Nottingham Craft Beer Festival – Breweries

This year’s breweries include DEYA Brewing Company from Cheltenham, North Brewery from Leeds, Overtone Brewery from Glasgow, Buxton brewery from Derbyshire and Mount Saint Bernard Abbey, who offer beer brewed by monks from a Trappist order. Nottingham-based breweries include Bang The Elephant, Black Iris, Castle Rock, Liquid Light, Magpie and Neon Raptor, who have their own tap room on site and are promising to break out their beer slushy machine if the weather is good enough.

Festival Organiser Al Gilby said “Nottingham Craft Beer Festival isn’t just for those with a craft beer obsession. Our ever growing festival is an opportunity to enjoy a unique location in a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere.

“We’re probably the only beer festival in the country that has a record shop, an art gallery and an antique shop open on the festival site. You’ll also get a lovely festival glass to take home afterwards and a paper bag at the exit to increase your chances of getting it home in one piece.” 

Street Food

This year’s festival is sponsored by BaartHaas X (brewery suppliers), Gigantic (ticketing), LeftLion (media) and NFU mutual (insurance). Street food will be on offer from a range of food trucks, curated by the site residents Bustler. Live music and DJs will also feature at each session of the festival.
