Welcome to the Boot Beer Festival

6-9th June Boot Beer 2024


Boot Beer Festival 2024 6th-9th June

Planning is well under way for this years Beeer Festival. Jam Shed are back at Brook House Inn on Thursday night to get things underway along with our traditional curry night. if you have not already booked accommodation there are a few spots still available, you may need to ring the Eskdale campsite to book, but Fisherground has space at the time of writing. Hollinhead campsite near Fisherground, Dalegarth campsite and The Barn campsite are worth checking to see what is available. Some social media posts will be sent out in the near future with some more information. This should be bigger and better than ever!  These can only be booked over the phone so give us a ring. Look forward to seeing you all in June, 

 so get your accommodation booked, tent waterproofed, stomach lined and tastebuds aclimatised! I can see an onslaught of hop led ales super dark stouts and a return of trad bitter. 

Don't stop me now we are going to have a good time!

If you are planning on coming for the weekend, remember you may well need to book tables for food, bring your beer goggles and scented candles

Great Event in the Valley of the Esk

Boot Beer Festival is a great event for all the family, ride up on the la'al Ratty railway, visit Brook House Inn and sample a beer or two then wonder up to the Woolpack or down to the King George IV.

A bus service will be running throughout the day on Saturday.

Why not get a load of mates together, hire a minibus and con someone into driving! Better still dig the tent out blag Thursday and Friday off work and come for 3 nights of superb beer in a wonderful part of the lakes, you could even do some walking (even if it is only between the pubs) Friday and Saturday nights are busy at all the venues so booking a table for dinner is always a good idea.

The Boot Inn, is not taking part this year, but will still be open so ideal for non drinkers and the kids can enjoy themselves at the Boot Inn play area. The working corn mill will be open in Boot village.

Not just Ales

Boot Beer Festival is now one of the biggest in Cumbria with over 100 beers from nearly as many breweries, each pub chooses its own beers then we weed out any duplicates. To keep down the food miles, Northern beers feature heavily, but some interesting brews from further afield always appear on the list. At least 10 ciders will be available and all the pubs have the usual range of soft drinks for drivers and children. The beers will be listed shortly before the festival start but the list is seldom definative as the ephemoral nature of some breweries concoctions makes it difficult to pinpoint exactly which brews will be available in June!
