Bandstand Beer Festival

The annual Bandstand Beer & Music Festival is the largest independant beer festival in the Scottish Highlands, attracted visitors from all over the UK.  This year's festival took place over nine days 11 - 20 April 2014 and had more beers, music and activities than ever before.

Over 160 casks of Scottish and English ales, ciders and European craft lagers were enjoyed over a wonderful week of great craic, live music, good food and friendship.  For the ale list with tasting notes click here

We enjoyed a fascinating Brewer Talk by Ken Duncan, Head Brewer from Inveralmond Brewery. We raised over £500 for MFR Cash for Kids -  A big thank you to everyone who contributed and especially to the brewereries for generously donating items to be sold or raffled for charity.  We have raised £6,500 for the charity so far.

We'd like to thank everyone who helped make the festival such a run-away success. The musicians, the brewers, our fantastic chefs and incredible, hard-working staff.

It's hard to imagine how we will top this year's festival.  But we'll be announcing dates for next year's event in the Autumn.
Cheers and hope to see you soon!
