Cambridge & District CAMRA 41st Cambridge Beer Festival
That is it for the 41st outing of the Cambridge Beer Festival ... we finally cleared the site around 3pm on Friday 30th May 2014. Unfortunately, we were not as fortunate to have a repeat of previous years good weather. However, despite the rain showers and the variable temperatures during the week, there were several sunny periods, which helped encouraged a very respectable 38,500 of you to visit to the festival. Thank you for braving the weather.
We hope you had a good time and will be joining us again next year. In the mean time, we look forward to seeing you all, visitors and volunteers, again at our next event, the Cambridge & District CAMRA 8th Cambridge Octoberfest in October on Friday the 17th and Saturday the 18th October 2014 at the University Social Club.
We would just like to thank the local residents and the users of Jesus Green for their continuing support, consideration and understanding whilst the festival is on Jesus Green.
Finally, thanks also go to our loyal and hard working volunteers for their continuing to hard work to make the Cambridge Beer Festival a real success. We could not have done it without you, and hope we will see you again this year. THANK YOU one and all.
The beer and cider of the festival
This year, the visiting public voted Liverpool Organic Kitty Wilkinson as beer the festival. The volunteer staff chose Moor Old Freddy Walker as their beer of the festival.
About the festival
The Cambridge Beer Festival was first held in 1974. This festival is the branch's largest and its main beer festival. During its long run, the festival has had several homes but since 2001 has been held on Jesus Green in late May. The festival is the United Kingdom's longest running CAMRA beer festival and currently is the largest regional beer festival in the UK. The festival features a wide range of local and national beers of all styles, as well as cider, perry, mead, wine and bottled & draft beers from around the world. The festival is also famous for its CAMRA Cheese Counter, where a very wide range of fine cheeses, together with locally produced bread, pork pies, ham and other savoury items are available.
