Organised at Ta’ Qali Park for the last number of years, the festival has grown in size, attendance, number of performances, and variety of beers offered. However, one thing remains the same: entrance is always free.
The festival attracts both Maltese and tourists who flock to Ta’ Qali Park to support local musicians and artists while appreciating a variety of local beer brands, from the award-winning Cisk range of beers: Cisk Lager, Cisk Export, Cisk Excel, Cisk Chill and Cisk XS, to the classic beers, Hopleaf Pale Ale and Blue Label Ale – both brewed with passion since 1928. International beer brands such as Carlsberg, Budweiser, Guinness, Kilkenny, John Smith’s Extra Smooth, Beck’s and Corona Extra are also available at the festival, as well as cider brands Strongbow and Bulmer’s Original Cider.
A food court offers a mix of dishes from all over the world to complement the selection of beers.
Whilst beer takes the centre stage at The Farsons Beer Festival, this hugely popular event is also an important showcase for top Maltese talent. A selection of popular and talented local artists and bands perform on two stages every night, and in fact, the festival is known to be a starting platform for the many up-and-coming artists who are given the opportunity to perform to a large and appreciative audience.
