The 10th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will be held on 3rd, 4th & 5th July 2014 at St Clement\'s Church on Edge Lane in Chorlton-cum-Hardy.

Run in conjunction with St Clements, the festival began in 2005 to raise funds for the repair of the church buildings, but has grown to become a firm fixture in the Chorlton social calendar and the branch\'s premier festival. Year on year the festival has grown with more beers, more ciders & more visitors - so much so that despite a 20% increase in the beer order for 2012, the festival visitors still drunk it dry on Saturday evening. In 2013 the bars did stay open until then end. For 2014 we will be having around 95 cask ales plus 50 ciders & perries and bottled foreign beers.

The festival takes place in the grounds of the Church, with two real ale bars, a cider, perry bar and a fourth bar serving bottled beers.

Following the success of the previous three year’s festivals, St Clements Church have enrolled Trafford and Hulme Branch of CAMRA to ensure the quality and range of the beers continue to develop. Although T&H have been instrumental in organising, managing and serving the beer for the previous festivals, this is the first time that the relationship has become official, meaning that the event has now hit the CAMRA diary.

The 6th Chorlton Beer Festival

chorlton beerThis year over 50 real ales will be available to sample along with a collection of at least 30 traditional ciders.

On Saturday afternoon (until 7.00pm) children are welcome and receive free entry.  A range of bands will be playing live music throughout the festival and even pouring rain has failed to dampen the spirits in previous years.

The Chorlton Beer Festival is run by St Clement's Church Chorlton in keeping with the church's desire to become an integral part of Chorlton life.  The beer festival is organised and run by members of the church with the aid of Trafford and Hulmel Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branch.

 The Festival has its own website
