Inveralmond backs Perth Beer Festival

Craft beer will be flowing again as Inveralmond backs Perth Beer Festival

 Perth beer brand Inveralmond is again backing one of the Fair City’s favourite get-togethers – Perth Beer Festival, sponsored by Tan International.

The team behind the Festival has been working with Inveralmond to produce a superb selection of craft ales and beers from 12 noon until 6pm on Saturday, May 12. Inveralmond and sister brand Innis & Gunn will also be pouring at the two ticketed events that form part of the Festival: Perth Comedy Night on Friday, May 11, and the Big Bash Finale on Saturday, May 12.

The team at Inveralmond, which became part of the Innis & Gunn family in 2016, will have their full range pouring, including Ossian, heralded as Champion Beer of Scotland. Also making an appearance will be special guest beer ThaiPA, a tropical IPA with chillies and lemongrass.

Perth Beer Festival, which takes place at the city’s North Inch park, will also feature beers from Loch Lomond Brewery, Broughton Ales and the Cromary Brewing Company.

Fergus Clark, founder and chief executive of the Inveralmond Beer brand, said a collaboration with Perth Beer Festival “makes perfect sense”.

Said Fergus: “Inveralmond Beer is Perth born and bred, or should I say born and brewed, so it makes perfect sense to lend our support once more to this excellent community event. We look forward to raising our glasses again to another successful Perth Beer Festival.”

Allan Brown, chief executive of Perthshire Rugby, organisers of Perth Beer Festival, added: “We’re thrilled to once again have Inveralmond supporting Perth Beer Festival. The weather forecast is good, tickets are selling at record levels and it’s set to be another cracking weekend jam packed full of activities for everyone, including families.”

Perth Beer Festival

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.
