GET set for an ale-ian invasion towards the end of this month!

Denbighshire’s top beer festival will this month attract over 600 thirsty customers to sample more than 35 craft beers, lagers and ales.

Denbigh’s historic town hall will again play host to the 16th Denbigh Beer Festival on Saturday, September 28, with organisers promising the 2019 event will be the best yet.

The festival, run by Denbigh Round Table, is building on the success of previous years and as well as those beers from across Wales, it will also feature locally-produced ciders and prosecco for those who prefer grape – and apple - to grain.

The event is expected to raise over £8,000 for local good causes and this year’s chosen charities are Cystic Fibrosis, and Cancer Research, alongside The Friends of Ysgol Brondyffryn North Wales regional centre of excellence for teaching children on the autistic spectrum.

The latter charity is in the process of developing an outdoor learning environment.

Joanne Morris, chairperson of Friends of Ysgol Brondyffryn, said: "The development will cater for all needs and will includes sensory and forest schools type equipment, as well as horticultural aspects.

"It’s all very exciting and a donation from Denbigh Round Table would be very much appreciated."

Chairman of Denbigh Round Table David Jones said: “The beer festival is by far our biggest fundraiser, it’s such a great event that brings the community together and the money raised from the day literally saves lives.

"This year we have donated money for many cancer charities alongside support for families who have had unfortunate life changing events.”

The festival is now an established event on many ale lovers’ calendars and as the event has grown in popularity so has the demands of organising it.

Beer Festival chairman Rhodri Jones said: “The event is now so popular we have had to increase the amount of cider and beer to keep up with demand.

“This year we will also provide state of the art toilet facilities, eco-friendly beer glasses, a large outdoor marquee, local food and a bespoke outdoor stage for the live music that starts at 6pm.

“This year’s music line-up includes Jacob Elwy, Denbigh’s own Keenan Jones and headlining the event are Yubaba, a seven-piece band providing unstoppable mix of funk, soul and reggae."

Artisan Windows of Denbigh are the main sponsors.

Entry tickets can be purchased at the doors on the day of the festival and are priced at £5 each.

Doors open at midday and close at 10.30pm.
