City Beerfest

City Beerfest

An annual celebration of beer held in the historic Guildhall Yard in the heart of the City of London.

In collaboration with the City of London Corporation, the Brewers’ Company organises the City Beerfest, held in the Guildhall Yard in the heart of the City each July. This popular event has become an established City tradition, raising money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and bringing beer from some of Britain’s best-loved breweries to thirsty crowds.  

City Beerfest is generously supported by Brewers’ Company member breweries who kindly donate their beer and staff time to support the event. Since 2013, City Beerfest has raised over £158,000 for charity.

City Beerfest 2024 took place in Guildhall Yard on Thursday 11 July. Visit the City Beerfest website to find out more:
