Our 2015 Principal Sponsor
Charlbury Beer Festival 2015

Saturday 27th June - a day to remember!

Thank you to everyone who visted the 2015 Charlbury Beer Festival!

Our accounts show we raised a stunning £23,754.00 plus an additional £5,300.00 raised by others, making a total of £29,054.00 for good causes raised over the entire event.

Thank all for coming and enjoying such a fantastic day, making it special and drinking us dry.  Also to our sponsors for supporting us again in 2015 and all the Beermaker volunteers who helped us to deliver such a great event.

Thank you again for coming and see you next year!



Thank you to Falk Schieber for his photos of CBF 2013.

Magna Carta - from the source to the mouth...

In celebration of the sealing of the Magna Carta 800 years ago, we sourced beers for the 2015 Charlbury Beer Festival from along the length of the river Thames (including Runnymede). You must have enjoyed them as you pretty much drank us dry!

Watch our 'Beer by Boat' video here.

Our beer list is online now and features an incredible range of ales including; Abbeydale's Belfrey, Black Hole's Cosmic, Blue Monkey's Ape Ale, Fuggle Bunny's Hazy Summer Daze, Darkstar's Festival, Tiny Rebel's Dirty Stop Out, Windsor & Eton's Magna Carta and one of only three casks in existence of Shotover's John Henry Export IPA!

See you in 2016 for some (more) happy supping!

A good cause

The Charlbury Beer Festival exists solely to raise money for good causes.

Charlbury Primary School has been our biggest beneficiary, but we support a wide range of community groups and projects in the Charlbury area and beyond. More recently we have allocated a proportion of our funds each year to a hand-picked good cause helping children in the developing world.

See our Grants page for further details.

We will retain them for a month after which time they will be recycled through a local charity shop. Please contact us to reclaim your lost property HERE.


Great entertainment!

Live music has always been a key part of the Beer Festival’s success and this year did not disappoint! Every band was fabulous and the dancing (until late in the night) was even better!

The Culture Club, continued to deliver on its original promise of bringing a new cultural twist to the event. What an afternoon's entertainment we had - from talks to interactive workshops, the history of ancient maps to the history of beer, something for everyone in a what proved to be a packed out marquee.
