Nottingham Craft Beer Festival 2022 Tickets Now On Sale
Nottingham Craft Beer Festival returns to Sneinton Market Avenues for three sessions this June.
Nottingham Craft Beer Festival returns to the city on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 June, bringing together some of the country’s most exciting breweries and over 200 beers, including many rare and limited edition brews.
The festival marks the finale of Nottingham Craft Beer Week 2022 and takes place at the redeveloped Sneinton Market Avenues. This is the fourth year the festival has taken place and 3500+ people are expected to attend over three sessions.
Breweries from as far afield as Manchester (Cloudwater, Pomona Island), Liverpool (Black Lodge), Leeds (North Brewing Co, Amity), Newcastle (Wylam), North Wales (Pollys), Sheffield (Heist), York (Brew York), Leicester (Emperors) and Derby (Buxton) will be taking part. They join a strong Nottinghamshire-based brewery contingent that includes Bang the Elephant, Black Iris, Brew Cavern, Castle Rock, Liquid Light, Magpie, Navigation, Neon Raptor and Totally Brewed. A range of non-beer drinks will also be available from local suppliers at the festival including wine (Blend Cafe), cider (Magpie Brewery), gin (Redsmith Distillery) and various liqueurs (Oxton Liqueur Company).
“After the success of previous years, we’re proud to bring this event back to the Sneinton Market Avenues,” said co-organiser Al Gilby. “We managed to put on a great, if slightly scaled down, festival last year despite the pandemic. This year we’re hopeful we’ll be back fully and able to welcome more people in.”
“One of the special things about our festival is that all the drinks stalls are staffed by people who work at the breweries. So if you go up to a stall and buy a beer; you can ask them directly about the drink, its ingredients and the process that went into making it.”
As well as a lot of great beer, the festival will also feature street food, live music, tutored tastings and various other entertainment. Tickets are on sale for £12 per session and the price includes a programme and souvenir festival glass. The event is split into three sessions; Friday night (5.30-10.30pm), Saturday day (12-5pm) and Saturday night (6-10.30pm). The event is completely cashless and all payments for beer and food will be taken at each stall using contactless or chip and pin.
The event will be the finale of Nottingham Craft Beer Week 2022 (NCBW22), which in 2020 was awarded the title of the ‘UK’s Best Craft Beer Promotion’ from SIBA (the Society of Independent Brewers). Other events confirmed for NCBW22 (which runs from 11-18 June) include talks from various national beer experts and authors around the city.
Tickets are £12 per session (+BF) and on sale now.
