Hobbiton Beer Festival

Explore the magic of Middle-earth with a special five hour Beer Festival at Hobbiton Movie Set on Saturday 3rd November 2018.

With the moon hanging low over the Shire™ you will enjoy a dusk tour of the Movie Set before arriving at the Green Dragon Inn with ample time to relax in front of the open fires. The Green Dragon Inn was the meeting place for all residents of Hobbiton, who would gather in the warm surroundings of the bar to chatter about the day’s events. Waiting for you will be a specially made Hobbiton beer stein for you to take home.

Throughout the evening you can use this to indulge in a few beverages from our Hobbit Southfarthing range, which encompasses two traditional ales, an apple cider and non-alcoholic ginger beer, all handcrafted and exclusive to Hobbiton Movie Set.

For this beer fest celebration we will also have 3 special ales being poured exclusively for this event and for those not so fond of ale, our Middle-earth wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

With your stein in hand, hearty Hobbit sized canapes will be served while you explore the masterfully re-created Inn. After approximately 45 minutes you will be escorted up to the Party Marquee which is our fully themed, spacious location where the painted canvas exterior, vibrant bunting and colourful lanterns allows you to be immersed in the festive magic of the movies.

You will be seated at long banquet tables with a range of hearty German inspired and traditional Hobbit fare sprawling in front of you. Hobbits will ensure your food and steins are continuously topped up throughout the evening because as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged. To add to the festivities we will have an interactive oompah band playing throughout the evening.

At the conclusion of the evening you will depart directly behind the Party Marquee where your coach will be waiting.

Tickets are limited so get in early and enjoy a one of a kind beer fest in the Shire!
