Ashcott Beer Festival

There will be a family fun day on the Saturday and this year the theme is

The Bedrock Olympics.  As always there will be great food, ales, local ciders and wine for all to enjoy.

Check out Sarah Beeny’s ‘New Life in the

Country’ new series as they did some

filming at 2022’s Beer Fest and we are

featured in Episode 6!

We depend on our many supporters

and if you are interested in

sponsorship or providing help-in-kind

then we would love to hear from you.

Please be aware no dogs are allowed

within the beer fest site.

The Beer Fest Committee

Admission prices for 2024 here!  

The Ashcott Beer Fest is an annual event held in the village of Ashcott in Somerset.  The weekend of fine ales and entertainment is intended for both the beer expert and the family to enjoy.

Welcome to the Ashcott Beer Fest! - As seen on TV!

Help us by sponsoring a barrel of beer! Many of the local firms support us and without this we would be unlikely to make any money for our charities.

Sponsors - our heroes!

Ashcott Beer Fest has an amazing band of friendly volunteers who help with different parts of the festival. Please email (see the Contact Us page) if you would like to lend a hand.
