The Basics

There is a strict policy of No Cash at The Bar. Purchase beer tokens on entry and exchange these for ale inside the venue. More about this can be found in the FAQ.

In order to keep waiting times to a minimum we are not able to offer carry-outs during most of the public opening hours.

Remember to vote for your own favourite this year.

There is no music or other entertainment at this festival because we prefer the deafening cacophony of garulous people.

Aberdeen FC are providing the catering; CAMRA have no control over menu, portion size, quality, availability or price. In past years Stovies have proven a popular filler. Unfortunately there are very few alternative take-away food venues close by. You might like to try the restaurants at Aberdeen beach, or bring a sandwich.

Toilet facilities are almost without limit.

Disabled access to the venue is available.

There is no access to the football playing surface or stadium stands.


The 2016 festival charity is Aberdeen Lions
