Saints go marching in for beer

Southampton Beer Festival

Beer festival comes to St Mary’s

There's a brand new venue for this year's Southampton Beer Festival... St Mary's Stadium, home of Southampton Football Club.

And there'll be up to 90 high-quality cask ales and a range of up to 30 popular ciders and perries to tease the taste-buds from 23-24 June!

This year's festival features a new layout – with one side being designated as a quiet area where you can sit and enjoy a tipple chatting to friends, and the other side housing the stage and live music throughout the festival, with 12 top musical acts arranged by one of Southampton's premier music venues, the Frog & Frigate.

Sponsorship for the festival comes from Southampton's newest micro brewery, The London Road Brew House; Southampton's award winning microbrewery, The Dancing Man; and celebrating 30 years of successful quality brewing, Hop Back Brewery. Each of the breweries will be showcasing their beers on the "long bar"!

Tickets can be purchased through the festival website or from ticket partners – Dancing Man, Belgium & Blues, Bitter Virtue, The Guide Dog, The Tipsy Pig (Romsey), and Ebenezer's (Hythe).
