Beer List

We are very sorry, a courier has lost the parcels with our programmes in, so this year we’re unlikely to have any printed programmes available.

Those wanting to print their own can download it from here. The beer list from that programme is available below.

For those with a smartphone, we have a Live Beer List. Please go there to see our latest live beer information and availability!

Below is the last published 2018 Belfast Beer & Cider Festival Beer List. As always, this list may change due to issues beyond our control.
