Pubs get set for Three Valleys Beer Festival

Have your say

A north Derbyshire beer festival on Saturday, June 7 is set to be the biggest yet - with 13 venues available to dedicated pub crawlers.

Organisers say the annual Three Valleys Festival is expected to attract hundreds of beer fans to the area, with participating pubs stretching from Bradway to Barlow.

The festival is based around the S17 and S18 post codes, and promises a great range of beers to try with many pubs also offering traditional ciders, food and live music.

The venues chosen are as varied as possible, to offer a different atmosphere and experience.

They include country pubs, suburban locals, town centre bars and even a brewery on a farm.

Entry is free to all the venues and a free bus service will run every half hour between the pubs from midday until around 11pm.

The service will also call at Dronfield Station where festival-goers can simply go from train to bus - alternatively they can board at one of the venues.

The bus will take them on a hop-on, hop-off tour of all the venues to enjoy what is on offer, while taking in the local scenery.

This year’s venues are: Barlow Brewery, Barlow; Castle Inn, Bradway; Coach & Horses, Dronfield; Dronfield Arms, Dronfield; Green Dragon, Dronfield; Jolly Farmer, Dronfield Woodhouse; Miners Arms, Dronfield Woodhouse; Royal Oak, Coal Aston; Talbot Arms, Dronfield Woodhouse; Three Tuns, Dronfield Hallowes; Travellers Rest, Apperknowle; Victoria Inn, Dronfield and the White Swan, Dronfield.
