About the Cambridge Beer Quarter

 

The past couple of years have been hard on everyone, not least the hospitality industry,andwhen we heard that our beloved beer festival had been cancelled for the 3rd year in a row we decided something had to be done, so we are incredibly proud to introduce to you the Cambridge Beer Quarter!

We believe in collaboration not competition and so six pubs in our area have banded together to create a shared local experience for everyone to enjoy.

 

Throughout the week will be a myriad of different events, tap takeovers, meet the brewers, music, food and so much more! With each of our six venues bringing something completely different to the table. Scroll down to see THE LIST OF EVENTS and when and where they will be happening.

 

What’s more is, with your help, we can raise vital funds for 6 local charities!

10p from each festival pint sold will be donated along with £2 from each festival glass we sell, which have been very kindly donated to the cause by our awesome sponsor Gearset, a Dev-ops company based in Cambridge. More information on each charity can be found below. All money raised across the six venues will be pooled and divided equally to the charities.

 

For the full list of beers and ciders that will be available check out the BEER LIST below.

 

Keep an eye on this website for updates and on the individual pubs websites and social.
