The Successful Gravity Beer Festival is back at Summerhall in 2024!

The craft beer festival launched by Barney’s beer in 2023 has released its first batch of ‘very early birds’ tickets just in time for Christmas.

The festival, which welcomed more than 900 visitors for its first edition, has announced it will be back at Summerhall in Edinburgh on the 27th and 28th of September 2024.

With an entirely new brewery line up, the organisers will be increasing the Festival’s capacity to 1 500 visitors over 3 public and 1 trade sessions.

Andrew Barnett (aka Barney), founder of Barney’s Beer and Gravity Beer Festival said: “We’re really excited to be able to jump straight into organising for Gravity 2024 in September next year. This year was so much fun, and we have some new ideas that we’d like to add to the event to make it even bigger and better!”

All your beers included! 

Gravity beer Festival is an “all inclusive” festival. With their ticket visitors will be given a branded glass, access to the beer halls and the possibility to sample anything on offer.

Visitors will be invited to work their way through the Beer List (responsibly of course) and try some of the best beers in the UK.

They’ll also have the chance to meet the brewers themselves and attend one of Gravity exclusive talks and tastings!

For those on the look-out for stocking fillers, a limited number of tickets have been released at a ‘Very Early Bird’ rate on Gravity website:

Each session includes the access to the festival, a complimentary glass, and samples from all the brewery stalls.

  • Friday 27th of September – 1pm to 5pm – £32.50 (Very Early Bird)/£37.50 (Full Price)

  • Friday 27th of September – 6pm to 10pm – £32.50/£37.50
