The twentieth annual CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival will run from Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th March 2017 at Brunelís Old Station, Temple Meads, Bristol. There will be a carefully chosen selection of around 140 different real ales on sale over the course of the festival as well as a good range of cider and perry. There will also be a variety of food available at all sessions. The Thursday evening session proved very popular at the 2016 Bristol Beer Festival and so for 2017 we are going to open a bit earlier at 6:30pm, the same as for the Friday and Saturday evenings.

On Sunday 5th February 2017 tickets will go on sale to CAMRA members at the COMMERCIAL ROOMS in Corn Street, Bristol from 12 noon until 2pm. Please bring the correct cash to the ticket sales sessions as we will not be able to accept cheques or credit cards. Tickets will only be sold to card-carrying CAMRA members at this session. Anyone who signs up to join CAMRA on Sunday 5th February will also be able to purchase festival tickets. The purchasing limits that apply for each valid CAMRA membership card presented are as follows:

For the Friday lunchtime, Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime sessions a maximum of any four tickets in total may be purchased (for example you could purchase 4 tickets for Friday lunchtime OR 2 Tickets for Friday evening and 2 Tickets for Saturday lunchtime). There is no limit on the number of tickets that may be purchased for the Thursday evening and Saturday evening sessions.

A simultaneous CAMRA member ticket sale will take place with the same rules at OFF THE RAILS at Weston-super-Mare train station on Sunday 5th February.

From Tuesday 7th February the remaining tickets will then be available to everyone to purchase ONLINE and the details of this will appear here on this website.

If there are tickets remaining by Wednesday 22nd February then some will be put on sale at the SEVEN STARS in Thomas Lane, Bristol.

All ticket prices include £4 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 for further beer festival information including updates about ticket availability (including online sales) and the beer and cider lists as they become available.
