Birthday boys and girls are being invited to come along and celebrate their own milestone as well as help CAMRA toast four decades of running one of the world’s best known and largest beer festivals.
Much has changed in the beer world since CAMRA first launched the Great British Beer Festival. In its first year there were just 171 breweries in the UK and the Festival was one of the only places for beer drinkers to sample a huge range of beers from across the country and abroad.
Four decades on the UK now boasts more than 1,500 breweries and CAMRA runs more than 200 beer festivals across the UK with the Great British Beer Festival inspiring countless similar events. Despite the changes, the Festival remains one of the must-visit events for beer lovers looking to try a huge range and variety of beer styles and flavours.
Ian Hill, Festival Organiser says: “To celebrate 40 years of fantastic beers we will be providing an unforgettable experience for festival-goers. From expanding our drinks offering to include even more fantastic beers, ciders, perries and wines, to providing some great entertainment and street food, the event will certainly have the air of celebration. If you share a birthday with the Festival make sure to bring your ID for free entry and a free pint for you and a friend!”
