Renfrewshire CAMRA Beer Tent at Paisley Food & Drink Festival 2019

The Renfrewshire Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) are teaming up with the organisers of the Paisley Food & Drink Festival 2019 to host a Renfrewshire CAMRA Beer Tent.

The Festival, which takes place on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 April 2019, will showcase more than 40 top food and drink traders from across Scotland, a demonstration kitchen with celebrity chefs and live entertainment in the stunning surroundings of Paisley Abbey.

For the past five years, Paisley Food & Drink Festival has been staged alongside Renfrewshire CAMRA’s annual Beer Festival in Paisley Town Hall.

The iconic Victorian Paisley Town Hall currently undergoing a major £22million refurbishment, organisers of both events are working together to host a Beer Tent featuring a range of real cask conditioned ales for visitors to enjoy across the two-day event.

The marquee will be located on Bridge Street, Paisley, as part of the Festival grounds, and will have around 70 cask conditioned real ales and craft beers available.

There will also be a wide range of bottled beer from around the world and vegan options for those attending the event.

Karen Moore of Renfrewshire Branch CAMRA (pictured left with Tracey Murray-Cassidy and Stephen) said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Renfrewshire Council to host a Renfrewshire CAMRA Beer Tent at this year’s Paisley Food and Drink Festival.

“The marquee will have something for all tastes with a wide selection of real cask conditioned ales, craft beers, international bottles and much more.

“With its handy location on Bridge Street, visitors can have a drink in the Beer Tent and wander out to the main Festival area to enjoy the range of street food, live music and entertainment in store.

Karen added: “I can’t wait to see lots of familiar faces at the Paisley Food and Drink Festival. There’s so much for everyone to enjoy across the two days in April.”

Paisley Food and Drink Festival is one of Scotland’s largest outdoor food and drink festivals. This year’s line-up will also see delicious street food with traders from PLATFORM on Tour – the independent street food market who reside in Glasgow’s Argyle Street Arches, tasting sessions with Gin 71, live music and entertainment programmed by Paisley’s famous The Bungalow music venue, children’s workshops, picnic areas and much more.
