Join us at The Ultimate Beer Festival!
The Great British Beer Festival is one of the only places in the world where you’ll find over 30 bars under one roof!
Imagine taking a trip around all the very best pubs, not only in Britain but across Europe and the United States. That’s what the Great British Beer Festival 2018 is all about – a cornucopia of fantastic brews, as diverse and wonderful as the people that create them.
Of course, beer is still at the heart of the festival, so explore our carefully selected range of real ale, craft beer, cider and perry via the “Beer Finder“, where you will also find our selection of international beers, wine, gin and specialty coffees.
We hope this will assist you by providing a guide of the great flavours and names to expect onsite and to help you plan your visit accordingly. You never know – you might find your new favourite this year!
Every year, we invite breweries to come and serve you their great beers. Is your favourite Brewery Bar going to be at the Great British Beer Festival? Find out here!
Take home something special: we’ll be hosting book signings by some of the most popular authors in beer writing as well as launching brand new books in the official festival shop. Check out who will be at the festival, and when, to ensure you don’t miss your favourites.
Looking for a little more? Why not book in for one of our tutored tasting sessions? We’ll help you navigate the unknown. A bit of a foody?
