Beer Festivals

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

We are always excited to take the Ship & Mitre on the road, and you will regularly see us at Liverpool Food and Drink festivals and Wirral’s Farm Feast. 2014 saw us launch our own beer festival in Hulme Hall, Port Sunlight which is now an annual event each November.

We host a range of in–house beer festivals too, including German, Belgian & Real Ale. We plan these festivals to coincide with a major International event, for example our American Festival coincides with American Independence Day, and our German with Oktoberfest. Each festival showcases a range of beers from that particular country that you may not have tried before (for those of you looking for something new).

Now a regular event on the beer festival calendar, our next Wirral Beer Festival is planned to coincide with the Easter holidays, so for those lucky ones with no work on the Friday and Monday it’s a great opportunity to join us over the weekend.

Each event has gone from strength to strength and by popular demand we will run two festivals in 2016. Like our previous festivals we will have 100 real ales from across the UK, 40 ciders and 40 plus Craft and Continental beers.

Entertainment is an important part of the festival for us and we are sure to pick some great acts for the weekend – as well as top quality food from Hulme Hall and a great variety of local stallholders.

Planning has already started and we’d love your input so please email me with your suggestions.
