The Angus Brewfest will be held at the Strathmore Hall in John Street on Saturday, October 17 to mark this the year of food and drink.

The event will have cask ales from local producers including Mor Brewing and Kirrie Ales plus the mighty Brewdog - a fantastic success story from the North East of Scotland.

If you are a cider drinker then Thistly Cross and Cairn O Mohr will quench your thirst, and for the spirit lover Angus has certainly got their very own premium Vodka from Ogilvy Vodka.

To keep the gin drinkers happy local girl Kim Gall of Gin Bothy will bring her delicious mulled gin and raspberry gin.

The organisers have also catered for lovers of cocktails using award winning Summerhouse drinks and for the designated drivers there will of course be non-alcoholic drinks available.

Puddledub Pork will take along a hog roast and there will be lots of tasty snacks and nibbles available; as if this wasn’t enough there will be live music and traditional pub games

Organisers are delighted to say the event has been well supported from local businesses with EQ Accountants sponsoring the souvenir tasting glass and interest and support from Astute Ltd, Lawrie and Symington, David Petrie Joiners and Isabella’s Preserves.

Angus Brewfest Co-ordinator Carol Robbie is looking forward bringing this brand new event to Angus and making the Angus Brewfest an annual event that everyone will be proud of.
