Sessions & Sours Beer Festival 2018

Three years ago we held a summer bash at the brewery called Sessions & Sours. Every year since we’ve been asked routinely whether it will ever see a sequel… well now it’s back! This is our summer yard party. A showcase in crushable pales and zingy refreshing sours brewed in Finchampstead and beyond.

As always – expect new and exclusive Siren brews, special guest beers, the finest street food we can track down, good tunes playing all day long and a couple of surprises.

Please note that we are making this a ticket-only event. For £13.00 (+ Fees) you will receive a souvenir glass for the day and drinks tokens to the value of around £10.00.

Transport will be provided to and from Wokingham Train Station. You can reach Wokingham direct from London Waterloo in approximately 60 minutes. You can also get to Wokingham from Reading Station direct in around 10 minutes, Reading offers links all over the country.

Alternatively, we recommend using the Reading Buses Leopard 3 service to reach Hogwood Lane Industrial Estate from Wokingham, Reading or Bracknell. The bus stops are just a short walk from the front of the Hogwood Lane Industrial Estate. For further information, check the Reading Buses Map and Reading Buses Timetables.

We have also arranged a special discount at a local hotel, The Kingsley at Eversley. Simply quote ‘Siren Craft Brew’ when booking over the telephone and you’ll get 10% off their nightly rate.

As always, kids and dogs are welcome! Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. More will be announced in the build up to the event. We also have a number of volunteer opportunities for the event, please contact us if you would like to be involved, outlining any previous experience you have.
