The event begins at 12 noon and running until 8pm, and will include other breweries alongside Ferry Brewery’s own ales including Alechemy, Fierce, Dead End Machine breweries and others.

Edinburgh-based Brewmaster and Director of Ferry Brewery, Mark explains: “Last year we had visitors from Glasgow, Falkirk, Bo’ness, Livingston, Bathgate, Broxburn, Dunfermline to Glenrothes, Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. Everywhere, you name it!

“To be able to host an event of this scale and attract and bring people together from all over Scotland to South Queensferry is very rewarding.”

“We are very excited to be hosting Ferry Fest 19 and hopefully we can see even more faces from places of Scotland afar, ready to share their stories with us over a beer while gazing across one of Scotland’s famous bridges.”

As well as award winning breweries, there will be a prosecco and wine bar, cider and food is due to be served by street food vendors such as GastroGrilla, The Thirsty Pallet, Mimi’s Bakehouse.

Entertainment is to be supplied by well-known Edinburgh entertainer, musician, South Queensferry’s Graeme Pearson; out of space band, The Super Moons; and DJ set and entertainment from Envisia.

Children can be kept entertained with face painting, a magician, balloon making and visiting the candy stall.

Mark continues: “We made sure Ferry Fest 19 has a little something for everyone in the family. It was important to us that we encourage a family-friendly, everyone is welcome approach.

“As always we would like to thank everyone in South Queensferry and the surrounding areas. Their backing is the reason a local brewery like us succeeds. It’s important to always support local.”

The inception of the event was originally coined by soaring attendances and demand from Ferry Brewery’s Lothians-based monthly beer and music event, Ferry Brewery Nights.

The event is sponsored by malt supplier, Muntons and designers Smash Digital.
