BRIGG BEER FESTIVAL 2019 - DATES & VENUE
Dates and details have been revealed for Brigg Beer Festival 2019 which is to be held at a different venue.
Organised by Brigg District Lions, it will take place on Thursday, May 16, Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18.
The venue is Brigg Servicemen's Club, off Coney Court (adjoining the town's main car park).
Many people like to attend the festival on its opening night, when the first pint will be pulled and enjoyed at 7pm.
A wide range of beers produced by breweries across the UK will be on offer - detailed list to follow nearer the time.
Other drinks will be available to supplement the real ales.
We think 2019 will see the 29th Brigg Beer Festival hosted by the club.
One of the earliest was in one of the bars at the Angel Hotel after it had closed as a hostelry.
Other venues used include John Reid's haulage depot, on Atherton Way (for many years) and the Nelthorpe Arms, Bridge Street.
The Nelthorpe, which staged the 2018 festival, has since closed and been converted to purely residential use.
Brigg Beer Festival is one of the town's "main events" on the social calendar and always draws visitors from far beyond Brigg.
The Lions say they are welcoming beer barrel sponsorship for the 2019 event from local businesses.
Formed in 1968, the local club undertakes fundraising to assist various worthy causes.
