The York House Community Centre will play host to craft beer and real ale, talks about brewing and beer, street food and music.

This year’s spring festival, previously organised by MK Biergarten, hopes to present the best of the local and national brewing innovation in differently themed rooms all around York House.

Modelled on other big craft beer festivals, breweries will have their own stalls at which they’ll be serving special releases and old favourites.

Real ale and craft beer will be featured side by side. Since opening in spring 2017 on the Stony Stratford High Street, Beer Bear has been an advocate of independent craft beer as well as established local breweries and hopes to reach out to even more customers through this extensive one day event.

Street food will be provided by Good Times Cafe and Bandit Street Food and in the evening, MK’s best brass band, The Huffandpuffers, will once more entertain crowds at York House.

”We want to do our best to bring the best beer to Milton Keynes and hope to do our bit by running this cracking festival,” said Franzi Florack, Beer Bear manager.

Entry is £10 and includes a commemorative glass and two half pints. Children are welcome until 8pm.

Reduced tickets can be purchased for £8 directly from Beer Bear. A limited range of cider and wine as well as non-alcoholic drinks will be on sale for non-beer drinkers.
