The Great Farsons Beer Festival
Sunshine, music, beer, entertainment, quirky stalls, beer, free entry, street food, beer, free parking, and did I mention beer? I am referring to Malta's very own "Oktoberfest" known as the Great Farsons Beer Festival and my choice, along with thousands others, for an awesome evening.
The Farsons Beer Festival, now in its 33rd year, offers a unique chance to see, (and drink), the full range of Malta's award winning local beers including, Cisk Lager, Cisk Export Premium Lager, Cisk Chill Lemon Flavoured Lager, Cisk Excel Low-Carbohydrate Lager, Cisk XS and classic brews such as Hopleaf Pale Ale and Blue Label Ale.
International brands are also available (it is a beer festival after all), and with over thirteen bars, sixty draught pumps and fourteen different award winning beers to try, the Farsons Beer Festival really is a celebration of the best beers in Malta.
The beer fest presents an opportunity to see some top Maltese bands as well as talented newcomers perform on stage and in a friendly environment. With two stages to choose from and a selection of both local and international acts performing every night, there really is something to suit everybody.
It starts at 8pm at the Ta' Qali Park and runs from the 26th July - 2013 until the 4th August. It really is a safe and great event for family and friends and will definitely remain one of the highlights of my Summer!
P.S – I also found this great app for the event. It’s free to download and has loads of information on it. Check it out!
