CAMRA announces first details of Great British Beer Festival Winter

CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival Winter will take place for the first time in Burton-on-Trent from 16-18 February 2023. 


As the winter counterpart to CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival, visitors will find a fantastic range of not only dark and winter brews but a great selection of light and hoppy ales to sample over the period. It will also host the prestigious Champion Winter Beer of Britain competition, the winners of which will feature at the Great British Beer Festival in London next summer. 


The festival will feature hundreds of cask and craft beers, ciders, perries and gin at Burton Town Hall, where visitors can also enjoy a range of entertainment and food throughout the weekend.  


It marks the return of the festival following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions. The festival was last hosted in Birmingham and moves around the country every three years to give beer lovers across the UK the chance to sample a wide range of fantastic cask conditioned ales and craft beers. 


Nik Antona, CAMRA National Chairman said: “We are absolutely delighted to bring the Great British Beer Festival Winter to Burton-on-Trent, the home of so much brewing and beer history. The return of the festival is a strong signal to the industry that CAMRA is back in business post-pandemic, and fully committed to delivering its huge portfolio of beer festivals – bringing great beer to every corner of the UK.”
