The Beer Festival was originally set up as a beer and food festival and the tradition of having excellent things to eat throughout the day continues.
Proceeds of food sales go towards good causes and next year's festival.
Burgers and Sausages
Locally sourced beef and sausages (Meakins Butchers in Leek) served on freshly baked buns (Ashbourne Bakery) with delicious fried onions and condiments.
The now legendary vegetable chilli served with fresh bread and butter.
We never seem to have enough of these amazing vegetable samosas made by hand in Normanton, Derby.
Produced and donated by villagers and locals, there's a wide array of cup cakes, sliced cakes, brownies, etc.
Warslow Beer Festival Fell Race 2017
Last year saw Warslow Beer Festival's first fell race.
This year there will be a small marquee in the start field – so more room to shelter from the weather than 2016 – hopefully as a sun shade this time!
As of 14th May there are 36 online entries, and plenty of time to go…..but please consider entering before the last 2 weeks to avoid disappointment as there is a limit, and the inaugural race last year was very popular.
Remember this is a category A race – it does have steep climbs and descents. If you are thinking of entering and are nervous of heights, we suggest a recce. This will hopefully reassure you that the route is basically safe, with very few possible craggy drop offs. These can easily be avoided by using grassy lines which are runnable.

PLEASE NOTE: No entries will be accepted on the day - you have to pre-register at the fabian4 website above.
For more details of this year's race, please email organiser Rick Houghton: firstname.lastname@example.org
A popular attraction every year in the field opposite Warslow Village Hall.
Get up close and personal to an array of machinery from classic cars to tractors and steam engines.
If you have a vintage or classic vehicle, no matter how pristine or tatty, please bring it along - the more the merrier!
Free camping is available for Beer Festival guests on SATURDAY NIGHT ONLY.
The campsite is opposite the Village Hall and will be well sign-posted.
There are no facilities on the field but the public toilets in the Village Hall are open all night.
Please be careful when crossing the road at night, especially with children - it is a 30mph zone but no-one seems to stick to the limit...
Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to camp on Friday or over the whole weekend with a caravan or campervan, please contact Hulme End Campsite which is only about a mile away.
