STONEHAVEN'S phenomenally popular beer festival is on the move - to a bigger venue and a new date.
After five incredibly successful years in the Town Hall, the event - which attracts 2,000 visitors - is flitting to a custom-built marquee in the town's Baird Park. It will also become a midsummer festival and not held in November, said Robert Lindsay, organiser of the event staged by local beer fans.
Under a new banner, the first Midsummer Beer Happening in Stonehaven will be held from Thursday 18th June to Saturday 20th June 2015, as close to the longest day of the year as possible.
"We are going to make the festival, bigger, better and more exciting than ever, with even more beers, more music and with new ideas and attractions. Apart from anything else, having a beer under canvas in a green and leafy setting on a summer's day is a real treat. It will be nice to see festival-goers turning up in shorts and shades rather than thick winter coats, hats and scarves." said Robert.
Robert said organisers felt lucky to have enjoyed enormous success and popularity in five years at the Town Hall, and can't thank people enough for their support.
"However, we feel the festival has outgrown the Town Hall. We saw people queuing for more than an hour to get in the door because we always reach the hall's capacity very quickly, We really don't want to have people standing on the streets for that length of time on wet, bitterly cold November nights."
Robert said one of the most frequent comments from visitors enjoying the huge range of beers and ales offered has been whether there isn't a bigger venue. He said: "We have listened to what our visitors have said. There isn't anywhere bigger which exists in Stonehaven, so we've decided to create our own for the Midsummer Beer Happening. This will not only help us let more people enjoy the Happening, it will also open up exciting new areas for the festival, such as a strand celebrating good food as much as we celebrate good beer. It will help us develop the music and entertainment which has been key to our success.
"But we are first and foremost a beer festival, and a larger venue will help us bring to Stonehaven a wider range of beers from real ale to craft, homegrown to further afield, including our ever popular Belgian beers. The world of beer has evolved almost beyond recognition since the first Stonehaven Real Ale Festival, with more styles of beers from home and abroad. We want to not just evolve with it, but see our festival lead the way, as it has done since it started."
Robert, owner of Stonehaven's Marine Hotel and Six Degrees North brewery, said the not-for-profit event will continue its aim of supporting the community that supports it by raising money for local charities and good causes. The festival is very much part of Stonehaven and part of the life of this great town. We want to pay something back to everyone who supports us, not least the volunteers who make it happen in the first place.
"So please, mark your diaries now and we'll see you at the Midsummer Beer Happening.”

Imbibition of our Beer at one of our venues won't find you the 'pursuit of happiness', but it'll be damn close!
We need to interact with the customer. Our passion for brewing goes far beyond a bottle sitting on the shelf.
We want to directly share your experience, first hand. For us, this is what it is all about. Beer is culture.
Stunning harbour views, a four star restaurant with rooms, an excellent bar and lounge and also six°north’s brewery tap.
We are local and accessible. Only 20 minutes from Aberdeen the Marine is a popular destination for locals, beer enthusiasts, tourists and the wider community of Aberdeen and Shire. The cuisine is superb reflecting local game and seafood.
We also love Beer. With the Brewery situated only 144 steps from the back door we always have 4 of the beers on draught while maintaining 5 guest ales, some old favourites and over 170 Belgian beers in bottle.
We are also not just about the Beer. We believe that all your tastes should be catered for and so we do not just focus on beer and food. An accomplished wine selection is available with an extensive range of quality whiskies. Our rooms are some of the best in Scotland offering excellent value and facilities with outstanding views. We aim to give our long and short term visitors all the conveniences they require.

In a short time we have become a mecca for craft beer enthusiasts and created a few too.
We want to create an atmosphere to suit our beers. With a stripped back and stylish interior, six°north aberdeen presents an environment for the beers and staff to do the talking. Table service is as standard and with over 350 beers on Tap and Bottle, we encourage a dialogue between staff and other customers alike to promote recommendation.
We don’t just do Beer. Combined with our comprehensive and diverse beer range, we offer a selection of snacks and simple fayre alongside premium spirits, personally selected wines and soft drinks.
We are more than just Beer. With custom made/designed glasses and a private tasting room, we offer tutored tastings, bar reservation sections for special occasions and periodically showcase particular breweries and styles.
We were 1 of the 46 Bars chosen for Cantillon’s Zwanze Day. Cantillon are one of Belgium’s, and the world’s most renowned breweries. Every year they release a specially produced beer which can only be served on September 14th and in specific bars.

