Beer festival at Widnes vintage rally
A BEER festival is set to provide a novel attraction in Widnes at the weekend.
A real ale named after a local boat will be on sale during Cask Ale Week at the north west vintage rally in Victoria Park.
Organisers are proud to announce they will be offering the local beer simply called ‘Danny in beer tent’.
One cask contains 72 pints of cask conditioned ale, which, since it is a fresh, natural product containing live yeast, has only three days shelf life.
Halton Clr Eddie Jones, board member for events, said "It is rare to find a beer named after a boat. It is being brewed as part of the Daniel Adamson project by the award-winning Frodsham Brewery based in the Weaver Valley.
"It has been well received by real-ale lovers at a local Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branch.
“It is a great way for them to raise the profile of their project working to restore the former Manchester Ship Canal and Mersey Steam Tug-Tender Daniel Adamson.”
Around 50,000 visitors are expected to attend the free two-day family event which will also feature classic cars and bikes, fair organs, vintage machinery, family entertainment and much more from 10am to 5pm each day.
A sample of the beers on sale will include Navigation Traditional Navigation Brewery Nottingham, Dizzy Dark Side Robinsons Cheshire, Celtic Red Wharf Bank Yorkshire, Two Hoots Joseph Holt Manchester, Celtic Pride Felinfoel South Wales, Dizzy Blonds Robinsons Cheshire, Trooper Robinsons Cheshire, and Danny Frodsham Brewery Cheshire.
