Beer Festival

2017 Beer Festival News

Unfortunately, we have no dates as yet for a festival in 2017. Pittodrie has ceased to be a viable site for our event in the future.

We are actively looking at alternative venues to hold the 31st Great Grampian Beer Festival. Dates will be dependant on availability of the chosen venue. We will not be constrained to within the period end of May to beginning of June. This was because at Pittodrie we had to have dates outwith the football fixture season.

As soon as we have fixed a new venue and dates, an announcement will be posted here. We hope to welcome back our devout festival regulars and visitors alike to our new venue once decided.
