Festivals can be fun and alcohol-free too

July 2022 | 7 minutes

Five miles from Pilton, home of the legendary Glastonbury Festival, Wise Fest continues the festival vibe...

The three-day alcohol-free event, brought to you by Wise Bartender, is going to be every bit as ground-breaking as its illustrious neighbour! Find out how to get your free ticket below.

Alcohol-free drinks have come a long way! In 2017, when Wise Bartender was set up, having an alcohol-free event would have been unthinkable due to the reputation, poor quality and lack of choice on the market. But now, in 2022, the demand and market for alcohol-free drinks is ever-growing, with sober and non-sober people alike requesting more choice.

It is no surprise, therefore, that alcohol-free and low-alcohol drinks are becoming more commonplace and availability has even started to increase in restaurants, pubs and bars. The innovation pipeline shows no sign of slowing down, with advances in taste, pack format, and education particularly noticeable.

Wise Fest is the place to explore the vast range of exciting drinks that have exploded onto the market, drawn from over 450 products available through Wise Bartender's online store.

What is Wise Fest?

Instead of the world’s biggest music artists, Wise Fest will present some of the best names and most popular products from the world of alcohol-free drinks.

Wise Fest is a three-day festival held at Wise Bartender’s base in the village of Evercreech. With a family-friendly environment, visitors can discover a range of traditional and innovative alcohol-free drinks all whilst enjoying delicious food and listening to some of the best local bands around. From alcohol-free beers, wines, and ciders, to spirits, cocktails, kombuchas, meads, and sodas, there are so many fantastic drinks to discover and Wise Fest brings them all together in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
