The 2nd St Helens Beer Festival will be held in the unique setting of the North West Museum of Road Transport, featuring more than 50 real ales, ciders and perries. It's just a few minutes walk from the bus and railway stations. While you're sampling the range of fine drinks, you can if you wish admire a selection of old vehicles ~ or ignore them as you see fit! It's certainly an unusual venue for a beer festival. This year sees the very first Pie Fest with pies supplied from a variety of local pie producers at all sessions.
If you also fancy a pint in an award-winning pub while you're in the area, the Turks Head is not far away. The festival begins at 6 pm on Thursday 1st October, and is open all day Friday and Saturday, the 2nd & 3rd October.
