We’re thrilled to be supporting Preston Grasshoppers’ Hopfest again and will be sponsoring 3 barrels of beer during the course of this popular event.
Hopfest has grown considerably since its launch 4 years ago and attracts hundreds of people over the 3 days, 6th, 7thand 8thJuly.
The beers Nugent Santé is sponsoring are from local brewer Avid Brewing, and comprise an IPA, an American Pale and Santé Pale, which is a different special brew each year.
Avid has been brewing real ale for several years and expanded to a much larger operation 15 months ago after acquiring Bowland Brewery’s original kit. This is their third year at Hopfest and it remains one of their favourite festivals.
David Cross, owner of Avid Brewing commented, “Paul Nugent of Nugent Santé is a great advocate of our brewery and jumped at the opportunity to sponsor our beers at Hopfest. We’re based near Lancaster but are making great inroads into Preston and have beers currently available at Owd Nells Tavern and previously at the Guild Ale House, The Continental and The Plungington Hotel. We’d love people to try our beers at Hopfest and discover how unique and flavoursome they are.”
Hopfest is expected to be a complete sell-out again this year and will include a Gin and Prosecco Marquee, live entertainment and a range of delicious meals cooked by Preston Grasshoppers’ very own chef.
Business networking starts at 12 noon on Friday 6thJuly and the event will then open to the public from 4pm on Friday right through until the afternoon of Sunday 8thJuly.
Do come along to Preston Grasshoppers’ Hopfest and join us for what promises to be a very entertaining festival.
