Local beer at the GBF

The Beer Festival features around 120 cask ales and chilled craft beers sourced from independent and micro-breweries in Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex and Berkshire. There will also be an attractive offering of ciders, wines and soft drinks, and a separate gin bar.

There is live musical entertainment and food available.

Silent Pool gin bar

This year will see the return of the very successful Silent Pool gin bar, serving locally produced gins and spirits.

The beer garden

The Ninth 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.

Beer tent

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 Andwell are on the far left, and those from Windsor & Eton are on the far right.

Cider tent

This is attached to the Music Tent and faces the Food Court area. All ciders are here, along with wine and soft drinks.

Silent Pool gin bar

This is between the Main Beer Tent and Andertons’ Music Tent. Locally distilled gin and vodka served with Fever Tree tonic.

Food court

There are three separate food stands. One offers a hog roast, burgers and sausages; the second a wood burning pizza oven and the third Mexican food (to include a dish for vegetarians and vegans).

Note that: you pay for food using cash not tokens.

Andertons’ music tent

There will be an attractive programme of live music performed on the stage in our marquee, where there is seating inside and outdoors.

The GBF is again working with Andertons Music to assemble a tremendous line up, with some of the best local bands and artists.
