A great day at City Beerfest!

A marvellous day was had by all at this year’s City Beerfest on Thursday 18 July!  The Guildhall Yard was filled with people enjoying the beer and the sunshine in equal measure from 12.30 until 9.00pm.  With over 70 beers on offer, there was something for just about everyone and we are hugely grateful to all of the breweries who participated: Lagunitas Brewing Company, Big Drop Brewing Co, Barcelona Beer Company, Camerons Brewery, Freedom Brewery, Fullers, Greene King, Harvey’s Brewery, Hook Norton Brewery, McMullen & Sons, Meantime, Shepherd Neame, Sleeman Breweries, Small Beer Brew Co, Theakstons and West Berkshire Brewery.

Over 4,500 people came out to enjoy the event all in aid of the organisations supported by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal: Place2Be, On Side Youth Zones and Samaritans.  In total over £10,000 was raised for these fantastic causes.

Put the date for next year’s City Beerfest in your diary now – Thursday 2 July, we look forward to seeing you there!
