Bollington Brewery launches Siam Stout for beer festival

Real ale fans visiting the Bollington Beer Festival this weekend are invited to toast the event with a festival ale, brewed specially to mark the celebration.

Bolly Beer Fest

Siam Stout has been created by the ale connoisseurs at Bollington Brewery. The brewery’s signature stout has ‘gone east’ with a definitive Thai influence. The beer is infused with Naga Chilli, which brings a subtle lip-tingling heat, while fresh ginger and lemongrass temper the flavour. This oriental twist on the traditional brew proves that stout isn’t a tipple reserved solely for the festive season.

Celebrating its fifth successive year, the event attracts beer and cider lovers from far and wide to sample a range of 46 ales and 15 ciders carefully selected by head brewer, Simon Whatmuff and the brewery’s commercial manager, Amy Wood.

Committed to giving back to the local community, a proportion of the funds raised at the festival will be set aside to provide small grants of up to £1,000 for specific community projects.

Commenting on the event, Lee Wainwright, owner of The Bollington Brewing Co. said: “A staple in the local calendar, The Bollington Beer Festival is back with a bang! Visitors with a passion for ale and cider are in for a treat with our host of specialities to tempt the palate. A lot of work has gone into the event by the organising committee to ensure that locals and visitors to our village can enjoy a cracking weekend.”
