Ringwood Brewery Raising the Bar at the 2018 Armada

The chance to sample a few quality beers with your friends whilst catching a some great bands and relaxing in the sun is a highlight of most festivals – and the Armada is no exception. Whether you have just had a great session on the water with your kite buddies and want to celebrate together or if you’ve come to the festival with your family and just fancy enjoying a nice summer pint – this year we have really got you covered.


We have teamed up with local Hampshire brewery Ringwood so we can bring you a far greater range of tasty ales, crisp lagers and craft beers at this years festival. Jodie Ringer, from Ringwood Brewery said:

‘Ringwood Brewery are very excited to be sponsoring the 2018 Kitesurfing Armada, we love to support events in our local heartland and the Armada is a natural fit for our ethos “visit the winding downs”. We’re all about making the most of your leisure time so it’s fantastic to be working with such a fun event that celebrates an increasingly popular sport! We’ll be doing our best to make sure everyone at the festival gets the chance to sample our ales, you’ll find all of our ales at the bar on site or pop over to our merchandise stand, take a picture with our giant deckchair and have a chat!’

As we are talking beer we should also mention we have also committed to no single use plastic on site at the Armada going forward – so all drinks will be served in Armada and Ringwood branded reusable pint cups, that you get to keep as a souvenir to take home!

Alongside the Ringwood Bar and delivering the finest festival cocktails, the BugBar Team will be back again this year with their super-cool converted VW van / cocktail bar. It all adds to the fun, and we are sure the bars at the Armada and the increased choice available will be a really positive addition to this years Festival.
