Tickets are now on sale for the Great British Beer Festival Winter (GBBF Winter), taking place for the first time in Birmingham from 4-8 February at New Bingley Hall.

Known as a ‘festival of a thousand trades’, GBBF Winter will celebrate the West Midlands’ industry, diversity and creativity throughout time.

This theme will define the drinks on offer, which will include a range of spirits and non-alcoholic options to accompany over 400 beers, ciders and perries that represent the region, the wider United Kingdom, and beyond.

Alongside the drinks, the festival will feature games and activities, musical entertainment, a range of mouth-watering food stalls, and a selection of tastings and talks for those looking to expand their horizons further.

GBBF Winter creative director David Glenwright said: “We’re incredibly excited to host the Great British Beer Festival Winter in Birmingham for the first time.

“The festival moves around the country every three years to give beer drinkers across every corner of the UK the chance to sample a huge range of fantastic brews. Birmingham is the ideal home this year as we have a rich heritage of food and drinks that can be represented at the festival.

“We look forward to welcoming beer-lovers from both near and far to this year’s event.”

The champion winter beer of Britain will be announced on the first day of the festival. A CAMRA members only and trade session is also held on the first day.

Members should go to the CAMRA’s web festivals event page for a discount code for buying tickets.
