Best beer festivals in the UK

Beer is a very British thing. It’s something that we like to celebrate and enjoy at beer festivals. Modern beer festivals aren’t all about locally brewed ales as micro-brewed keg beers are also making a major contribution. We’ve taken a look at the best of them so you’ll know where to head when you’d like to meet like-minded folk.

Birmingham’s so central that most of the nation can visit the Birmingham Beer Bash. This is one of the new breed of beer festivals that feature both keg and cask ales, as well as bottled beers. The intimate setting means that you don’t have to walk far to get your next beer.

The Great British Beer Festival is the next one we’d recommend you visiting. This one takes place in Kensington, London so it might be expensive or difficult for those outside of the capital to visit. It would be a shame to miss this one though as you’re guaranteed a selection of cask ales from the USA.

Those who live in Hampshire and surrounding counties should head along to the Reading Beer and Cider Festival in King's Meadow. This one’s a longstanding event as it was first run in 1996. Tombolas, Morris Dancing and loads of other unusual stuff sets this one apart from the others on our list.

Indy Man Beer Con in Manchester is another we recommend highly. All those abbreviated words mean: “Independent Manchester Beer Convention” which makes it sound way more formal than it really is.

The Burton CAMRA Beer and Cider Festival in Burton-on-Trent offers some of the nation’s best kept cask ales. This one’s a favourite for people of all walks of life including Andrew Griffiths, MP for Burton & Uttoxeter, whose passion for ales had led him to become the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group.
