Godalming Beer Festival

Meet the team

Between us we have over 30 years of experience running pubs, bars and events – some of which are Godalming institutions! Event bars was the natural next step; and then came the Beer Festival!

The Star is Godalming’s favourite pub, and Andy and Emma have been landlords for many recent years. If you want a proper beer (or cider, or gin!) in Godalming, the Star is the place to go.

Sam started Staycation Live festival in 2010 after years of putting on other events in the local area, and it’s become a landmark event in the Godalming calendar. The aim was to bring bands to Godalming that people would likely never have heard before, and that’s what they did. Now spread over three days in August, it’s not to be missed!

Together, we’re keen to build upon our individual successes and create new and exciting events in Surrey and beyond.

SAM Allen

Sam DJs around Godalming, when given the chance, and enjoys making all manner of electronic music.

He likes a good bourbon and a particularly hoppy pale ale.

He also plays cricket for the team at the Star.

Andy Mounsey

Andy brews his own beer in the microbrewery he built at the back of their pub, The Star, on Church Street in Godalming.

He’s a massive Rugby fan and a Harlequins season ticket holder, and is co-captain of the Star’s cricket team.

Emma Mounsey

Emma has spent over 20 years in the pub trade, the last 10 in The Star with Andy.

She is our Gin enthusiast and has a soft spot for 80s pop.
