Beer Fest

15th August 2016


Indian brewed Goa Premium Beer’s gluten free pilsner is to feature at a four-day beer festival over the August Bank Holiday, from Friday 26th to Monday 29th August at the Abergavenny Arms near Tunbridge Wells


The high light of the event will be live music in the pub garden with a all day barbecue on the Sunday in the beer garden which seats 50 diners.


During the festival the imposing 16th century pub, which is open all day for food, will serve 18 different beers. These will include many local craft beers and guest ales from around the UK and beyond.


“For me, the final bank holiday Sunday of the summer is the best day of the year,” said pub landlord Richard Burrell.  “Party all day with no work to worry about the next morning – except for us poor pub workers.”


A popular destination for beer enthusiasts, the bar normally offers no fewer than six hand pulled ales from Kent and Sussex brewers, such as Harvey’s Best, Tonbridge Coppernob, Long Man’s American Pale Ale and Best Bitter, Larkin’s Traditional and Dark Star’s Hophead.  Also stocked is Curious Brew from Chapel Down Brewery.


The Abergavenny Arms becomes the first hostelry in south east England to serve newly imported gluten Goa Premium Beer from India.  Until now the unique 4.8% pilsner had only been available at a few select restaurants.


The pub, situated by the A267, is a popular stopping off point for Londoners visiting the Sussex coast.
