After the huge success of the first ever Corfu Beer Festival this October, Corfu meets Bavaria, the dates of the next Corfu Beer and Gastronomy Festival have been announced last night after a small meeting of it's contributors.

Next year's theme will be CORFU MEETS UK!!  From Wednesday 8th until Sunday 12th October 2014.
 It will offer again the opportunity for two different cultures to meet and travel in each other's history. Visitors will get to know the culture, hospitality and gastronomy of Corfu through the exhibition of local products, through presentations of local recipes by local cooks and through educational seminars. This way our visitors will become ambassadors of the real Corfu!!!   
Some British Brewers will be invited in order to produce  their beers directly in our Corfu Microbrewery that will be offered during the festival among the local beers and other products.

Didn't see it. However, great minds think alike. xxx
Did you go this year? We went twice, on the Wednesday and Sunday. Was a bit too busy on the Sunday for us but was an excellent evening on the Wednesday.

Ellie, it took this page so long to load it's given me an idea. Perhaps I clicked out of forum too soon after I made my original post not giving it enough time to load.

Yes we were there, in fact we went straight from the airport arriving at the festival at midnight...so keen we were!

It's good to hear that there will be a different theme next year, this will keep the festival interesting...my German sausage souvlakis were interesting...I look forward to trying the haggis version ;-)

Hmm, now where will they find the haggis in Corfu? We will have to send the hunters out with their shotguns to bag a few, and as for a decent English banger, still searching. Lol

Also taking part is the Kelburn Brewing Company from Scotland, a family run business where over 12 years their high standard of beer has won them more than 50 industry awards gaining a high reputable position in the trade.

We will also have the chance to taste the beers from The Galway Bay Brewery of Ireland who believe in full-on flavours in their beers, producing small batches of beers using carefully selected hops to make a tasty brew with a punch!

Everards Brewery from England, an independent family brewery owning over 170 pubs in the UK where they stock their award-winning ales, will also showcase their beers.
