Bitter & Twisted is a celebration of music, food and beer

In 2016 Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival celebrated 10 twisted years. In 2017, the festival will bring you the an even bigger line up of boutique beer, internationally recognised music, food from across the globe, home brew masterclasses and a few twisted surprises.


With over 80 craft beers on offer, you’re guaranteed to find a new favourite brew. Ales, IPA’s, porters, stouts and specialty beers, there’s a drop to suit every taste.


We’re working on our greatest line up to date for 2017. We’ve always delivered the best tunes to wash your beer down with and 2017 will be no exception.


Food, glorious food! With the best prison food around from German sausages to a Mexican fiesta and everything in between, you won’t go home hungry.


Tickets for Bitter & Twisted will be on sale 4 August 2017. Subscribe to our newsletter to be first to hear and stay up to date with what we’re doing.
