CarFest - a celebration of incredible cars, live music, fantastic food, drink and Badger beer!
It was a road trip summer for the Badger team with our 1980’s Bedford military truck at CarFest North and South festivals - inviting the good people of CarFest to have a few tasters of Badger beers on us! We took four beers with us; Golden Champion (with subtle hints of elderflower), everyone’s old favourite Fursty Ferret, the new hoppy and refreshing Leaping Legend and Blandford Flyer, with a touch of ginger – not unlike event founder Chris Evans!
First stop, CarFest North at Oulton Park Circuit in Cheshire at the end of July. As always the British summertime can be somewhat unpredictable; so armed with wellies, sunscreen, umbrellas and hats we were well prepared for every eventuality. Thankfully, the weather was glorious across the weekend, so team members from the brewery topped up their tans whilst handing out beer tasters!
As soon as CarFest North was over it was full steam ahead for CarFest South. This time a little closer to home at Jody Scheckter’s Laverstoke Park Farm near Basingstoke. Despite the grey skies and rain spirits were not dampened and Badger beer tasters proved equally popular with thirsty festival goers in the South!
And so after our summer on the road, we’ve tucked away the Badger truck for the Autumn, hung up our t-shirts and put away the suncream, but don’t worry we have a few more adventures planned for next year; so stay tuned over the next couple of months to see where Badger will be in 2016!
