Wild Brew! The Making of the Beltane Brew. 

  1. 10am Gathering the Herbs for the Beltane Brew

Lower Barton Farm, Nether Cerne DT2 7AJ

The Beltane Beer is a vibrantly energising brew of traditional spring tonic herbs. In the morning we will forage for the herbs with medical herbalist Eleanor Gallia, gathering our cleansing and invigorating ingredients from the ancient chalk downland hill, Smacam Down. Join us on this herb walk and learn about the historic, medicinal and celebratory properties of our glorious native plants and the trees that play such a prominent role in the Celtic quarter days. The wild spring herbs we harvest will be brewed by Vic in the afternoon workshop at Cerne Abbas brewery.  Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing and bring secateurs, gloves and a basket. There is livestock and wildlife on the hill so please do not bring dogs, thank you.

Morning incl coffee/tea and cake £17.   All day (with brewing) £22

Success! You're on the list.
