Following three great years in Norwich, the Great British Beer Festival Winter is moving to Birmingham as part of its three-year rotation around the country. 

As the West Midlands is a region built on the trade and innovation of the industrial revolution, 2020’s festival will be themed “A Festival of a Thousand Trades”, celebrating industry, diversity, and creativity throughout time. This theme will define the drinks on offer, which will include a range of spirits and non-alcoholic options to accompany over 400 beers, ciders and perries that will represent the region, the wider United Kingdom, and beyond.

Alongside the drinks, the festival will feature games and activities, musical entertainment, a range of mouth-watering food stalls, and a selection of tastings and talks for those looking to expand their horizons further.

As always, the Great British Beer Festival Winter will continue to host the finals of the winter beer categories in the Champion Beer of Britain Competition, with the winners going forward to that year’s final at the Great British Beer Festival in August.


The Great British Beer Festival Winter will be operating a Challenge 25 Policy.
