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)

www.baafest.co.uk

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.
