To find out more about Real Ale and Cider contact your local CAMRA branch.

This festival is organised wholly by volunteers of the Southern Hampshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Once again Winchester Guildhall will be filled with over a hundred different real ales, ciders, perries and foreign bottled beers.

We'd like to thank our key sponsors: Flack Manor Brewery (glasses sponsor) and Flower Pots Inn & Brewery (sponsor of volunteers' polo shirts).

Winchester Guildhall remains our venue partner. It combines old and new to create a beautiful and modern venue within the historic Victorian exterior.

We're delighted to be continuing Beer Tastings following their success last year. The Beer Tasting will be introduced by writer and beer expert Adrian Tierney-Jones. See the Session Details page for more details.

This year we're very pleased that Trinity Winchester is the Festival's nominated charity. For more details please click here.

Our About Us page gives you details about the CAMRA volunteers running the festival. Also here are details of our Membership Stand and how you'll be able to order this year's festival polo shirt.

We hope that our pages are helpful and are up to date with festival information. If not please drop us an email to info@winchesterbeerfestival.org.uk – we look forward to seeing you at the Guildhall in March.
