About Us

The Great British Beer Festival is one of the biggest, most exciting and well-known annual events in the beer and cider world dating back to 1977. Organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and staffed by 1000’s of beer loving volunteers, it brings hundreds of UK beers, international beers and real ciders and perries under the iconic Olympia London roof.

GBBF is also home to the prestigious Champion Beer of Britain award, with the winners announced on Tuesday afternoon during the trade and press session.

As well as the huge range of drinks on offer, you can enjoy a varied selection of street food and snacks. Entertainment is also included as part of the ticket price with live music in the afternoons and evenings.
