WiseFest is Back!

Five miles from Pilton, home of the legendary Glastonbury Festival, the village of Evercreech is preparing to host its own unique event that is every bit as ground-breaking as its illustrious neighbour.

But instead of the world’s biggest music artists, Wise Fest will present some of the best names and most popular products from the world of alcohol-free drinks with an excellent supporting cast.

Wise Fest has been created by Wise Bartender, the UK’s leading retailer of alcohol-free drinks and is a three day festival held at the company’s base in the village. It is designed to provide a family-friendly environment in which visitors can discover a range of traditional and innovative alcohol-free drinks whilst also enjoying delicious food and listening to some of the best local bands around. From alcohol-free beers, wines and ciders to spirits, cocktails, kombuchas, meads, sodas and functional drinks, Wise Fest is the place to explore the vast range of exciting drinks that have exploded onto the market, drawn from over 450 products available through Wise Bartender.

Summer is the perfect time to dive in and discover some new drink options and experiment with some different combinations. Alcohol-free beers were some of the first drinks to shake-off their reputation for debatable taste characteristics and leading specialists Nirvana, Big Drop and Wild Beer provide a great introduction to the range now available. Spirits have been catching up and come a long way with brands like Sea Arch, Anon, Caleño, Myth and Fluère leading a range of drinks that are delicious on their own, paired with a mixer or as a base ingredient for an alcohol-free cocktail. There are so many fantastic drinks to discover and Wise Fest brings them all together in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.    

Wise Fest runs at Wayside Farm, Evercreech, BA4 6QW from Friday 15th July to Sunday 17th July, with music between 7-9pm from covers duo 34 South on Saturday and Eddie Dean on Sunday. An interactive session on Sobriety will be hosted by @Emma_Sobersonic on Saturday 1-2pm, followed by a Saturday AF Beer Club live tasting at 2pm featuring beers from Lucky Saint, Mash Gang, The Wild Beer Co, Lowtide Brewing Co & Big Drop Brewing Co. And if cocktails are more your thing join the live cocktail making session at 3pm on Saturday. Further details and free tickets are available through Eventbrite.
