Festival Glass Theme 2018

Reals Ale Festival Theme 2018 - Bridgeness Pottery

If you've been to the festival before you will know that you need to get a commemorative glass to sample the beers!

And, you will realise, each year your festival glass has a logo or theme.

Ever since the very first festival, way back in 2001, they commemorate or celebrate something linked to Bo'ness in some way.

Last year it was the saving and refurbishment of a mooring buoy from the now unused harbour & dock.

It was hoped that it would be in-situ situated alongside the dock by now, but we all know just how long the planning process can take!

It's always a concern that we will run out of ideas for a theme but, something always seems to come along!

This year it commemorates the closing of the last pottery in Bo'ness 60 years ago!

18th Bo'ness Real Ale Festival 2018

Plans for this year's festival started earlier as it is happening a bit earlier too! But, is still well under way and pretty well done.

This year the Festival dates are:-

Friday 14 September, opening at 5pm
Saturday 15 September opening at 12 noon.

The theme has been agreedĀ and the glasses about to go into production (watch this space for next update). That, apart from choosing the beers, is probably one of the more important things to get organised!

All that remains now; to finalise what breweries and beers to get. Generally that's left to about a month before when it's known what the chosen brewers will have their lists. (More to come closer to the time.)

2017 was another successful festival

It's becoming a bit boring and repetitive but 2017 proved to be another successful festival with not many beers lasting out to the 'bitter' end!
