Is there a better way to kick off the gorgeous Scottish Summer than a day out soaking up the sun on the North Inch surrounded by family and friends at the annual Perth Beer Festival?
Organised by Perthshire Rugby, the 2019 event will be the ninth Perth Beer Festival and its popularity and reputation continues to grow and grow. This year’s festival will take place on Saturday 11th May and as always you better get your tickets early as the main event in the evening has sold out every year!
Sponsored by Perth based Tan International, it has become a leading family friendly event in the heart of Scotland – with a great selection of craft ales alongside family friendly activities including climbing wall, children’s rides, rugby nippers & Perthshire 7s rugby on Perth’s North Inch.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Perth Beer Festival”, comments Allan Brown, Chief Executive of event organiser, Perthshire Rugby. Along side our brilliant line-up of craft ales, the Strathearn Craft Gin Bar is back after its hugely popular debut last year. We’ll also have live music throughout the afternoon & our family friendly activities “Along side our brilliant line-up of craft ales, the Strathearn Craft Gin Bar is back after its hugely popular debut last year.
