Round-up of the beer festivals in Perthshire

Local breweries represented include Inveralmond, Strathbraan and Highland Brewing Company

Perth Beer Festival is the largest in the region. It’s organised in June by Perth Rugby Team, so as well as a long beer list there’s a sevens tournament. Beers are mostly from Scotland, with a few from further south.

In August, it’s the Bankfoot Inn Summer Beer Festival, first held in 2013 when it featured UK beers, including local breweries Inveralmond and Strathbraan.

The Heart of Scotland Beer Festival happens at Perth Racecourse in mid-May and has a more continental spin, with the Bavarian Package including a stein, race programme and sausage feast.

Crieff Beer Festival has been held every June since 2009. It’s all for charity, and the list of local and Scottish brews includes Kelburn, Stewart Brewing and the Highland Brewing Co.
