We’re passionate about a lot of things (beer for starters!). Being a part of the local community and live music are two of our other passions. I’ve often toyed with the idea of suggested beer and music pairings rather than food. Festivals & shows are great community events where people get together to relax, chew the fat and often have a pint or two. We have some cracking little festivals up here in the North Tyne /Redesdale area. If you’re into music (and beer) then check them out;
BAAfest (Bellingham, Northumberland)
We ‘ll always have a soft spot for BAAfest not just because of the quality live music, the best festival toilets ever but because we brewed our inaugural beer with an ‘F&L’ pump clip for them back in September 2016. Since then we have continued to support this festival with beer and running at the bar. If you’re into acoustic / folk/ jazz / traditional / world music (and beer), then check this quality Northumberland festival out.
Redefest (Rochester, Northumberland)
Redefest is our local, community run, not-for-profit music festival in Rochester, Northumberland. The festival always takes part on the first Fri / Sat of August each year. We’ve been involved from the first year of the festival in 2007. Live music over 2 covered stages, workshops, food stalls, family friendly and a good beer tent! Plus, as profits are distributed to local charitable causes you can drink in the knowledge that your helping the world!
Rede River Rocks (Otterburn, Northumberland)
Otterburn’s own music festival ‘Rede River Rocks’ is held at the RTC Sports Centre, Otterburn at the end of June. Another chance to enjoy a pint of F&L whilst listening to quality live music.
