Paisley Beer Festival

Paisley’s ever-popular beer festival is back for another outing – and this year it’s being served up with a side order of food. The 28th Paisley Beer Festival – run by the Renfrewshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale – will be in Paisley Town Hall from Wednesday 22 to Saturday 25 April. The event is Scotland’s biggest real ale festival and every year attracts thousands from across the country to sample a wide selection of real beers, ales and ciders.

And this year for the first time it will run alongside a one-day food festival – organised by Renfrewshire Council – on the Saturday only.

Both events are taking place as part of Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, supported by Event Scotland and Visit Scotland, which aims to showcase Scotland’s outstanding natural larder and exceptional natural produce.

The food festival will be in Abbey Close between noon and 6pm and includes the Slug in a Bottle Market, food/craft workshops, live music from Loud ‘n’ Proud, and kids' entertainment including TV's Mr Bloom.

Focusing on quality Scottish produce, the food festival also includes the usual twice-monthly Paisley Farmers’ Market just up the road at Paisley Cross, where visitors will be able to take in live cookery demos.

Meanwhile, the beer festival will take in a first of its own, with Renfrewshire CAMRA having added an all-new wine bar featuring specialty wines from across Scotland.

Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall met with some of the members of the local CAMRA committee to help publicise the event, joined by Andy Hare of Hillington-based JAW Brew, this year’s glass sponsors.
