About the Festival

Held in the 14th Century St Andrews Church, Sutton Beer Festival started in 2008.So far there have been eleven summer festivals and five winter festivals.

The 12th summer festival will take place this year from 25 to 27 July.

New beers and ciders will be available and the usual array of chili, stew, sausage rolls and pork pies will also be on sale each evening. Saturday afternoon's family session will have a barbecue and a bouncy castle.

Entry to Friday's & Saturday's evening sessions is £3.00 with half-price concessions for designated drivers.

Festival glasses will be on sale at £2 each.

We introduced them in summer 2017 and are keeping them for 2018 - To allow you to taste more beers on Saturday daytime we will have the "beer bat" - three third-pint glasses served in a wooden bat. We're also selling Mulled Cyder as well as the usual wines.

NEW for 2019 we are pleased to announce that we will have Ely Gin for the first time this summer. Six different flavours of gin and various tonics will be available for you to taste.

All profits go to St Andrew's Church. We've raised around £22,000 through the last four years' festivals and hope to build on that once again. Thank you for your continued support!
