The Black and Amber Beer Festival is coming to a town in South Lakeland as part of remembrance weekend.

The Handsome Brewery, at Bowston Bridge in Kendal, is putting on an exclusive event at Kendal Rugby Club, Mintbridge, where there will be over 40 different types of beer and cider from across the county and beyond.

The gates at Mintbridge will be open from noon on Saturday November 10 and will close at last orders. The Brewery is putting on the event to raise money for the Royal British Legion and Blind Veterans UK, formerly known as St Dunstans.


Tickets cost £5 and the money raised will be divided between the two chosen charities. Free commemorative engraved glasses will also be handed out with every ticket bought.

UnTethered, a band of multi-instrumentalists, will be performing at the festival.

There will also be hot food served during the day between 2pm to 4pm, and 6pm to 8pm.
