London Invades!

For the 2016 Festival we have decided to theme the English part on our order on the resurgence of brewing in London and we will be pulling out the stops to source a really interesting range of London Beers together with a few cider from the southeast to compare against the best Wales has to offer.

Artisan Streetfood Stalls

We are again sourcing a great selection of street food stalls this year to give you all a fantastic selection of foods to consume while you sample the many drinks on offer, including old favourites and some new names.


Olives and things, one of the many great stalls that has attended our previous events.

We are delighted to again be hosting the Champion beer of Wales Competition (CBOW) in the GWBCF. The CBOW competition decides the best beers in Wales from those shortlisted by our membership over the previous months. The winners are then forwarded on to the Champion Beer of Britain competition in the Great british beer Festival (GBBF) in August to decide the champion beer of Britain.


Judges hard at work, no rest for the wicked!
