MAROURDE - MEET THE MAKER & TASTING
FRIDAY 2ND AUGUST, 5 - 8PM
FUGGLES TUNBRIDGE WELLS & TONBRIDGE
Have you discovered Mead yet? We’re hosting Will and Scott from Marourde - a meadery based 30 minutes away in Mereworth.
Mead is a delicious honey based brew - produced using honey sourced locally, water and a sprinkle of yeast. It’s simple, natural and tasty. The guys will be on hand to offer you tasters and talk you through the process of making mead (and if you ask really nicely, they might even tell you about the Winery as well…)
Will & Scott produce 3 varieties which we’ll have for you to try: Hemp & Hop, Manuka Flower & Oak, Elderberry & Elderflower.
So if you haven’t tried these great products yet, pop in for a taste!

‘AU-GEUZE-ST’ FESTIVAL OF SOUR, WILD, FUNK & MIXED FERMENTATION!
FROM 15TH - 31ST AUGUST
FUGGLES TUNBRIDGE WELLS & TONBRIDGE
Craft beer has seen some amazing things happen over the past 5 years. As have we. And along the way we’ve discovered some utterly outstanding breweries making some outstanding beers. We’ve also learnt a lot - and one of those of things we’ve learnt is that mixed fermentation, wild and sour beers (that is beers fermented with wild, funky, different or mixed strains of yeast) are utterly delicious. We’ve turned people who don’t drink beer into beer lovers thanks to these critter filled beers and as we’ve recently taken a shipment of amazing mixed fermentation bottles in from the US, (plus, we’ve got a cellar full of rare aged bottles too).
We’ll be kicking things off on the 15th with a bottle tasting from our cellars. This will focus on bottles we’ve aged, hidden away and matured over the years for you. It may also include some new bits you’ve not yet tried!
What to expect: 6 beers on tap at each site focusing on mixed fermentation, including Pales, Sours, Fruit, Saisons, Farmhouse ales, Wild Ales and well anything in-between. We’ve a rare keg of Cantillon stashed away for an event like this, plus some aged beers too.
Alongside this we’ll also have some of our large format (750ml) bottles available by the glass throughout the festival.
And throughout the festival, we’ll also be offering 10% off any of our sharing bottles to drink in or take away!
Featured breweries (hopefully anyway, some keg, some bottle): Burning Sky (UK), Little Earth Project (UK), The Kernel (UK), Mills (UK), Wild Beer Co (UK), Yonder (UK), Chorlton (UK), Lindemans (Belgium), Boon (Belgium), Beersel (Belgium), De Cam (Belgium), Alvinne (Belgium), Cantillon (Belgium), Girardin (Belgium), 3 Fontenein (Belgium), Tilquin (Belgium), Verzet (Belgium), Orval (Belgium), Nevel Artisanal (Netherlands), Garden Path (US), Free Will (US), Fonta Flora (US) PLUS more to be confirmed!
We’ll confirm bottle lists, tap lists and when certain beers will be tapped in due course!
