A charity event run by volunteers

The team first came together in 2013 when our Chairman, Andrew Malloy, had the great idea of a creating a ‘Knutsford Beer Festival’. Since then, we have delivered four highly successful events raising over £16,000 for local charities. Hosted this year for the first time at the Courthouse in central Knutsford, we hope this year will be the best one yet! Here’s an introduction to our team that of volunteers that work behind the scenes to bring you this celebration of craft beer in heart of Cheshire.
