The Great British Beer Festival wouldn’t work without the support from some big friends. Every year we are proud to bring together some amazing sponsors to bring you a unique festival experience.

Wetherspoon is once again delighted to continue its long-standing collaboration with the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) on its Great British Beer Festival 2018 – the annual beer-filled celebration of real ale. The event showcases everything great about beer – a passion which we share at Wetherspoon and throughout our pubs across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Wetherspoon has championed real ale for almost 40 years. We are proud to have 225 entries in the 2018 CAMRA Good Beer Guide, as well as Cask Marque accreditation in all of our pubs – testament to our staff’s wholehearted commitment to serving excellent-quality beer. Date for your diary – our next festival (10–21 October 2018, inclusive) will feature another collection of ales, including UK and international brewers, as well as a range of ciders.

Greene King is proud to be this year’s headline sponsor for the Great British Beer Festival. GBBF is a fantastic celebration of the variety and complexity of British beer. Brewing in Bury St Edmunds, the home of Greene King, dates back 1000 years to the Doomsday book and in 2019 our two historic breweries, Westgate in Bury St Edmunds and Belhaven in Dunbar will be celebrating a combined brewing heritage of 520 years. Within of range, from pale ales to craft beers and from bitters to porters one thing is for sure, our passion for brewing top quality, delicious beer is as strong today as all those years ago.
