Lincoln Beer Festival is a major event in the city’s social calendar, enjoyed by thousands of drinkers. In the comfortable surroundings of The Drill, you will find a choice of over 100 real ales from across the UK. There is also a selection of traditional, farm-produced cider and perry.
Mingle in the main hall with regulars and visitors to the city, or relax in the café bar and enjoy tasty food from Limelight, the in-house restaurant.
The festival is organised and staffed by local CAMRA volunteers.
