Record Numbers Attend The CPFC Beer Festival

19 May 2014

The fourth annual CPFC Beer Festival was held at Selhurst Park on Saturday with around 180 ales & ciders available from breweries around the UK, and this year we also had on offer some superb bottled beers from Belgium, Germany and the United States.

The event, kindly sponsored by Cornwall's Sharps brewery and supported by the London Brewers Alliance, was officially opened by Palace fan, actor and craft brewer Neil Morrissey alongside Stephen Browett and Player Of The Year, Julian Speroni. 

All three floors of the stand were packed with attendees enjoying the premium beers and ciders and live music, provided by local bands showcasing their talent.  

The giant screen at Selhurst Park and TVs around the concourse areas broadcast the football live as it took place around the country. 

Many supporters donated money to the club's Study Centre and Foundation in return for their picture with Julian Speroni who attended for a couple of hours during the afternoon. 

The weekend rise in temperature meant that fans were able to relax with a pint on the green between the Holmesdale and Arthur Wait stands while enjoying a hog roast or one of the other food options available on the day.  

Head of catering at Crystal Palace Football Club, Nino Raisys, said: “The day proved a real end of season celebration and we were delighted to add to the number of beers and ciders that we have previously had available. We continue to build on events held in the past three years and came away from this one delighted with the feedback we have received from attendees.  

“I’d like to thank our sponsors Cornwall's Sharps brewery and the support of both the Cronx Brewery and the London Brewers Alliance, as well as all of the acts who performed here on the day, and the staff who made the event run so smoothly.”
