Real Ale Festival

18 Scottish Ales at the 18th Real Ale Festival

This year the 18th Cove and Kilcreggan Real Ale Festival is coming of age and there will be 18 fabulous ales from around Scotland and the usual tasty array of ciders. Beers such as Knockybuckle, Otto and Griselda and Scottish Scrum will be amongst a full range of strengths and styles.

Due to the current renovation work going on at the Hall we’ve enlisted the help of the folk behind the award winning Lost Bothy: Scottish Street Food based out of  The Machair in Glasgow who are putting together a mouth-watering menu to accompany the fine ales on offer. Check out lostbothy on Instagram. They have fed many a hungry mouth at events such as The Scottish Open and the Edinburgh Festival so we very much looking forward to having them at our festival this year.

Music includes the return of Festival favourites, The Midgierakers and Robert Ryan and this year there will be two further other live acts, from Balloch, Joe Quinn, and a fine new local band with some familiar faces in The Windjammers.

A fabulous day out - whatever you drink and whatever your age. So join us!
