This coming weekend sees The Fisherman’s Tavern, Broughty Ferry hosting the 17th annual Ron Bonar Beer Festival.
The festival was named after Ron Bonar, who was chairman of Broughty Ferry RNLI who sadly passed away in the lead up to the inaugural beer festival.
This is a pivotal event in the fundraising calendar for the Broughty Ferry RNLI station. Thanks to the previous 16 festivals the Broughty Ferry lifeboat station has benefited to the tune of £135,000, with all of the funds raised going towards the local lifeboats.
In addition to the fine ales usually served at the Fisherman’s there will be a selection of over 20 beers from independent breweries as well as ciders from the local Cairn o’ Mhor winery.
There will also be a barbecue to whet the appetites of those attending. All of this along with live music is sure to make it’s a great weekend.
The festival begins today (Friday 22 July) at 3pm with entry being free that day. Saturday July 23, and Sunday July 24, opening times are 12.30pm. Both days will have an entry fee of £5 (payable at the door) with the beer garden remaining open until 9pm.
