The Great British Beer Festival was held at Earls Court for the first time in 2006 and was the biggest festival so far with over 450 real ales and over 65,000 visitors. Also known as the Biggest Pub in the World, the festival played host to a wide range of beers and real lagers from the UK and around the world.
Imagine a pub the size of an aircraft hanger; that serves every type of beer you can think of, and even some you probably wont have. Its staffed by people who are knowledgeable and passionate about their beer, who can recommend the perfect drink for both connoisseurs and the enthusiastic amateur.
There are over 750 types of beer for sale, featuring over 450 of the best British ales, along with the Bieres San Frontieres bar where you can sample some of the great beers from all around the world. For even more choice, there is also a real cider and perry bar serving these wonderful fresh and increasingly popular drinks.
With Live Music, auctions, good grub coupled with a festival atmosphere - come along and visit Britains biggest beer festival under one roof!
