More events are on the way after 1,000 people enjoyed 24 varieties of beer at a brewery’s first festival.
Towcester Mill Brewery opened in May as the town’s first for 100 years and to mark a promising start for the business, its three owners wanted to throw an autumn festival for the community.
More than 2,000 drinks vouchers were sold at the event last weekend, and the most popular choice was a seasonal fresh green hops beer.
David Williams, who runs the brewery in Moat Lane with John Evans and Ray Hunt, said: “The highlight for me was seeing such a cross-section of people enjoying it.
“Kids were making dens in the garden and everybody was have some really good fun. There was beer and food and lots of great comments coming back our way which we all really enjoyed.”
Mr Williams said they are making plans for a Christmas Fair in December where the trio will sell their festive beer Santa’s Tipple in a two litre Grolsch-style gift pack.
They are also hoping to host a second festival in mid to late spring, bringing in more stalls to sell treats and gifts.
Mr Williams said: “I’d like to thank the local people for coming along and the members of the brewery who helped behind the bar and put in some free time to make it happen.”
