Welcome everybody to the official website of the legendary Bolton Beer Festival! Held each year at Bolton Rugby Club, the Beer Festival is by far and away the most popular social event in the town's calendar.
Open to anyone over the age of 18, this year's festival will run from Wednesday 15th - Saturday 18th October. As always we will have over 200 cask ales from all around the UK, lagers from all over the world and a fantastic selection of tradition ciders. We also have wines, spirits and soft drinks on offer to cater for all tastes.
Please take some time to look through our website to find out how you can get involved at this year's festival, either by attending with friends, or perhaps as a corporate sponsor.
And remember, every penny raised at the festival goes straight to our chosen charity, Bolton Lads & Girls Club.
Thanks for visiting the site - CHEERS!
