Ashcott Beer Festival

The Ashcott Beer Fest is an annual event held in the village of Ashcott in Somerset.  The weekend of fine ales and entertainment is intended for both the beer expert and the family to enjoy.

Welcome to the Ashcott Beer Fest!

Sun, fun, good ale and even a Red arrows flypast - this years Ashcott Beer Fest had it all! The 18th beer festival was a great success.  Early showers gave way to sunny spells that warmed the new-look site, which was able to make use of the almost-completed new pavilion.

With toe-tapping line-up of music large crowds were kept entertained.  On Saturday Alice in Wonderland-themed children’s activities brought in more families then ever with the fun spilling out across the festival.  A large number of volunteers kept the beer and ciders flowing and the delicious hot food being served from breakfast to midnight.

Chairman Duncan Cameron said the whole weekend was a traffic success. “There are many people we would like to thank, in particular everyone who contributed to making it a fantastic weekend,” he said. “All our sponsors, hard-working team of volunteers, the Ashcott Playing Fields Committee, our neighbours, those who performed and everyone who came along to enjoy the weekend and raise money for our three great beneficiaries.”

Help us by sponsoring a barrel of beer! Many of the local firms support us and without this we would be unlikely to make any money for our charities.

Sponsors - our heroes!

We need lots of volunteers to run this event.  If you can give up a little of your time please email or fill in the enquiry form on the Contact Us page.
