Great British Beer Festival @ Olympia Grand

Great British Beer Festival @ Olympia Grand

Britain’s biggest beer festival returns to Olympia Grand.

You had better arrive thirsty; with over 900 real ales, ciders, perries and international beers to try, the Great British Beer Festival has something for everyone and to suit every taste.

Many of Britain’s most recognisable breweries will run their own bars at the event, including Charles Wells, Fuller’s, St Austell and Wadworth. You’ll also have the chance to sample foreign beers with the very best from Belgium, Germany, Italy and beyond. Pub snacks and traditional games will break up the guzzling as you can snack on treats from the festival stalls including Crusty Pie Company, Pipers Crisps and Truckle Cheese.

If you’re looking for a little enlightenment, the tutored tastings will allow you to not only sample a selection of beers but also gain an insight into the diverse world of real ale and cider.

Organised by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) – Campaigning for real ale, pubs & drinkers’ rights since 1971
