Thirteenth Annual Guildford Beer Festival

The Thirteenth Guildford Beer Festival took place at Guildford Cricket Club on 20-21 July 2023.  Thank you to those who attended!

We had a record attendance at the opening session on Friday evening.  The new layout for the event was well received, as was the usual wide range of local real ales and craft beers, gins and spirits from four distilleries, and ciders and wines.

The date for the GBF in 2024 will be announced towards the end of this year.  Watch this space or click HERE to join our Mailing List.
