15th Annual Beer Festival

15 - 17 July 2016

Our 15th Annual Beer Festival will be held from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 July 2016. Beer, food, drink and entertainment will be all available over the three days at Sheringham station.

Our Beer Festival is established in the calendars of beer (and rail) enthusiasts' alike. The festival continues to be successful with each year building on the last! 

Please note that if you are lucky enough to look under 25, we will require identification in order to serve you, please don't be offended if a member of our staff asks, and don't forget to bring some with you, we would hate for you to go home disappointed!

The frequent service on the Bittern Line from Norwich via North Walsham, Wroxham and Cromer to Sheringham (roughly every hour) means that Festival goers can safely drink without driving, a timetable for these services is available from Abellio Greater Anglia. (Norwich - Sheringham). From Norwich there are frequent connections to Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, London, Ipswich, Ely, Cambridge and Nottingham.


The Beer List for 2016 will be published about a week before the event, the 2015 Beer List is available to download as a PDF document by clicking here... it certainly went down well as we were drunk dry fairly quickly!
