Planning for the 33rd Ipswich Beer and Cider Festival is well underway, and Rob, our Festival Organiser and Head Brewer at the Briarbank, is certainly having a great time speaking with both local and national breweries about having their beers available at the festival in July.
Earlier this week, Rob announced that the local base brewery, Burnt Mill Brewery in Stowmarket, has joined his list of brewers showcasing their beer at the Ipswich Beer and Cider Festival. Located close to Suffolk’s county town Ipswich, Burnt Mill Brewery opened in 2017, and they have been producing a consistent stream of delicious craft beers ever since.
Whilst their range looks to focus on unfiltered pale beers, Rob has also enjoyed some of their delicious dark beers, and whilst he’s yet to try their mixed ferm range, they’re certainly on the list. In fact, Rob tells us it’s one of the breweries where he gets brewer and brewery star-struck, and he often picks up a can or two of Burnt Mill whenever he sees one on the shelves.
Having an Ipswich Beer and Cider Festival without Burnt Mill just wouldn’t feel right, and we’re excited some of their beers will be available throughout the four days. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels and beers page for details of which of the Burnt Mill beers will be available.
The Ipswich Beer and Cider Festival will take place at St Clement’s Church in Ipswich between Thursday, 27 July, and Sunday, 30 July. Tickets are now on sale; book before midnight on 30 June 2023 and benefit from our Early Bird Prices. Day or weekend tickets, the choice is yours.
