Beer Festivals

South Devon CAMRA have organised a beer festival annually in late summer but for one reason and another this hasn't taken place since 2012 until last year. Following the success of that festival we will be holding one again from Thursday, 25th to Saturday, 27th July 2019 at Teignmouth Rugby Club. With the proliferation of local beer festivals we also help staff several local festivals and offer advice to local festival organisers.

Below is a list of forthcoming beer festivals in and around our area are listed below. Do let us know if there are any festivals servicing real ale that we've not listed and we'll happily add details of them to the list.
