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.

To make this event possible we rely on our corporate sponsors. In return they receive tickets and publicity. If you'd like to become a sponsor please contact us.

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 Emmaus is the Festival's nominated charity. For more details please click here.
