Bigger and Better – the Newbury Racecourse Beer Festival


A mammoth list of 52 ales and 10 ciders has been revealed for Newbury Racecourse’s sixth annual Beer Festival which takes place over Dubai Duty Free Spring Trials Weekend on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 April.

Returning favourites include brews from West Berkshire, Rebellion, Windsor & Eton, Two Cocks and Loddon breweries, while exciting Newbury newbies arrive from Stonehenge Ales, Bond Brews and Wild Weather Ales.

The festival will be open on both days of the Dubai Duty Free Spring Trials Meeting and will be found in a marquee on the Grandstand Lawn. Gates open at 12 noon on Friday and 11am on Saturday giving racegoers plenty of time to sample a wonderful variety of tipples before the first race of each day gets underway. After racing on Saturday there will be live music from folk duo Steve Carroll and Megan Rhodes into the evening.
