Great British Beer Festival – 2 August 2022 – Free Trade Tickets

Cask Marque are pleased to announce their sponsorship of the Trade Session of the Great British Beer Festival being held at Olympia.

Paul Nunny the founder of Cask Marque felt that “It is two years since the festival was last held and it is the biggest beer festival in the UK.  It will be great to have the whole of the industry under one roof celebrating cask ale.  Beer festivals are also a great way of attracting new drinkers to the sector, especially the 18-35 year old age group.”

The festival itself runs from 2 to 6 August and Cask Marque during the event will create an ale trail around the stands and offer, through the CaskFinder app, consumer prizes.  The aim is to attract our 10,000 CaskFinder app Ale Trailers to attend and encourage more cask ale drinkers to sign up to the app.  The app is used 60,000 times a month to find Cask Marque pubs.

Festival organiser Catherine Tonry said: “We are so delighted that we’re able to open our doors to the public and trade again after two years of lockdowns and closures, and we’re determined to make this year a fantastic experience. We warmly welcome Cask Marque’s support and would like to invite all cask ale trailers to head down to an unmissable event of fantastic brews from both sides of the Atlantic.”
