Craft beer events UK 2017: Your festival calendar

Beavertown’s 5th birthday party might be sold out, Hop City long gone and the Brooklyn Beer Mansion over, but there are plenty more top-notch craft beer events coming up this year. Here’s a list of craft beer events and festivals in the UK for 2017 so you can mark your calendar.

If you’re looking for 2018 events, head here.

There’s so much going on in the world of craft beer that it’s hard to keep up at times (just try and keep up with the Cloudwater DIPA versions). I’ve seen lots of people asking whether there’s a list of craft beer festivals/events in one place and since there doesn’t seem to be one I thought I’d oblige.

So below are all the craft beer festivals happening during 2017, split into months and where possible I’ve included details like the location, ticket price and how many beers will be on offer.

Please note that this is not a list of CAMRA beer festivals, although I’m aware that many offer beers from craft breweries. This is mainly because there are tonnes and I want to keep the list short and neat. This also doesn’t include things like tap takeovers as there are loads – check out the regular round ups on London Brewers’ Market for those and more.

If there’s something missing (I’m sure there are some) please do shout in the comments or on Twitter.
