The Great British Beer Festival is one of the biggest, most exciting and well-known events in the beer and cider world. Organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) it brings hundreds of real ales, international beers and real ciders and perries under the iconic Olympia roof.
As well as the huge range of drinks on offer, you can enjoy a varied selection of street food and snacks. Entertainment is also included as part of the ticket price with live music in the afternoons and evenings. Why not test your skill on a variety of traditional pub games, and browse the festival shops for pub books, brewery memorabilia and CAMRA merchandise.
You’ll get the chance to find out more about CAMRA’s vital campaigning to protect pubs and support British real ale, cider and perry producers. CAMRA book authors will be on site to sign books and talk about their work.
Beer experts will be running beer tastings throughout the week to help you learn more about the craft which goes into making Britain’s best beers, and of course one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world – the CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain – will be judged and announced at the start of the Great British Beer Festival. Make sure you get to sample a taste of the beer given the crown in 2019!
We have invited some amazing breweries to join us with Brewery Bars, to serve you their great beers direct. We will also be offering wine, gin and coffee for those looking for a little break from all things beer.
