The Great British Beer Festival, which is in its 37th year, is organised and run wholly by volunteers from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and will showcase over 900 real ales, ciders and perries from across the UK plus specially chosen international beers that are rarely seen on these shores.
This year the festival will have its World famous doors opened by “The Beer Master” for the first time ever. The top hat-wearing, moustachioed ringmaster is part of this year’s spectacular circus theme, with live action circus performers including jugglers, clowns and unicyclists entertaining crowds at the Festival’s opening on Tuesday the 12th of August.
