Profits from the event will be donated to The Huntington’s Disease Association

Independent family brewer, Hall & Woodhouse (H&W), is set to welcome guests to the Dorset Beer Festival on June 21 and 22. The annual event is a celebration of its heritage and history in the beer industry and invites people to taste expertly crafted drinks, both new and old.

Taking place at H&W’s Brewery in Blandford, the event is set to include live music, freshly prepared food, and more barrels of classic beers, ales, and ciders than ever before. To accommodate an extended lineup of music and entertainment, and in response to positive feedback to last year’s event, H&W has added an extra day to the schedule.

Heidi McLaughlin, Visitor & Experience Manager at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “The Dorset Beer Festival has been running for over 12 years now and has evolved from a small gathering to a staple event in our calendar at Hall & Woodhouse. With a variety of live music and stalls to enjoy, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone. We’re excited to see the local community and those from across the county come together and enjoy some amazing beers!”

Festival-goers will have the chance to taste over 50 different beers from Badger Beers and other favoured brewers. The festival, which is set against the backdrop of the state-of-the-art Badger Brewery, showcases the brand’s innovative beers and latest Outland craft beer, as well as an exclusive 8% beer created by H&W’s Innovation Manager, Jon Mead.

A creche facility with childcare professionals is also being introduced to the festival to allow the whole family to enjoy the event.

All profits from the festival will be donated to The Huntington’s Disease Association which helps to provide care, guidance, support, and education for those living with the debilitating disease. The decision to raise money for this charity was inspired by a member of the H&W team, Alice, whose mother was diagnosed with the condition.

Alice Jewer, Distribution Coordinator at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “I’m deeply touched by H&W’s decision to donate the profits from this year’s Dorset Beer Festival to The Huntington’s Disease Association.

“My mother’s diagnosis came as a massive shock, but the charity was there for us every step of the way. In a time which can be extremely confusing and isolating, The Huntington’s Disease Association team were welcoming and really understand what individuals and families are going through. The donation from this event will help things like research and provide so many families like mine with essential care and support, and a sense of community which makes a huge difference to their lives.”

Heidi added: “Everyone at H&W was moved by Alice’s story and inspired by her family’s determination to create a positive outlook around the condition. The Huntington’s Disease Association is a brilliant charity which provides a valued member of the team with constant support, and we’re proud to give something back.”
