Bewdley Beer Festival
It all began with two and a half tonnes of beer, a fifty-six-foot long bar, one tonne of scaffolding, and fifty-one different beers from thirty-seven different breweries. The first ever Bewdley Beer Festival was born!
Now, over 1500 people come together to experience hundreds of the best beers the UK has to offer over an action-packed four-day festival!
