For two weeks each summer world-class motorcycle racing takes over the entire Isle of Man. Jaw-dropping speeds. Heart-stopping turns. There’s nothing else quite like it on the planet.
The Isle of Man TT Races greet thousands of tourists and motorcycle enthusiasts and, each year, Bushy’s – the legendary local beer brand and brewery – is ready and waiting to show them (and the locals) the time of their lives.
Bushy’s has become much more than a favourite brew amongst the crowds. It has become an institution. The Bushy’s brand and its lovingly-brewed beers are known by everyone – visitors, locals, teams, riders – as the iconic host of the biggest and best festival in town.
In 2018, Bushy’s introduced a whole new level of TT experience to record-breaking crowds with the launch of Bushy’s TT Village. Since then, the festival village has roared with action for 14 days and nights, as thousands of locals and enthused visitors enjoy live music, local food and drink, a vibrant atmosphere and so much more.
Located at the stunningly-situated Villa Marina Gardens on the Douglas’ bustling promenade. Bushy’s TT Village has quickly become the place to go before, after and (for some) during the races.
Bushy’s TT Village is a festival within a festival; a focal point for the thousands, hosting live gigs both day and night, and offering fresh artisan food and drink, branded merchandise, and an array of local and premium beers, ciders and spirits. 2019 saw the introduction of a new hospitality and corporate offering, as well as an exciting new events space overlooking Douglas Bay. The developments keep coming, to much applaud.
Footfall to the event has surpassed all expectation with an impressive ensemble of bikers, riders, Island residents, visiting teams and corporates attending in their thousands, willing and ready to weave two-weeks of thrilling races with the unbridled revelry taking place at Bushy’s TT Village.
An incredible atmosphere and unmissable TT experience are testament to the 100,000+ visitors who, year-on-year confirm Bushy’s TT Village as ‘the’ place to be during TT.
BUSHY’S TT VILLAGE
Bushy’s has been a major feature of the TT for over 20 years, bringing together the crowds to celebrate an incredible global event which resonates with the locals and international visitors equally. Formerly occupying the original Bushy’s TT site opposite the legendary Bushy’s Bar and Brewery on Douglas promenade, we’re proud to say that the Bushy’s Beer Tent grew to become something of a TT institution.
In 2018 Bushy’s relocated to our new home at the Villa Marina Gardens where the event has expanded to great success with an extended footprint, increased facilities, more live acts, a colourful selection of food and drink – and, most importantly, more loyal fans!
It all started when Bushy’s Martin Brunnschweiler and sister Nicky decided to brew the popular Old Bushy’s Tail in the basement of their original Douglas premise Bar Zhivago. Quickly establishing wide popularity and a loyal following, Bushy’s added the nearby Rovers Return to its growing family. A pattern emerged as the Bushy’s brewery and network of pubs serving Bushy’s Island-wide and in the UK grew from strength to strength with the much-loved Bushy’s fox becoming a familiar face for Island residents and visitors alike.
