Perth Beer Festival Partners with PADS

Put your pooch through its paces at Perth Beer Festival

Perthshire dog-owners are invited to bring their canine companions along to join in ‘dog agility’ fun at Perth Beer Festival on Saturday 12thMay, 12 noon-5pm.

Dog Agility by PADS

Perth Beer Festival has teamed up with Perthshire animal welfare charity, PADS, to provide a fantastic new addition to Perth Beer Festival outdoor activities, the PADS dog agility area. Dog lovers will be able to bring their best dog friend along to Perth Beer Festival to take part in the fun Dog Agility Course by PADS.

New partnership

Announcing the new addition to the line-up, Event Organiser, Allan Brown said, “We have a great line-up of fantastic entertainment on the North Inch at Perth Beer Festival including live-music stage, child-friendly activities and rugby 7s for festival goers to enjoy. We’re delighted to welcome PADS to our event & believe that dog owners will enjoy putting their canine companions through their paces”.

The tie-up might seem unusual however there’s a strong, shared connection. Perth Beer Festival is a fundraising event organised and managed by Perthshire Rugby Club. Life-long Perthshire Rugby supporter, Graham Watson, who sadly passed away last year was also a strong supporter & former Chairman of PADs and is greatly missed by members of both organisations.

Fun for dogs

The dog-friendly assault course will be designed & hosted by Auchterarder based, specialist dog trainer, Kairyn Beatson of Kairyn’s Canine Capers on behalf of PADS. It promises great fun for your pooch to enjoy within a dedicated area, adjacent to the Perth Beer Festival marquee, The area will be open from 12noon-4pm. Entry to the beer festival is free, dog agility will be £2 a shot with proceeds split between PADS and Perth Rugby Fundraising. This year’s event will also feature a splash of gin with a new gin bar featuring an excellent range of craft gins specially sourced from across Scotland alongside the festival’s usual line up of great beer alongside a delicious range of locally sourced BBQ food.

New Gin Experience at Perth Beer Festival

Perth Beer Festival has teamed up with craft gin producer, Strathearn Distillers, to create a dedicated new gin bar for this year’s Perth Beer Festival.

Announcing the partnership, Perth Beer Festival Organiser, Allan Brown, said, “Over the last 8 years Perth Beer Festival has gone from strength to strength. It’s a fantastic community event with live music, rugby 7s, and family activities. This year we’re delighted to include a new, dedicated gin bar in the Perth Beer Festival marquee as we continue to strive to offer unique taste experiences to our customers and extend the appeal of our fundraising event.

Craft Gin Range

As a specialist craft gin producer, Strathearn Distillers is the ideal partner. Their expertise will enable us to provide a tailored taste experience for Perth Beer Festival fans beyond our craft ale range. Strathearn Distillers’ gins are truly hand–crafted and small batch. We’re delighted to receive the support of Managing Director Tony Reeman-Clark and his team to partner with us & lead the new Gin Bar”.

A hand-picked selection of 8 craft gins will be on sale in the Perth Beer Festival Marquee for fans’ delectation.  The range will be led by Strathearn favourites, Heather Rose Gin (fragrant and light, yet sweet and spicy the heather and rose lend a Prosecco character) and Scottish Gin (a voyage from a smooth, sweet start switching to a light peppery mouth-feel followed by a gentle sherbet finish as the citrus develops). Each gin will be served with the recommended mixers, garnishes and tasting notes.
