The National Brewery Centre

A Unique Visitor Experience

Second Annual Beer Festival

21st September

The National Brewery Centre is delighted to be staging its second annual beer festival in association with CAMRA

Over 80 beers from regional breweries across the UK will be available for tasting, including seasonal, stouts, porters, fruit and mild beers, along with a range of ciders and perries.  Excellent live music has been booked for both days and great food will be on offer at The Brewery Tap Bar and Restaurant and at our BBQ and hot potato stalls.

CAMRA members will be on hand to offer their expert advice about the beers and assist with the operation of the event.

And, to add to all the fun, our Annual Barrel Rolling Championship is to take place during the Festival for the first time.  Keith Norris, Chair of the National Brewery Charitable Trust, said, ‘I am very pleased that we have been able to run the barrel rolling competition in Burton once again where it all began in 1933 with competitors from some of Burton’s breweries taking part.  Come and join us on Saturday and take part in one of Burton’s most important traditions.  It’s great fun and you could become the next champion or win one of the prizes for the top three competitors in each category.

Paula White, General Manager of The National Brewery Centre comments: ‘We are delighted to be staging our Second Annual Beer Festival in association with CAMRA. Burton is the traditional home of brewing and The National Brewery Centre offers the perfect venue. With its ‘Brewery Experience’ heritage museum, guided tours, 400 capacity marquee, steam engines, vintage vehicles and William Worthington micro-brewery – we are pleased that this festival has become a major annual event. We are grateful for the assistance that has been provided by John Saville of The Burton Old Cottage Beer Company who has sourced many of the beers that will be available at the Festival’