Launching January 2016 – our third venue brings six°north favourites, Belgian classics and the UK's finest beers to Edinburgh, accompanied by our ‘Petits Plats de Cuisine a la Bière Belgique’.
Join us at your convivial new local to imbibe with friends…
Edinburgh is our venture into the capital. Split over two levels, it is the bar that keeps giving.
Our biggest draught selection, boasting 40 taps upstairs allowing for an impressive range of beers, but we don’t stop there. An enviable selection of whisky is showcased on the impressive gantry alongside many more of our favourite spirits. Add to that a small selection of cocktails prepared by our resident experts and you are almost set.
Take yourself ‘one°below’ and discover our bottle cellar, full of Belgian gems of old and new. Spend an afternoon there and you will barely scratch the surface. Then there is the food, or ‘Petits Plats de Cuisine a la Bière Belgique’ if you will. A tapas style menu aimed to combine elements of the fantastic flavours of Belgian food with a local twist.
Launching in February 2016 – our fourth venue brings six°north favourites, Belgian classics and the UK's finest beers to Glasgow, accompanied by our ‘Petits Plats de Cuisine a la Bière Belgique’.
Join us at your convivial new local to imbibe with friend…
Glasgow is our journey west. A vibrant city with a burgeoning beer scene, it would be impossible to bypass Scotland’s often hidden gem of a city – and we wouldn’t want to.
Offering a fine selection of beers, over 30 taps will play host to our own delights alongside Scotland’s emerging greats, top brews from across the UK and, of course, a big focus on the brewing capital of the world, Belgium.
Not stopping there though, we will have bottle list upwards of 100 strong as well as an ample selection of spirits so even the most discernible drinker will be spoilt for choice.
Again our ‘Petits Plats de Cuisine a la Bière Belgique’ make an appearance, with the chefs putting their own local twist on the menu.

Wonderfully light and balanced beer with bright citrus notes and a refreshing, grippy and food friendly palate.
A wonderfully light and balanced drop with lemon and lime sherbet hints along with soft malty popcorn aromas. The palate hits with bright citrus notes and a grippy, refreshing, floral finish. Although only a cheeky ‘table beer’ it still show a nice hoppy character which could be great with asparagus, hollandaise and poached eggs.

Typically cloudy and whiter like a good wheat beer should be.
Lustful creamy aromas bounce around with orange citrus, coriander seed, barley sugar and macadamia nut. The palate is balanced, refreshing and carries on where the nose leaves off. A good match with goats cheese and caramelised onions. Also this is Wally’s favourite!
3 of 10
As the name suggests a beer for all occasions! Especially when you’ve got a thirst on!
Clean aromas of rich lime, lemon and walnut move to a super fresh palate of juicy fruit, lime pastille and floral hints. A belter of a beer in a balanced and refreshing style originally made for the farm workers in the summer heat. Saison and a light Thai curry....done!
4 of 10
If you want Hops...we got it! Easily BrewBob’s fave.
Dried apricot, sweet butter scotch, bitter citrus and pistachio aromas. Full-flavoured, hoppy, refreshing and balanced on the palate. The bitterness is well integrated in true Belgian style with a pleasant kick at the end. We’d pair with baked fish, tapenade and pearl barley risotto.

Taking its name from Brendan “Chopper” Dennet (one of holy triumbrant of six°north brewers) this dark, rich coffee coloured stout is a real treat!
With a bountiful nose of chocolate, coffee, treacle/caramel and well integrated maltiness, this is one for the lovers of darker beer. The palate is rich and concentrated without being overly intense, with flavours of sultanas and bourbon biccies! Serve with traditional Belgian Carbonade or Venison & wild berry jus.
6 of 10
Rich and dark in appearance with a bright brown/amber rim. The nose is oozing with treacle, demerara sugar, chocolate and coffee with softer aromas of stewed apple, sweet BBQ sauce and a dark cherry/kirsch edge.
The palate is concentrated without being too heavy with a Kola Kube and sweet spice prickle, added to a comforting dark chocolate/espresso bitterness and a finish of raisin and prune. Great representa- tion of the style with good solid colour, rich aromas and bold flavour. Ideally drank a little warmer. Pair with sticky toffee pudding.

Not to say that when you have this fine 6˚N libation you will be transferred into the undead!!...no no perish the thought!! Shi contains the souls of many hop vines, help them escape to a new life!
A rich nose with wheaty, yeasty and hoppy characters mingling with full-on mango and passion fruit. Added to that comes a kick of honeycomb, banana and a touch of sourness. The palate is sweet, very soft and delicate with an apple and tropical fruit 'bite', superbly balanced bitterness and the heat of ginger spice on the finish. This belter of a Belgian Double IPA simply 'raises' the bar in its style. Great with a Green Thai Curry.
8 of 10
A benchmark intro to the six ̊north range, bread from its bigger brother, HopClassic.
Super fresh hoppy aromas and a touch of madeira cake sweetness mingle with apricot and apples. The palate is mouth-watering and balanced with a floral and very moreish hopped finish. Best to pair with a glass!
9 of 10
Bright and clear, orangey/red appearance with a wonderfully creamy head.
Big aromas of candyfloss, banana, apricot mingle with rounded, rich fruit cake. The palate is bursting with more of the same combined with a special heat and spice. Tripel Tastic!!
10 of 10
A cracking style of beer made with heather honey local to the brewery. Expectation suggests it’ll be sweet and overpowering with bee juice but no!
The honey is there to act as a supporting act to what is a great style of beer. The aromas are a mix of mango and citrus pith along with a touch of malty sweetness. Flavours of honey come through on the mid-palate alongside a slightly toasty element. The finish has a clean, refreshing bitterness for a weighty beer. We’d pair with a venison burger, crispy bacon and a sweet brioche bun!
