2020 starts with a bang for the Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival team with our first – and second overall – craft beer popup at Bracknell Rugby Football Club set for March.
The first pop up event was held in November and was a big success thanks in no small part to the number of attendees who came along to sample the delights of Siren Craft Brew, Ascot Brewing Company’s Disruption arm and cider from Tutts Clump.
For the second event on Friday 13th March, we’ll have a brand new brewery line up joining Tutts Clump at the Rugby Club from 6pm. Details of those breweries will be announced shortly on our facebook page, but we promise they are a couple of local belters!
There will also be food available on the night from the Rugby Club kitchen, those of you who attended in November will undoubtedly have very fond memories of the Mac & Cheese!
This time round there is a charge for entry set at £5 for adults, £2.50 for OAPs and Free to Rugby Club members which will go toward helping us improve our main event – the Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival 2020 on Sunday 24th May.
Breweries that will be at The Scrum
We’ve got a great line up of breweries again for you at March’s ‘The Scrum’ pop up craft beer bar.
