With the pandemic and in the interests of safe distancing, we've decided we can't hold Smokefest this year.
The social side is a key part of our brewery-hosted events, and we know from previous years that meeting up and chatting with like-minded people is really important to the atmosphere.
But once everything is post-COVID , we'll see you at Smokefest 2021!
Here at Torrside Brewing, we love smoked beer - and feel everyone else would too, if they just had the chance to find the right style…
So for 2 years we've put on what we think is the UK’s - possibly the world's - only 100% smoked beer festival, and you can expect another in 2020.
It'll be early November, we think - we'll fix the date once we know when the other autumnal beer-fests are happening.
As a taster, 2018's line-up is below...
And we have a good range of smoked snacks – cheeses, meat, nuts, and, well, anything else smoked we can think of.
In 2019, guests brought various intriguing things for on-demand cold smoking: tea-cakes, flying saucers, and Coca-cola all worked surprisingly well.
We look forward to continuing these traditions when we welcome you in 2021!
Probably early November
12 noon - 8pm
At the Brewery (see below)
£TBC (plus booking fee)
How do I book?
Very easy - just click here!
(when we're live, the link will work)
How do I get there?
Trains are convenient! - we're 3 minutes from Newtown station, and 10 mins from Central. New Mills is around a 40 minute journey direct from Manchester Piccadilly. And we'll be watching for service announcements and changes on the day to make sure you all get home!
If someone drives you, while there's no parking possible at the brewery there is nearby on-road parking (or the Newtown station car park).
Over-18s only., except for dogs - dogs of all ages are welcome!
The Marina is private property and the residents' living space - please don't wander around outside the brewery!
