The venue for CAMRA’s ‘Great British Beer Festival – Winter’ changes every three years. After Norwich for the last three years, it is now Birmingham’s turn. The best beer from local breweries, food and music will all come together at the New Bingley Hall in Birmingham from Tuesday 4 to Saturday 8 February 2020. Visitors can expect a warm winter celebration with an impressive range of real ales of every style (not just winter beers), international beers and ciders and perries, plus a range of gins and non-alcoholic options. The judging for CAMRA’s Champion Winter Beer of Britain competition will take place during the festival and the winning beers will be available for tasting.
As regards tickets, you have the choice of paying for admission only or, for a flying start, a £20 bundle which includes entry, £10 worth of beer tokens and a festival glass (otherwise £3.00). CAMRA members can claim a £2 discount on all entrance tickets by using the members’ discount code: WINTERFEST.
There is an exclusive session for trade and CAMRA members on the Tuesday from 1pm to 5pm with the festival then opening to the public. Wednesday to Friday, the festival is open from 11am to 10.30pm and on Saturday from 11am to 7pm.
