Two local beer festivals this month

Two forthcoming local beer festivals in the next couple of weeks. Local to Southport, that is:

On the 12 and 13 July, there will be a beer festival at the Scarisbrick Bowling Club in Falkland Road, Southport PR8 6LG.  Emily Bernard, 18, is raising money for Project Trust in order for her to go to Ghana for 12 months and live and volunteer in the very poor region of Abor. She will be helping young women become employable by teaching them English, Maths & Science. Emily has organised this beer festival to raise funds. There will be hot food on Friday night, a barbecue on Saturday from 1pm, and live music throughout including a special guest appearance from folk singer Ruth Notman. There will be 20 different real ales on tap, as well as normal bar service. Entry is £3.00 and includes a commemorative beer glass and programme. E-mail for more details.

From 22 to 28 July, the Freshfield pub will also be holding a beer festival. The Freshfield holds both the CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year (POTY) award as well as the all-Merseyside POTY. The latter will be presented during the festival; I'll add a note to this post when I know when that is. The Freshfield is in Massams Lane, Freshfield, Formby, a short walk from Freshfield station on the Northern Line.
