Organisers of a major beer festival being held at St George’s Hall later this month say that three sessions are now sold out and are urging people to buy tickets for the remaining sessions as soon as possible.

The four-day event, which takes place from September 26 to 29, will showcase as many as 300 real ales and ciders from more than 100 different breweries across the UK, including many sourced locally.

It has been organised by Liverpool Organic Brewery, which will display more than 20 of its own ales, and is split across three morning and three afternoon sessions, as well as an all-day session on Sunday.

All tickets for Friday evening and both Saturday sessions have now been sold, and would-be visitors are being urged to secure their tickets for Thursday and Sunday soon to avoid disappointment.

Mark Hensby, managing director of Liverpool Organic Brewery, said: “We are thrilled that demand across all four days has surpassed expectations and we fully expect to welcome at least 5,000 visitors during the festival.

“Friday night and both Saturday sessions are now sold out and we think Thursday and Sunday won’t be far behind, so anyone planning to attend should buy their tickets sooner rather than later.

“There is clearly a strong appetite for experiencing quality produced, locally sourced beers and ciders. A large number of customers come from around the UK, with some even travelling from as far away as Europe and the United States to sample the festival.

“We have held a number of successful festivals in Waterloo and we also have one coming up at The Black E, but St George’s Hall represents a whole new level and this will certainly be our largest event to date.

“However, our visitors can rest assured that beer resources won’t run dry and we will certainly have enough supply on tap to keep serving well beyond Sunday.”
