The best beer and beer festivals to book in 2021 Wine News

Partial for a pint? Whether it’s something hoppy, fruity, rich, or sour, there will be something for everyone at one of the country’s many craft beer festivals, which – if the Covid restrictions allow – will return to theaters inside and outside the UK this summer.

From one-day events to weekend camps and featuring beers from around the world, the craft beer festival calendar is also eclectic, quirky (see below for the Great Central Railway Beer Festival and the steam room) and exciting than ever.

Fantastic food, live music, and plenty of alternative drinks are also now standard, providing everything you need for a perfect day (assuming the weather is right, of course).

Here are 11 to whet your appetite – grab your journal and pencil in one or two for a quality Oktoberfest weekend.

Bristol Craft Beer Festival

June 11-13, Harborside, Bristol

Hosted by craft beer festival company We Are Beer (which also hosts beer festivals in London, Edinburgh and Manchester, as well as Beer Central in Birmingham), more than 30 world-class breweries will attend this three-day event at Harborside, Bristol, as well as a stellar array of alternative food and drink stalls for non-beer drinkers. Tickets include all the beer you drink throughout the day (or the weekend, if you choose to attend daily).

Tickets from £ 49.50;

Bigfoot Festival

June 18-21, Ragley Hall, Warwickshire

New this year, the Bigfoot Festival bills itself as the very first craft beer music festival, similarly interested in what it pours and what it plays. Expect a huge range of artists (Primal Scream is headlining) and craft beers from across the country, plus a delicious array of chefs – including Genevieve Taylor, Ramael Scully and the team at 10 Greek Street. Unlike most beer festivals, camping is also an option, so you can recreate the Glastonbury atmosphere, but with a significantly tastier drink.

Tickets from £ 120 for weekend camping, with options for pre-pitched tents and luxury tipis;

Twyford Beer Festival

June 25, Stanlake Meadow, Twyford

Returning for its 11th year, this independent beer festival promises perfect pours from local breweries, along with ciders, spirits and sparkling to boot. The one-day festival raises money each year for the Orchid Cancer Men’s Charity, with music acts and volunteer staff for the day. Keep an eye out for the full list of breweries in attendance, which should be announced shortly.

Tickets from £ 10 including two drink vouchers;

Central Beer Festival
