At the heart of Hanover

Hanover Beer Festival

The 29th Annual Hanover Beer Festival will be held on Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October 2016.

As usual we’ll have a wide range of beers, ciders, perries and wines to tempt you with. Tickets will be on sale from local outlets in September.
