Ale on a G String

Jun 18, 2018 by Music Fest HQ in  News

KNUTSFORD Music Festival will be keeping fans refreshed this year with an official beer called Ale on a G String.

Organisers from Knutsford Town Council launched a competition for festival goers to name the zesty summer ale with a biscuity malt base which is being made exclusively for the event by Tatton Brewery.

After receiving 53 entries, the festival committee picked Ale on a G String, Aley McAleface and Knutfest as their top three before choosing a winner.

Rick Hough came up with the chosen name, inspired by Bach’s Air on the G String.

Sarah Morgan, Deputy Town Clerk at Knutsford Town Council, said: “We’re really glad so many people got into the spirit of the competition and had a good sense of humour with their entries.

“We know there are a lot of beer fans in Knutsford with our festival supporter Tatton Brewery right on our doorstep and it was a close-run thing between the top three names.

“We know that our festival headliner Miles Hunt, of the Wonder Stuff, also likes a beer or two so hopefully we’ll be getting his verdict on Ale on a G String very soon.

“The beer will be widely available at festival venues and pubs throughout the festival weekend.”

Winner Rick will be among the first to try Ale on a G String as he won 18 pints of the beer fresh from the brewery as his prize.

Knutsford Music Festival is a multi-venue event held in the town centre from June 22 to 24.
