Unfortunately I was unable to make the Festival but my new friend and acquaintance Mr. Alan Beck and his son went along on Sunday to sample the delights of the day. Here’s what Alan had to say…
Re the Hilden Beer Festival
A typical wet Sunday afternoon . It was . But it wasn’t . Those who took Courage in hand , or indeed , many other fine liquid refreshment , found that the Hilden Beer and Music Festival was the place to go on such a day.
Tents, awnings , tepees , umbellas and see through pacamacs defeated the elements and let everyone enjoy the ambience and bonhomie that was as evident as the beer and the beat . The music was raunchy , the kiddies danced and splashed in the puddles, the adults talked and tippled , and the food was just perfect for the occasion .
The musicians had us all shaking and spilling our drinks in time to the tempo. To those who didn’t make its a case of “Sorry can you come back next year !” We certainly will .

Thanks very much Alan for your input and for kindly allowing us to use your images from the day. Hopefully next year we’ll get a pint together!
Thank you also to Frances from Hilden Brewery!
