KEEP IT TRAD – A TASTING OF TRADITIONAL STYLES AND MODERN CLASSICS

FRIDAY MAY 31st, 5.30PM

Did you know that since 2007 the amount of cask beer sold in the UK has halved? At Pellicle we think this is a tragedy. There are few things we love more than a proper pint of real ale in a good pub, and we feel duty bound to celebrate and preserve this crucial element of British culture so it can be enjoyed by future generations. Join us for a tasting of traditional beers and modern classics on cask—including the all important Fyne Ales Jarl—as we discuss what can be done to preserve interest in these wonderful beers.

HOP RUBBING WITH YAKIMA CHIEF HOPS

SATURDAY JUNE 1st, 11AM

For the early risers at FyneFest our friends at Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) have a sensory treat in store for you. Come along to the Origins tent nice and earlier to get your hands on some of the most exciting North American hop varieties, and learn how they impact the flavour and aroma of your favourite beers. For the more adventurous of you, there may even be some early morning beer samples, so you can taste how these hops have been put into action!

THE HANGOVER SESSIONS WITH WILD & SOUR BEERS

SATURDAY  JUNE 1st, 1PM

Forget the bloody mary’s and bucks fizz, instead why don’t you join us for a hangover-curing* tasting of wild and sour beer, and gently ease into your Saturday. This panel will feature some of the brightest stars among the growing number of British producers who are invested in producing delicate, nuanced and complex beers that have as much in common with wine and cider as they do beer itself. As tastings go, this one might just surprise you, and as such is not to be missed!

(*Hangover curing properties are not guaranteed.)

IPA IS STILL COOL, OK!

SATURDAY JUNE 1st, 3PM

Over the past decade or so the swathe of American influence on British beer has seen IPA slowly come to dominate the taplists at brewery taprooms and beer bars nationwide. For those who’ve been enthusiastic about beer for long enough, it’s easy to feel jaded by this and instead reach for a nice cold German lager, or head to the pub for a reassuring pint of cask bitter. This tasting is all about reminding our jaded selves how wonderful these beers can taste, as we work our way through some of the most interesting IPAs pouring at this year’s festival, produced by some of the most exciting breweries in the country!
