Great Beer

Don't miss out on over 50 real ales and craft beers.

There will be 50 real ales for you to enjoy including 10 breweries new to the festival. The committee has selected 24 popular beers from the previous 19 festivals which are available in large barrels (as we know you'll want to drink lots of them!) We’ve also selected 10 ‘Local Heroes’ from breweries within 10 miles of Charlbury as we know visitors to our beautiful town will want to sample local produce. 2 of these are new breweries so we're all keen to check them out for the first time. 


From further afield there are 2 German craft beers from Balduin Ales in Hamburg. They are brewed by Ian Faulkner, a Charlbury lad living over there and we're confident this will 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 have sourced Wagtail and Entire Stout beers. They are unfiltered so WILL BE CLOUDY!


The 2017 Beer List is here!

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