The Seventh Annual Guildford Beer Festival

Guildford Beer Festival 2016The Seventh Annual Guildford Beer Festival
took place on 10 – 11 June 2016.

It was a huge success …

Thank you to the record-breaking 4,200 people attending the Guildford Beer Festival held at Guildford Cricket Club on Friday and Saturday 10-11 June. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Guildford Beer Festival local beers

Over 300 barrels of real ale, craft lagers and handmade cider were consumed. As a totally local event, all beers and cider were sourced from independent and micro-breweries within a 30 mile radius of Guildford. There were more than 100 different beers and ciders from 30+ breweries and producers.

James Faulkner, Chairman of the GBF Organising Committee said: “This was our most ambitious festival yet. We are delighted that despite being the largest ever, the event has kept its unique atmosphere, which so many people enjoy. It is fantastic the event keeps going from strength to strength. The feedback on social media and in person from those who attended has been universally positive.”

For the second year, the GBF had its own App. The App provided tasting notes on the different beers and enabled attendees to create their own personal list to try, and also to vote for the Beer of the Festival.

Live music was a hit

Headliners Tom Worrall and Johnson Jay kept the crowd entertained with fantastic live music on Saturday evening in the Anderton’s Music Tent. Local ukulele group UkeJam gave a rousing performance on Saturday afternoon.

We’d love to have your feedback, so if you want to share any thoughts on the Guildford Beer Festival, please reach us out to us.
