Don’t miss the annual Corfu Beer Festival

Wednesday 8th-Sunday 12th October 2014

CORFU MEETS THE UK

Corfu Beer Festival launched on May Day in Arillas

Almost 200 people came to Arillas on 1st May for the launch of the Corfu Beer Festival “Corfu Meets the UK”. The sun stayed out and people were entertained with live music from local bands throughout the day. Corfu Beer was supplied to all those thirsty guests and everyone could get a good idea of how it would feel to be at this year’s forthcoming Corfu Beer Festival in October.

The May Day launch which took place in Arillas at the venue of the Corfu Beer mircrobrewery was sponsored by Corfu Beer who generously provided their beer refreshments free to all guests! If you couldn’t attend, or didn’t hear about it, make sure you don’t miss out on more information about the festival in October. We will be sending out regular newsletter updates so stay informed and let us know if you have other friends who should be included in our mailings by contacting Sofia Kaloudi on sofiakal@corfubeer.com

Make a note in your diary:

This year’s annual Corfu Beer Festival takes place between Wednesday 8th and Sunday 12th October. After a very successful first time event last October where Corfu met Bavaria from Germany, this year England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales of the UK will be represented at the festival with their breweries alongside Greece and Corfu Beer. Each evening at the festival there will be live entertainment from both Greece and the UK. You will be able to hear the famous Scottish bagpipes, watch the English folk Morris dance from the Hammersmith Morris Men as well as being able to see the amazing Celtic Storm show with professional Irish dancers and musicians. There will be traditional Greek dancing throughout the week performing different regional dances to bouzouki music.
