The theme for this year’s event is Marathon with a pin being placed on the map in the Barlow Institute and a radius of 26.2 miles was drawn around it, the challenge was then to source a wide and diverse range of beers within the boundary of the festival.
The festival this year will raise money for great Ormond Street Hospital and Help for Heros and last year the festival raised over £12,000 which was given to Bolton Mountain Rescue and the North West Air Ambulance.
The main sponsor this year is Holdens Ice Cream Shop who will be selling their ice cream throughout the weekend including a real ale flavoured offering.
