Organised annually by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), the Great British Beer Festival has been running for over 40 years.
With around a thousand different drinks available, organisers call it the “Biggest pub in the world”.
The festival specialises in Beer, Cider and Perry, and of the 1000 drinks, more than half are beers from British brewers. New to 2019 is a craft gin bar—so you can finally bring along that friend who doesn’t do real ales.
The festival is staffed by 1,000 volunteers, so be nice!
Grab your tickets ahead of time—you’ll skip the queues and save a couple of quid while doing it.
