The 10th Forever Bury Beer Festival Thursday May 14th – Saturday May 16th 11.00am – 11.00pm Daily
There were euphoric scenes at Prenton Park last Saturday when Bury FC brought their successful season to a close by beating Tranmere Rovers 1 – 0 and, with Southend United failing to win, the Shakers were promoted back to League One and fans celebrated long into the night.
Volunteers from Forever Bury, the Bury FC Supporters Trust, are hoping that the celebrations will carry on next week as they throw open the doors of the Bury FC Social Club to host the 1oth Forever Bury Beer Festival.
This ever popular event has raised over £103,000.00 to date and brings people in from all over the country and even from further afield to sample the large range of real ales on offer and all at the amazing price of just £2.00 per pint.
There is also an extensive bottle bar with a large range of German beers at its core. This is also complimented by a fantastic array of ciders from around the British Isles.
As always the Festival has linked up with a local charity for this year’s event and everyone at Forever Bury is delighted to be helping the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity this year as “Super Josh” was a Forever Bury junior member. Let’s hope that everyone attending this year takes a little time out to chat with one of the helpers of the Charity to learn more about Josh’s short life and support them.
The Saturday afternoon session is always fun as people are asked to come along in football shirts which ever club or country you support, everyone is welcome. It would be brilliant to see some of the Shakers shirts from years gone by so if you are coming along on Saturday 16th please get your football shirt on.
Finally, this is likely to be the last Festival held in the Bury FC Social Club as development plans at the ground see it closing soon. Forever Bury are already planning the next one which is hoped to move inside the ground which means we can carry on growing it for many years to come and even one day be rivalling the Stockport Beer Festival which started way back in 1987 and has been held at Stockport County’s ground since 2004
