Beer Festivals

Find us at local food and drink festivals, or join us for our very own beer festival on the Wirral.

Having made successful appearances at food and drink festivals across the region we wanted to put our festival experience to the test and launch our own beer festival. So in 2014 the Ship & Mitre Wirral Beer Festival was born. Now a bi-annual event, you can catch us at Hulme Hall, Port Sunlight during November and over Easter.

We host a range of in-house festival too. Throughout the year we’ll bring you an even bigger range of Real Ales, Craft, Belgian, American and German beers. We’ll plan these to coincide with international events such as Thanksgiving and Oktoberfest.

Beer Festivals

Unfortunately with just a few weeks to go we haven't sold the number of tickets we'd expected to, and therefore we've taken the difficult decision to cancel the event. As our first craft event we did take a gamble on whether it would prove popular, and with other factors such as the timing with people's holiday plans and a move away from our more traditional real ale festivals, we understand it wouldn't be for everyone. This won't impact on our regular autumn Hulme Hall weekend; Thursday October 18th to Sunday October 21st We have plans to make the craft beer offering better than ever so don’t worry you won’t be missing out. We are sorry to be cancelling the event and hope it won't deter you from future festivals. If you need any more information don't hesitate to drop me an email. Ben

18th - 21st October 2018 Wirral Beer Festival

Well here we go again, a little bit earlier than normal but still all the same goodies that you have enjoyed over the last few years. As well as a fantastic range of cask ales from near and wide we will be offering a huge selection of craft and continental beers from UK and further afield. Our aim is to have something for everyone so this BEER festival will have a great range of wines, spirits and ciders to back up the impressive 250 beers on offer. Old favourites Peninsular Pies, Liverpool Cake Co, Bongo's Rock n Roll Chilli Pickles will be there to keep you refuelled as well as a new street food menu and sweet and savoury crepes. We will keep you entertained with live music each session (except Friday afternoon and Sunday) As ever we welcome any suggestions so please feel free to email me.
