About the British Beer List

The 3rd York Beer & Cider Festival will feature up to 250 different beers. The beer order has been put together with the intention of providing a wide range of styles and strengths, new beers and well known ones, particularly those which may not be seen in the York area on a regular basis.

Local breweries within a 25 mile radius of York will be featured on a separate LocAle bar to highlight York CAMRA's campaign to reduce beer miles by encouraging as many pubs as possible to stock at least one local beer.

There is also a range of beers from Yorkshire breweries who do not qualify for LocAle but since we are blessed with a large number of excellent breweries in Yorkshire unfortunately we cannot have all of them at the festival.

Free Pint If You Join CAMRA At The Festival

This year we will be providing a free pint of our festival special beer to anyone joining CAMRA at the festival. Just visit the CAMRA stand for details.

Soft Drinks

Soft drinks and snacks will be available from the CAMRA stand in the main tent.

Fentimans will be selling their range of non-alcoholic drinks from their stall.
