The 2013 Oxford Beer Festival will take place from Thursday 17th October to Saturday 19th October, at Oxford Town Hall (map), celebrating our sixteenth annual event at that venue.

Featuring 140 Real Ales (and 40 duplicate casks of the most popular beers for Saturday) and 50+ Real Ciders and Perrys.

Admission is £2 (free for card-carrying CAMRA members), payable on the door - there are no advanced ticket sales. A commemorative glass to keep is available at £2. Beer is paid for at the bar using beer tokens. We recommend that you buy a £6 token sheet on entry (you can buy more sheets later if needed). Unused tokens will be refunded in full as you leave the festival, or can be donated to the festival charity (Sobell House Hospice). In order to streamline the entry process and avoid a build up of the queue, please have ready £10-per-head (£8-per-head for CAMRA members), in cash, when queueing for entrance.

CAMRA volunteers are needed to help staff the festival, setup on Wednesday 16th and takedown on the morning of Sunday 20th. Contact the Staffing Officer, Steve Lawrence (staffing@oxfordcamra.org.uk, 01235 525436). The staffing form is available to download (PDF version, or Microsoft Word version), please print one and send it in as soon as possible!

Provisional Beer List

Disclaimer: availability of any particular beer during the course of the festival is at the discretion of the bar manager - we will only serve beer when and if we think it is fit to be served.

Our intention is to offer around 140 different beers, and we will have a duplicate cask of 40 of the beers which are expected to be most popular (the festival has a capacity of 180 firkins overall). The duplicates are guaranteed to be available on Saturday morning; they are intended to ensure some variety in the beer list for those who travel to the festival on Saturday, if sales are strong in the first couple of days.
