Great Beer - Great Food - Great Time

Alton Beer Festival

The Alton Beer Festival is now run as a charity for the benefit of worthy causes local to Alton. Nothing changes.  Great Beer - Great Food - Great Time & Great Cider.  Curry is back on the menu, ticket/beer prices remain the same.  The Gully Gully Man returns!!   We listened to your feedback, thank you.  Pork Scratchings, soft drinks and other nibbles will be available for the Summer Festival.

Don’t forget to bring your glass or rent a glass one for the session

What goes into making Great Beer for a Great Beer Festival

Langham Brewery invited Beer Festival Volunteers to spend some time at the brewery whilst beer was being brewed in time for the Winter Festival.  Follow the process on the short video to learn how it is done.

We’ve been out and about looking for more great beer, check our tweets to see what we have been up to trying to find you great beers to try.


More brewery visits soon to check them out and test their beers.  Some great breweries coming to the Summer Festival and some truly unique beer from brand new UK hops for you to try.

Our KeyKeg dispense will be better with new (secondhand) fonts and more pressure to improve the dispense time and reduce the fobbing, sounds great, hope it works.

Never been to a festival before?  Its not all beards, sandals and drunks.  Alton Beer Festival is a friendly festival, its focus is drinking for charity.  If you want to know more about beer ask one of the servers, try something different, sample some cider, try a beer from a different part of the country,  apple juice is free, food is great and music adds to the atmosphere.  On your own, home alone?  Come along and meet people having a fabulous time.
