With just 100 days to go until Britain’s largest beer festival, CAMRA has unveiled its brewery bar lineup – a chance for the nation’s best brewers to showcase their most innovative and exciting brews.

The Great British Beer Festival, taking place at London Olympia from 6-10 August, boasts over a thousand British and international beers, ciders, perries, wines and – new for 2019 – a dedicated gin bar.

The brewery lineup is a unique feature of the festival where brewers from across the country are invited to bring their beer range to sample.

24 breweries will be on show this year with big names such as Harvey’s, St Austell and Adnams alongside microbrewers including Moon Gazer, Brewery of Angels & Demons and Beer Monkey. New attendee West Berkshire Brewery will be serving direct from their beer van and St Austell will bring a DJ to add to the festivities.

Catherine Tonry, Great British Beer Festival organiser, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming back returning brewers and new faces to the festival. The brewery bar lineup is always a feature favourite for our visitors, giving them a unique chance to enjoy a wide range of beers from breweries from around the country.”

The full list of breweries include:

  • Adnams – established in 1872, Adnams make amazing beers and spirits from grain-to-glass in their east coast home of Southwold.

  • Anspach & Hobday – founded by home-brewing school friends, Anspach & Hobday brew quality ales, porters and lagers from the heart of London with a strong influence of tradition and a keen eye on the future.
