Formby Beer Festival and Gin Bar returns for the second year this weekend

Formby Beer Festival and Gin Bar returns for the second year running this weekend. It is hosted by Red Star Brewery and Formby Cricket Club.

Red Star Brewery is Formby's only brewery and have been brewing since 2014. They have so far won 2 SIBA gold awards from the Society of Indepandant Brewers.

Formby Cricket & Hockey Club has been at the heart of the community for 150 years and provides great facilities for private functions.

The beer festival takes place on Friday 6th April from 6:30pm to Sunday 8th April at 5pm.

Hosts of the beer festival are Red Star, Formby’s first commercial brewery for 70 years and are now into their third year of brewing finest quality cask ales.

Four of Red Star’s ten beers will be available as well as 24 different cask ales; some of which showcase other Merseyside breweries and we’re sure that everybody will find at least a few beers to their liking. For anybody not sold on cask ales, the Cricket Club bar will also be open for wines and 10 different gins.

Red Star Brewery are based in Stephenson Way, Formby and are now in their 3rd year of brewing traditional cask ales. They have already won 2 SIBA gold awards and CAMRA "Beer of the Festival' at Liverpool cathedral. Formby IPA has also been on sale in the Houses of Parliament for both Lords and MP's.
