Top quality beer festivals make return to Belfast: ABV and Belfast Craft Beer Festival

By Staff Reporter

Belfast is once again set to play host to a number of top beer festivals in the city this year.

That includes ABV 17, which returns to the former Victorian-era Carlisle Memorial Church in north Belfast on September 1-2.

It's being organised by three beer fans, including Michael Kerr, Felicia Matheson and Darren Nugent, and features some of the best beers from UK, Ireland and beyond.

Meanwhile, next month sees the return of the Belfast Craft Beer Festival. Last year marked the inaugural festival, and saw brewers from across the island taking part, with brands including Bushmills, Mac Ivor's Cider, Brehon Brewhouse and Whitewater Brewery among those included.

The festival will run over four nights at Belfast's Custom House Square from Thursday, May 25 until Sunday, May 28.

This year organisers hope to include more than 150 beers, ciders, whiskeys and even a few cocktails in the festival.

Last year's event also includes several artisan food producers such as Co Down cheese-maker Mike's Fancy Cheese and Belfast pie maker Jolly Pies.
