Bristol Beer Festival 2014
The seventeenth annual CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival will run from Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th March 2014 at Brunelís Old Station, Temple Meads, Bristol. There will be an excellent range of over 130 different real ales on sale over the course of the festival as well as a great selection of cider and perry. There will also be a variety of food available at all sessions.
The session times and ticket prices remain unchanged for 2014 and the details are shown in the table below. However, the rules around the number of tickets that may be purchased have been adjusted and there will be improved online availability of tickets. Please bring the correct cash to the ticket sales sessions as we will not be able to accept cheques or credit cards.
On Sunday 2nd February tickets will go on sale to CAMRA members at the COMMERCIAL ROOMS in Corn Street, Bristol from 12 noon until 2pm.
Tickets will only be sold to card-carrying CAMRA members at this session. Anyone who signs up to join CAMRA on Sunday 2nd February will also be able to purchase festival tickets. The following purchasing limits will apply for each valid CAMRA membership card presented:
So to give some examples, you can purchase 2 tickets for Friday lunchtime and 2 tickets for Saturday lunchtime, or 2 tickets for Friday evening and 4 tickets for Saturday evening, or 5 tickets for Thursday evening and 2 tickets for Saturday lunchtime.
From Tuesday 4th February some tickets will be available to purchase ONLINE for the Thursday evening and Saturday evening sessions. Full details of this will appear on this website on 4th February..
On Sunday 16th February tickets will go on public sale at the OLD FISH MARKET in Baldwin Street, Bristol from 12 noon until 2pm.
All remaining tickets will be on sale to everyone (including CAMRA members) up to a maximum of four tickets per person for the Friday lunchtime, Friday evening, Saturday lunchtime and Saturday evening sessions. For the Thursday evening session we do not currently anticipate applying a limit to the number of tickets that can be purchased. For example if there are tickets remaining for these sessions you can buy 2 tickets for Friday evening and 2 tickets for Saturday evening, or 4 tickets for Saturday evening, or 5 tickets for Thursday evening.
Simultaneous ticket sales will take place with the same rules at OFF THE RAILS at Weston-super-Mare train station on both Sunday 2nd February and Sunday 16th February.
If there are any tickets remaining after these sessions they will be put on general sale at the SEVEN STARS in Thomas Lane, Bristol from Wednesday 19th February.
All ticket prices include £5 worth of beer festival tokens, which customers will receive on entry enabling them to go straight to the bar. Also included are a festival programme and a commemorative half pint glass, marked for third and half-pint measures.
We strongly advise keeping an eye on this website as it will feature further beer festival information including updates about ticket availability (including online sales) and the beer and cider lists as they become available.
