We all know that the South West is cider country, but that hasn't stopped Bristolians embracing the craft beer revolution that's swept the UK over recent years.
Some of the best small-scale breweries in the country hail from round these parts, and fantastic specialist craft beer bars and pubs continue to pop up all over town (check our recent round-up of the city's best craft beer and best craft beer bars). As such, it's only right that in a city that loves a festival there should be one dedicated to the joys of craft beer and real ale.
Taking place at in the high-ceilinged halls of Motion's Skate Park on September 2-3, Bristol Craft Beer Festival comes from the team behind the hugely popular London Craft Beer Festival, and will form the finale for this year's Bristol Beer Week with two days of music, street food and brilliant beer to try, buy and take home.
There will be two sessions each day, letting you sample over 250 different beers from local, national and international brewers, with tickets priced at £30.
