Festival Sponsors

The Oast Beer festival are looking for sponsors for each cask of beer. Your details will appear in the programme and on the website as well as the Facebook page

The festival is a celebration of Kent beers and as such all beers are from breweries based in the county of Kent.

Beer Selection

There will be 40 Kent beers and ciders from local breweries possibly including beer brewed specifically for the festival. As the only beer festival taking place in a former Oast, the kiln where the beers are served would have been used for drying local Kent hops used to produce beers in Kent

About The Festival

The beer festival is a fundraiser for the Oast Community Centre which is a registered charity. The Oast was acquired by Rainham & Wigmore Community Association in the early 1970s and was converted to open as the current community centre in 1978. Originally known as Wakeley's Oast the building was constructed in the 1890s and in use for drying hops until 1960s when it became disused. There are major works required to the building and the funds raised will help towards this essential maintenance

As well as Kent beers and cider there is also a licenced bar available for soft drinks including local apple juice as well as wines.

This is a beer AND music festival so there will also be a selection of different bands and solo artists performing across the 2 days.
