With less than a month to go, Rutland’s award-winning Grainstore Brewery is preparing for the 19th Annual Rutland Beer Festival which runs from Thursday 23rd August to Monday 27th August inclusive.

And this year, there are some surprises in store as the brewery is offering beer fans the chance to try 20 Scottish ales at their Oakham-based location.

Some of Scotland’s finest beers will be featured, including Black Isle Brewery’s Goldfinch, Tradewinds from Cairngorm Brewery and Stewart Brewery’s Edinburgh Gold.

These tempting tipples are coupled with an impressive range of music during this four-day event, which has free admission.

Live music will be performed by talented artists including Rutland Big Band; the four-piece blues group Risky Trick; vocalist Eleni Demetriou; Oakham-based singer and songwriter Jordon Poole; Dirty Rumour, a four-piece rock and pop band; female acoustic duo Union Avenue; Anglo-American singer Pembroke Tenneson, and Funked Up, also based in Oakham, consisting of five guys showcasing some of the best party music around.

Director Peter Atkinson said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Rutland Beer Festival again this month. As well as offering our own eclectic range of beers, we’re offering festival-goers the chance to taste a selection of 20 beers brewed north of the border.

“Rutland Beer Festival not only showcases what we do; it allows local music to ‘shine’ and entertain. It’s very much about the Rutland community coming together for food, real ales and live music and attracting new visitors to the area, too.”

The Grainstore Brewery Tap is open seven days a week and offers great pub food and brewery tours.

Grainstore Brewery was founded in 1994 by Tony Davis and Mike Davies. They converted a derelict Victorian grain store next to Oakham Railway Station by installing fermenting vessels, along with copper and conditioning tanks which eventually became the 15 barrel brew house that is so popular today. Tony’s son, William Davis and his business partner Peter Atkinson took the reins in 2014 and have continued to grow the business’ legacy.
