The Eden Project’s annual beer festival is set to return on Saturday October 3 (2015), with a wide selection of brews, great food and live music.

The one-day festival, organised in partnership with the renowned St. Austell Brewery, follows hot on the heels of Eden’s Festival of Food season, which ends on September 27.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of beers from all over the UK, as well as a selection of tipples from elsewhere in the world.

Highlights from the beer selection include Black Flag Naughty Pilchard, Hunter’s Crispy Pig, Cheddar Ales Totty Pot, Glastonbury Ales Hedge Monkey and Stonehenge Pigswill.

Live music will be playing throughout the evening, courtesy of Land of the Giants, The Sum Of and the People’s String Foundation Trio.

Land of The Giants are a six-piece from Plymouth known for filling dance floors at their raucous, feel good, highly-addictive shows. In 2013 the band scooped Best Band in the South West Music Awards, a title previously held by Joss Stone and Muse. The band has so far produced two EPs called No Pressure and Land of the Giants.

The Sum Of are a four-piece band from Bude that will be performing at Eden’s beer festival. The rock quartet, who enjoy experimenting with time signatures, format and dynamics, will be playing an acoustic set.

The People’s String Foundation Trio hail from across the South West and play a mixture of artisan flavours with urban and world beats. Last year, they released their second studio album The Lost Dreams of Gilgamesh.

Tim Hardy, from the Eden Project’s Live team, said: “This year’s beer festival boasts a really eclectic range of tasty ales and scrumptious ciders as well as a fantastic line up of bands. There’s sure to be something for everyone.”

The Eden Project beer festival takes place on Saturday October 3, starting at 6pm and ending at 11.30pm.

Tickets for this over-18s event cost £12.50 and include four drinks tokens and a beer festival glass. Further beer tokens, which can be exchanged for 1/3 of a pint, can be purchased on the evening and cost £1.20 each.
