Now in its 3rd year we return to Aviva (possibly for the last time sadly) in May with more great beer and exciting local food selections, plus live music at both evening sessions.

With 30 beers to choose from plus a good selection of cider and perry, you simply need to decide which of the 3 sessions you want to attend. Launching on Friday 13th at 6pm all beers will be tapped and ready, followed by 2 sessions on Saturday 14th May. So save the date and alert friends, family and neighbours that Spring is definitely here and the beer festival season about to start.

Which beers will you have? We’re working on the selection at the moment but follow us on Twitter @dorkingbeerfest to hear the beers announced. Final list will be published here a week before the Festival

Any drinks other than beer available? A good selection of cider and perry will also be on offer during the Festival and the bar will be open for wine/spirits

Can I bring the kids? To the Saturday afternoon session, yes, providing they are outside and not in the bar area. For the evening sessions bring friends, the Mrs, the boss, your better half, in-laws, parents, colleagues, loved ones, family, neighbours – anyone.

I want to get a group together; can you do a special rate? For parties of 10 or more just click here and check out our group rate

Are you serving food? Yes we’ll have a good selection available. On the BBQ you’ll find our delicious banger and burger selection, direct from Robert Edwards in Reigate and our unique Surrey Snack Boxes make a return, featuring fresh produce from Robert Edwards, Norbury Blue Cheese Company & Chalk Hills Bakery  that will match the beers brilliantly meaning you won’t need to nip off to KFC or Domino’s at any time.
