Bristol Craft Beer Festival moves to Bristol Harbourside

Craft Beer fans rejoice… Bristol Craft Beer Festival will return this September for three days of world class beer, great food and live music. After the success of its 2017 edition, the event will move to Bristol harbourside, taking up residency at the heart of the city from 14th – 16th September.

Festival organisers, We Are Beer, plan to build a carnival of craft beer – a food and drink fan’s wonderland – honouring Bristol’s modern independent beer movement and inviting international and national brewing icons to bring the finest line up of brews the city has ever seen. The event will feature a main stage for a stellar line up of DJs and the hunt is on now for the best in local and national street food, to be paired by experts with selected craft ales.

Greg Wells, Bristol Craft Beer Festival founder explains;

“Last year was a big success for us with Bristol’s beer fans embracing the idea of a beer festival for the new generation of beer lover. We’ll be seeing the summer out in style, taking in the epic views of the Avon and celebrating modern independent beer and Bristol’s place right at the heart of it. Alongside the very best Bristolian and regional brewing superstars, we’ll be taking the festival forward with a band of rock star brewers from the rest of the UK, Europe and the US.”

The line up of beers will also be joined by all kinds of artisanal drinks, including ciders, whiskey, wine and gin too for the non-beer lovers. Bristol Craft Beer Festival will once again operate our unique ‘all in’ ticket, meaning that festival goers get the opportunity to explore, experience and discover over 250 beers from the 35 specially selected breweries in attendance.

Early Bird tickets are available now at and cost £35+BF which includes entry to the event for five hours, festival pours of any beer from any brewer, a full music line up, access to the people that make the beer themselves, a free beer tasting glass and a programme.
