The Beer Festival features around 130 cask ales and craft keg beers sourced from around 25 independent and micro-breweries in Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex and Berkshire. The beer line up is extremely varied, with many different ABVs, colours and different styles of beers (IPAs, best bitters, milds, porters, stouts, blonde ales, strong ales). In addition to the main beer bar, a second bar has a broad range of ciders, wines and gins from local producers along with soft drinks.
The Guildford Beer Festival also features live musical entertainment and food will be available.

The Tenth Annual Guildford Beer Festival will again be hosted by Guildford Cricket Club. The event is held in marquees at The Sports Ground in Woodbridge Road, very close to the town centre and with excellent transport links.

Plan of the venue
The venue is very attractive and there is ample seating in marquees and outdoors. There is free car parking.
This is adjacent to the entrance to the venue. The layout of the real ale and craft beers is by brewery. On the left (as you look at the bar) are breweries A-L. On the right are breweries M-Z. Therefore, all the different beers supplied by Ascot Ales are on the far left, and those from Windsor & Eton are on the far right.
Cider and Gin bar
This is attached to the Music Tent and faces the Food Court area. All ciders and gins are here, along with wine and soft drinks.
There are three separate food stands offering a wide selection of food, including vegetarian options. One offers paella; the second burgers and sausages and the third Indian food.
Note that: you pay for food using tokens.
