Swansea Bay Beer & Cider Festival will showcase most exciting ales from all over UK

Brangwyn Hall, Swansea, 22, 23 & 24 August 2019

Real ale fans are counting down the days to Swansea Camra’s beer and cider festival at the Brangwyn Hall.

The Swansea branch of the Campaign for Real Ale is sourcing the most exciting new brews from up and down the land, many never before seen in this area, for their 33rd annual festival.

More than 100 real ales, plus ciders and perries, will be on offer at the event from 22-24 August.

It also includes ales from the vibrant Swansea and south Wales brewing scene, which has been transformed over the past few years with dozens of new microbreweries being launched to quench a consumer thirst for new and original beers.

“It’s an exciting time to be organizing a real ale festival due to the amount of new breweries that are constantly starting up. It makes choosing the beer list a challenge as we want to keep up-to-date with the best new real ales on the market and that is what we aim to deliver at our festival,” said a Swansea Camra spokesman.

Ale categories on offer will include bitters, strong bitters and barley wines; golden and blond ales; pale ales; milds, porters and stouts; and speciality beers including lagers, wheat beers, fruit beers, gingers beers and sours.

There are now more than 100 breweries in Wales and many of those will be represented at the festival.

The Swansea Bay Beer & Cider Festival will be open from 5pm-11pm on Thursday, 22 August; and from noon to 11pm on Friday, 23 August and Saturday, 24 August. It is being held in the Brangwyn Hall, St Helen’s Road, Swansea, SA1 4PE.

A good range of hot food will be available in the Brangwyn Hall bar and there will be a great line-up of bands on the main stage in the hall.

Real ale and cider fans are spoiled for choice at Swansea's annual festival at the Brangwyn Hall.
