The Gateshead Beer Festival

We are based at Gateshead Rugby club in Low Fell and the event is run by a hardy bunch of volunteers with all funds raised going to the development of Rugby. What initially started off as a small festival in 2010 has quickly grown into one of the largest in the North.

Whilst we reach out to many far afield we are very much about building a festival that brings together the local communities. We also support local businesses by sourcing local produce, as well as involving local charities.

We have a great selection of ales & ciders that are sourced countrywide but we also always ensure that we provide a great springboard for local brewers to showcase their Ales. In addition to the ciders, ales and Cava bar we now have the Jam Jar bar (Gin Bar) & Whisky Bar.

Don’t worry about going hungry, we have a great selection of Hot & Cold foods served in our new indoor foodcourt area.
