The Ropetackle Arts Centre, Attila The Stockbroker & Dark Star Brewery Proudly Present: The Fourth Annual Ropetackle Beer Festival 2013

Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd February 2013, Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham.

Last year’s Ropetackle Beer Festival was the best ever – the beer sold out at exactly the right time, always a good sign, so here we are again! More than 25 real ales from selected small independent breweries, plus numerous ciders & perries have been hand-picked to showcase the very best of Sussex and UK brewing – including some special selections from our buddies up the road at Dark Star Brewery.

The 2013 Ropetackle Beer Festival features some fantastic live music at both evening sessions, whilst the Saturday afternoon session is a mellower affair.

There’ll be plenty of seats in the main hall, enabling you to sit and enjoy your beer at a table if you choose – with some room for those who would like a dance, and plenty of reason to do so! The live music on Friday night will be gentler and more laid back than Saturday’s livelier acts. And let’s not forget the delicious food the Thunkshop crew will be serving.

We expect both the Friday and Saturday evening sessions to sell out well in advance so book your tickets without delay.

Fri 22nd Feb Evening Session: 6pm – 11.30pm

Entrance £6 | Food Available: Live music from local folk heroes Laura Ward & The Risen Road plus the wonderful POG.

Sat 23rd Feb Daytime Session: 12.05pm – 5.15pm

Entrance £3 | Food Available: Mellow afternoon session. No live music, but the full range of beers will be available.

Sat 23rd Feb Evening Session: 6.00pm – 11.30pm

Entrance £6 | Food Available: Live music from rumbustuous Kentish skiffle-punk outfit Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs plus supremely funny and extremely Yorkshire singer-songwriter Captain Hotknives.

To go with those lovely beers, Thunkshop Cafe Present:

Thunkshop Piefest all day Saturday, back by popular demand, a range of entirely home-made pies and our now famous sausage rolls starting from just £3.
