CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival 16 – 19 November 2023

The CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival returns to City Hall, College Green, Bristol from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th November 2023. There will be a carefully chosen selection of around 80 different real ales on sale over the course of the festival as well as a range of around 30 ciders and perries.

Organised by volunteer members of CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) this is the premier real ale, cider and perry focused event in the Bristol area.

Bristol & District CAMRA Branch Chairman Richard Brooks said:

“Obviously the range of beer is important and we can promise an excellent range of beer styles to try in cask ale form, plus of course plenty of cider and perry. But just as important is the friendly and sociable atmosphere. After last year’s festival we ran a customer survey and the overwhelming response was that people really enjoyed interacting with our volunteer staff. When you’re not sure which beer to try next, it’s great to be able to have a chat with a fellow enthusiast”.

“One bit of negative feedback we did receive about the 2022 festival was that the venue felt a bit too crowded at the peak of some sessions, so we have reduced the overall number of tickets on sale for the 2023 sessions. Customers also missed not having a Friday lunchtime session and I’m pleased to advise that we have been able to add one for this festival, although all the Friday lunchtime tickets seem to have sold out very quickly. There are still tickets left for all the other sessions, including the relaxed Sunday afternoon session which was highly rated by those that attended last year.”

No where else in the Bristol area will you find such a wide range of real ales on sale and of course a cracking range of traditional cider and perry as well as hot food at all sessions.

It’s the perfect opportunity to sample the many different styles and strengths of craft real ale currently available.

The festival always has a fun and friendly atmosphere and key to the success of the event is that it is organised and run by unpaid CAMRA volunteers who take part because they are beer enthusiasts that want the event to be a great success for everyone that attends.
