Classic beers and ales on display at Ramsbury’s beer festival
For all of you beer lovers out there (and we’re sure there are more than a few of you), you’ll be able to test and sample a range of the different types of beers and ales we have brewed locally here: our newest brew, The Platinum Pale included, which was inspired by the upcoming Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, set to take place between the 2nd of 5th of June.
If you’re on the hunt for a more classic ale experience, don’t worry, our classic Ramsbury Pale Ale has not been forgotten. Pair with a dish from one of the many local food stalls in attendance for the ultimate Ramsbury experience: whether that be with a beef burger made from Ramsbury’s local meat produce, or even a pizza… this drink is perfect to enjoy on a blissful summer’s day.
Not forgetting the beer where it all began, the number one selling ale, our Ramsbury Gold; brewed with our own malted barley, will of course be available to try, too. Rest assured, there is a range of other beers and ales you can explore by popping along on the day, which will give you a unique experience of what the Ramsbury Brewery and Distillery has to offer at this year’s craft beer festival.
For our craft spirit lovers, there is a cocktail bar too
What is not exciting about a cocktail bar? On the day here at Ramsbury’s Brewery and Distillery, we will be selling some of our finest spirits at our cocktail bar. Whilst you’re here, why not try our single estate gin, too? It is just one of the few single estate gins made here in the United Kingdom. This award-winning gin begins its journey on the estate as Horatio wheat and is then distilled through our 43 copper still; creating a sumptuous flavour that gives this drink a uniquely smooth texture.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a bit different, we definitely recommend that you try our wild apple or cherry vodka. Both combine local ingredients and natural flavours to champion the Wiltshire countryside, and will be sure to make your taste buds explode. But don’t just take your word for it, come and give it a try for yourself on the 21st of May!
The entertainment at Ramsbury’s craft beer festival
The Wiltshire festival will include entertainment from live local bands which will allow you to relax whilst sipping away on some of our finest handcrafted beverages.
There is also entertainment for the kids to enjoy and keep them occupied in what is set to be an exciting day for all the family.
You can also enjoy some of our local food vendors for you to tuck into if you get hungry throughout the day by indulging in some of our beautiful local produce, and the events room will give you a great experience. Here, you can view our unique distillery which is perfect if you are looking for somewhere to host a private function in the future.
