NEWS: Bristol Craft Beer Festival returns with array of craft beers, culinary delights and mega music

The 2022 festival season is fast approaching with the return of Bristol Craft Beer Festival on 10-11 June 2022. Festival fans and craft beer lovers will have the chance to bask in the Bristol sunshine while enjoying their favourite craft beers from around the globe. 

A celebration of brewing culture in Bristol and beyond, the Bristol Craft Beer Festival 2022 will feature a huge variety of the world’s finest beers. Festivalgoers can enjoy beers from over 40 world-class breweries, with hundreds of delicious beers on offer from local breweries like Wiper & True and Arbor Ales, alongside national and international big hitters like North Brewing Co from Leeds, Hackney Brewery and New Zealand Beer Collective. Plus, further European and US breweries still to be announced.


Music legends DJ Spoony and Beardyman will join Bristol’s Saffron Records to provide the musical entertainment over the two-day festival. British DJ and radio presenter, DJ Spoony is a member of the UK garage production trio, the Dreem Teem. He is widely considered one of the godfathers of the UK garage scene, while Beardyman is a multi-vocalist, musician and comedian from London, known for his beatboxing skills and use of live looping. Both artists will be DJing across the two-day festival.

This years’ Bristol Craft Beer Festival also sees a fantastic line-up of local chefs join the festivities at the Lloyds Amphitheatre to feed the hungry craft beer lover. Organisers have teamed up with some of the city’s most esteemed food outlets, to bring the most diverse and varied food offering that the festival has ever seen.

Bristol’s very own beer and cheese shop, Two Belly, will also be on site with their ‘The Cheese Guys’ food truck – serving gooey raclette and cheese toasties – alongside Mexican street food operators, Little Taquero.

Greg Wells, Bristol Craft Beer Festival founder says of the music and food offerings this year:

“What makes Bristol Craft Beer Festival is that it’s greater than the sum of its parts. Amazing brews, incredible food, music and atmosphere all combine to make a truly special event.”

“We’re really excited by this food line-up as we’ve got some Bristol favourites in there. Music-wise we are back with a bang this year with legends DJ Spoony and Beardyman, plus Bristol’s own Saffron Records.

“Get ready for two days of the best breweries from around the world, a mouth-watering food offering, a mega music line-up and the waterside location of Lloyds Amphitheatre and it’s an event you don’t want to miss!”
