adults, which includes a souvenir pint glass and a festival programme, and is free for children.
