BEER will be flowing once again at a much-loved celebration.

Knutsford Beer Festival returns for a three-day extravaganza in a new venue.

The charity event takes place from Thursday, April 28 to Saturday, April 30 at the iconic Marshall's House building in Egerton Place.

The currently unoccupied building is under new ownership with property management company MBOSS who have generously donated the venue for the festival.

Significant refurbishment and modernisation are being carried out to restore many of the original features of the building and turn it into a premium wedding, events and social space later this year.

Andrew Malloy, chairman of Knutsford Beer Festival, said: "In 2014, we held our first beer festival just next door in the Old Town Hall, now the Lost and Found.

"When we visited Egerton Place, we instantly knew this would be like coming home and we thank MBOSS for allowing us to use their newly acquired venue.

"The central location is ideal to help promote and support our wonderful town and after what will be three years since our last beer festival, I think we all need a bit of a party.

"We’ll be bringing the same but unique selection of craft beers and the return of our carefully selected street food vendors."

Since 2014, the festival has raised more than £27,000 for local charities.

Undeterred by a cancelled event in 2020, the team produced a bespoke craft beer advent calendar which raised £1,000.

This year's proceeds will be shared between the Toy Appeal and Schools Ball charities.

Andrew added: “It just feels right, with Egerton Place’s history as the original Egerton School, that we will be supporting two children focussed charities.

"Toy Appeal provides more than 9,000 Christmas sacks for children who otherwise may receive little or nothing for Christmas.

"Our four state primary schools via the Knutsford primary schools ball committee, who have been unable to hold their fundraising event for the last two years, but hopefully will also return in 2022.”

A dedicated beer bar will be supplemented with a gin bar plus a range of wines and other spirits.

The beer list is being curated by craft beer enthusiast David Morgan and founding member Paul Buttrick.

Together, they hope to bring a complementary range of beer styles to appeal to broad range of tastes.

David said:"I'm really looking forward to joining the beer festival team for 2022 in this brilliant new venue.

"I've previously been involved with Knutsford Beer Festival behind the scenes so I'm really excited about being more actively involved this time around.

"I'll be leading on the craft beer side of the event, something we've been keen to grow over the past few years.

"We're focusing on the wealth of celebrated craft breweries on our doorstep. Expect to see some of the top breweries from Manchester and Liverpool, our local beer heroes like Mobberley Brewhouse and Tatton Brewery and some smaller microbreweries we want to shine the spotlight on.

"Alongside this will be our usual showcase of fine ales on cask so there really will be something for every beer lover."

Tickets priced £10 include entry to one session, a 2022 Beer Festival tasting glass and a first drink free.

Tasting masterclasses will be held on Saturday afternoon and there will be live music throughout the festival.
