#FyneFest20 – Meet The Brewers Part Three

It’s time for part three of our Meet The Brewers blogs introducing the breweries you’ll be enjoying at FyneFest 2020!

We’ve already revealed 15 breweries for this year’s festival in part one and part two of this blog series, and this week we’ve got another eight for you, including a couple of new faces joining us from 5-8 June this year!


So, whose beers will you find on the bar this summer?

First up for this week’s announcement are our friends from, erm, the north, North Brewing Co! Emerging from the legendary North Bar in Leeds, the brewery has been producing brilliant beers with outstanding designs since 2015. John, Christian and the team have won not only a heap of awards for their beers but also the admiration of the craft brewing industry. They’re great.
What to expect?
Keep an eye out for the latest Triple Fruited Gose, a signature sour with heaps of fruit.

Finchampstead’s Elusive Brewing is the baby of Andy Parker, officially the nicest man in UK beer. Drawing inspiration from retro gaming, Elusive join the FyneFest line-up for the first time bringing tasty cask beers with them.
What to expect?
Andy and his beers being lovely.

Magic Rock? At FyneFest? Shocking! Magic Rock are part of the furniture at FyneFest, pouring on keg and cask on the main bar with a mix of expertly crafted year-round beers and exciting one-offs and specials. Huddersfield’s finest are back in the glen – we couldn’t do it without them!
What to expect?
Their usual exceptional standard of cask and keg beers.

New on the FyneFest brewery list for 2020, we’re excited to see what Nottingham’s Neon Raptor bring to the festival bar! Neon Raptor popped up on our radar in 2019 with a string of outstanding hoppy beers and imperial stouts that our team really enjoyed, so we figured FyneFest’ers would too!
What to expect?
Super-flavourful, super-fresh progressive beers.

Burning Sky are one of our favourite breweries in the UK – a team who can turn their hand to ultra-sessionable cask pales as well as they can to elegant mixed fermentation sours, we are delighted to have them back on the Main Bar and Origins Brewing Bar at FyneFest 2020.
What to expect?
Saison De Peche was one of the Fyne Ales team’s favourite beers at FyneFest 2019, so more of that if we can get it!


Tom Norton’s hyper-local mixed fermentation brewing project in Suffolk has been producing beautifully complex beers since 2013, using a house culture developed from cider lees. Their use of barrels and locally grown and foraged ingredients give their beers a real sense of provenance – catch them on the Origins Brewing Bar.
What to expect?
Complex flavours and maybe a cheeky Origins Brewing collab?

Yorkshire’s SALT is headed up by longtime Fyne Ales friend, Colin Stronge, whose beers have quickly made the brewery one of the hottest new prospects in the UK. Beyond their excellent year-round hoppy beers and easy-going sours, their adventurous collabs are definitely worth looking out for.
What to expect?
West Yorkshire’s best.

The final addition to FyneFest 2020 for this blog is Fierce Beer, a force of nature in Scottish brewing producing ultra-modern, distinctive beers. Founded by a dynamic Dave and Dave duo, Fierce’s ambition has driven them to become one of Scotland’s most exciting breweries, and with the addition of their new Fierce By Nature mixed fermentation project, things are only going to get more exciting in 2020.
What to expect?
Tastiness and the tallest brewer at the festival.


Another eight breweries added to the line-up for FyneFest, bringing our total to 23 for 2020!

Come back next Friday when we’ll reveal another batch of breweries whose beer you can enjoy at FyneFest 2020 and stay tuned to social media tomorrow for more exciting FyneFest news!
