Southampton Beer Festival to Return to St Mary’s in 2018

8th Mar 2018 at 9:51 am

The annual CAMRA Southampton Beer Festival will be returning to St Mary's Stadium on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June 2018, and the festival will be bringing along Southampton's longest bar and largest selection of beer with it.

Last year CAMRA held the Southampton Beer Festival at St Mary's Stadium for the first time ever. The festival proved to be popular, with over 2200 people attending. Building on the feedback and successes of last year's event, this year is going to be bigger and better than ever.

The festival will feature a vast range of up to 100 real ales and craft beers, 30 ciders and perries, and a range of exciting and vibrant international bottled beers. Due to the success of the beer and brewery choices from last year, CAMRA have been led to look for more one-off beers, collaborations brews, and beers from up and coming 'craft' breweries, alongside the more established local and national breweries and microbreweries.

It has also been announced that a 'festival theme' will return, following the requests from guests who have attended in previous years. The theme will be announced by CAMRA closer to the festival to keep customers guessing.

Tickets for the Southampton Beer Festival will be sold earlier this year, making it suitable to purchase tickets as gifts and to help reduce the last-minute ticket rush. The tickets will be on sale from mid to late March, and will be available from the following ticket outlets:

Bitter Virtue

Belgium and Blues


The Guide Dog

St Mary's Stadium 

Through the Festival Website - link here.

Tickets are priced at £6 for the Friday Afternoon Session, £10 for the Friday Evening Session, £9 for the Saturday Afternoon Session and £7 for the closing Saturday Evening Session.

As well as all of the beer, cider and entertainment, CAMRA will also be welcoming back a range of stalls, including Oddfellows Chocolates, and the popular Olives and Things.
