Breweries Pouring At Nottingham Craft Beer Festival 2024

One of the unique-selling points of our festival is that we don’t just buy beers in to sell on to you. Instead we bring the breweries to you directly. When you visit NCBF you buy your beers from stalls staffed by representatives from that brewery. So if you have any questions about the beer you have the right people in front of you to ask…
