5 FEBRUARY 2016, BRISTOL: Hope & Anchor Bristol is delighted to announce its first beer festival of 2016 in conjunction with neighbouring pubs The Eldon House and Bag of Nails.  The ‘Brandon Beer Festival’ runs from Thursday 4th February to Sunday 7th FebruaryThere are over 60 beers being served across the three pubs. The Hope & Anchor is offering over 20 beers sourced from areas affected by flooding in the UK to support their local economy. Ten pence per pint will be going to search and rescue flood charities.

Peter Gibbs, Managing Director of the Hope & Anchor comments: “This beerfest is quite different from the usual beer festivals we run, showcasing local breweries, as we wanted to start the year off with more of a community spirit by joining up with neighbouring pubs and as raising much needed funds for the areas in the UK most affected by flooding. For the Brandon Beerfest, we wanted to support breweries in the areas that have been hardest hit by the recent floods in Scotland and northern England so have some exciting new tastes on offer.”

For those visiting us at the Hope, on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th February, there will be Live Music and a roaming magician, ‘Meet the brewer’ and kitchen takeover from Feastie Boys. Visitors on Sunday 7th can enjoy the Hope’s famously tasty roasts followed by the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz (run nationally across pubs) at 7.30pm raising money for the charity ‘Mind’.
