Livestock Festival Launches Own Beer

Livestock Festival has joined forces with the Three Shires Brewery in Worcestershire to craft their very own beer.

Festivalgoers can sip an ice cold pint of this exclusive traditional bitter at this year’s festival, taking place from Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July 2016.

Livestock Festival Founder, Ben Leeke said: “A summer festival and the perfect pint go hand in hand. The Three Shires Brewery is just a stones throw from the Livestock Festival fields in nearby Worcestershire and we’re thrilled to be using their local hops for our Livestock Festival Ale. This collaboration was something we’d been concocting since the very early days and it’s wonderful to be launching the Livestock Festival Ale ahead of the festival’s return.”

The Livestock Festival Ale is a 4% roasted chestnut coloured traditional bitter. Its unique brewing temperature and added wheat give the beer its signature floral, earthy notes and strong creamy texture.

Initial tastes of thick creamy caramel are showcased as a result of the added crystal and pale malts. The locally grown British strain of malts used to produce the ale gives it a smooth but bitter after taste. 

Livestock Festival follows in the footsteps of other iconic festivals with their own beer. Most memorable of all, Bestival’s ‘BestivAle’.

As called “the best farm festival” by Roy Stride of Scouting For Girls, Livestock Festival is a vibrant weekend of music, film, camping and comedy. Last year’s inaugural event saw thousands of people descend on Longdon, near Tewkesbury.

Music lovers flocked to see impressive headliners Toploader, Scouting For Girls, The Feeling and The Hoosiers. 2016 headliners are soon to be announced.

Livestock Festival takes place at Manor Farm, Longdon nr Tewkesbury from Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July 2016. Earlybird tickets are on sale now. Adult tickets are priced from £35 and children’s tickets from £1. Family, camping and VIP tickets are also available. For the latest updates and to book tickets, visit
