A big thank you to everybody who came to our best ever festival in 2015. We are still finalising a few figures but we had over 6,700 people attending the festival over the three days.
We would also like to thank all of our sponsors for supporting the festival, and especially all of the volunteers who gave their time to help make it a very successful festival.
The dates for our 2016 festival will be Thursday 16 – Saturday 18 June. We will shortly update this web site but please note that its contents currently refer to the 2015 festival.
We will start planning next year’s festival in September, and as always will be looking to improve and develop the festival.
Many thanks to Allendale Brewery for sponsoring our volunteers T shirts.
Beer from the Hills: Since 2006
From our home in a former Smelt mill in the North Pennines, we brew an array of international, national and local award winning ales and lagers.
As a passionate and modern business we craft exceptional, full flavoured beers for cask, keg and bottle.
Whether from our main range of diverse styles or our growing series of showcase beers in the ‘END’ range, we make a beer for any taste. Which is your favourite?
On Saturday afternoon you can enjoy some great beers and also watch some fast and exciting 7’s rugby. The competition is in aid of the Stay Strong Stu charities.
Allendale Brewery is also producing a special beer for the festival – Stu’s Brew! Thanks to Rachel Forster and the sponsors who have supported this great cause. The festival will also be making a donation to the charity based on how many casks are consumed!
