Lincoln Beer Festival is a major event in the city’s social calendar, enjoyed by thousands of drinkers. In the comfortable surroundings of Lincoln Drill Hall, you will find a choice of over 100 real ales from across the UK. And, this year, we have a number of ales brewed specially to commemorate the centenary of the Royal Air Force. There is also a selection of traditional, farm-produced cider and perry, plus bottled beers from around the world.

Mingle in the main hall with regulars and visitors to the city, or relax in the Café Bar and enjoy tasty food and live music.

The festival is organised and staffed by local CAMRA volunteers.
