St. Modwen sponsors St. Anthony's Church Beer Festival for tenth year running

St. Modwen is to be the main sponsor of the popular St Anthony’s Church Beer festival, ‘Ales from the Crypt’.


Organised by parish priest and real ale aficionado Father Graeme Dunne, the event is in its tenth year.


It will also be Father Graeme’s last as he bids farewell to the parish later this year to take up a post at St Gregory’s, Chorley.


The event, hosted within the parish Crypt from October 13 – 16, will feature 30 beers and at least five hand-pumped ciders, plus a selection of pub grub.


Father Graeme Dunne said: “I’m thrilled to be hosting this brilliant event for the tenth year running. It really is a lovely occasion and a fitting one to help celebrate my time with St Anthony’s over the past 16 years.


“I would like to thank St. Modwen for its support to the parish and the event over the years and I wish them all the best with the development of Project Jennifer. I’ll certainly be back to visit on completion which I understand happens in the spring.”


Paul Batho, projects director at St. Modwen, said: “The St Anthony’s beer festival is an event that we have been very happy to sponsor for the past ten years. Father Graeme has been a great support and advocate of Project Jennifer and we look forward to celebrating his achievements at the parish at the festival in October.


“We have received lots of support from the local community as the development of Project Jennifer progresses for which we are really appreciative and we look forward to delivering this important asset for this area of Liverpool.”


Father Gordon Abbs will take over as parish priest of St Anthony’s later this year.
