Southern Hampshire CAMRA

Beer Festivals Archive

Southern Hampshire CAMRA has been running the Southampton Beer Festival at Southampton Guildhall for the past 17 years.

In 2010 we added to this by organising an Autumn Festival, in Woolston, appropriately called Woolston Beer Festival. We repeated this the next year and it has become annual event.

In 2011 we held Winchester Real Ale and Cider Festival at the end of March, returning a CAMRA beer festival to Winchester Guildhall after a gap of 28 years. This was another big success and the repeat events in 2012, 2013 & 2014 were equally so.

All the staff at our beer festivals are volunteers. Many members of Southern Hampshire CAMRA also volunteer their time to work at the Great British Beer Festival each year.

Some of our aims in running beer festivals are:

  • To serve customers quality cask conditioned real ale.
  • To promote real ale to the local community, therefore increasing its popularity.
  • To promote membership of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.

Non-CAMRA Beer Festivals

Many beer festivals take place in our branch area, or nearby, that are not CAMRA beer festivals. Despite being unable to endorse these events, we believe that any beer festival that sells quality cask-conditioned real ales should be supported (see you there!). The information given here is purely for the benefit of readers, and is accurate to the best of our knowledge.
