Great Beer

Over 50 real ales and craft beers were on offer at this year's festival!

We featured over 50 real ales including 10 breweries new to the festival. The committee selected 24 popular beers from the previous 19 festivals which were available in large barrels (and you drank them all!) We also selected 10 ‘Local Heroes’ from breweries within 10 miles of Charlbury as we knew visitors to our beautiful town would want to sample the local produce.


From further afield there were two German craft beers from Balduin Ales in Hamburg. Brewed by Ian Faulkner, a Charlbury lad living over there and we're confident we won't be the only festival stocking them in the UK this summer.


In keeping with our intention to provide a range of vegan produce in 2017 we sourced Wagtail and Entire Stout beers.


The 2017 Beer List is here!

Over 50 beers from dark ales to vegan beers and everything inbetween.
