The Great British Beer Festival

This year the Great British Beer Festival celebrates its 30th birthday. Join in the festivities at Earls Court from 1-8 August and sample over 450 real ales, as well as a wide range of beers and lagers from around the world. There'll also be tutored tastings, live music and a children's room. The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), who organise the festival, expect around 300,000 pints to be pulled during the week.
