Extra guest ales selected for Goose Stock 2018
Due to the popularity of our guest ales at our previous two beer and music festivals, we are increasing the number of beers you can sample at Goose Stock 2018 by over 50%.
So for this year’s Goose Stock 2018 on Sunday 26th August, you can sample at least 10 different beers instead of the usual 6.
Below are the beers we’ve selected so far:
Lancer is a gold beer brewed by the award-winning Cotswold craft beer family. Goffs Brewery say Lancer is a “delicious golden ale, packed with a plentiful quantity of Cascade hops to give a light, citrusy aroma and fresh taste, and an aftertaste full of tropical fruits.”
Great Heck Brewery
The Great Heck Brewery in Yorkshire brews both traditional and modern beers. They describe Epiphany as a “Pale golden, refreshing, seriously hopped APA, packed with loads of fruity, spicy, citrus aromas and flavours.”
Fortitude 4.2% & Montgomery 4.0%
Wantsum Brewery based in Kent brew a variety of different styles of beer, which range from Pale Ales, IPAs and Golden Ales to Mild, Porters and Stouts, as well as some one-off special brews throughout the year. We’ve selected two of their beers for you to sample.

Named after the SS Richard Montgomery which sank off Sheerness during WW2 whilst full of explosives – the Coastguards monitor the wreck even now!

Fortitude – 4.2% ABV – The name of the plan to deceive Hitler that the allies were going to invade Pas de Calais instead of Normandy. Wantsum’s Flagship bitter first brewed in 2009.
