Good Afternoon,

It is with great disappointment and frustration that we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s Charity Beer Festival.

As an event run entirely by volunteers, with all profits going to charities, this was not a decision taken lightly but the potential complications & unknowns raised by Covid 19, and to a lesser extent the extended lead in times for the beer festival glasses & equipment due to supply problems, meant we could not guarantee that the usual quality of event would be able to go ahead and a last minute postponement would have cost us, and therefore our charities, a great deal of time & money.

We are not cancelling and are already working hard investigating dates and options for a rescheduled event in the Spring of 2022 and whilst ticket refunds would be possible we would be really grateful if you could bear with us and retain your ticket purchase for any rescheduled event we confirm in the near future – tickets will remain for sale on our website for the rescheduled event.

We are also looking at the option of arranging smaller pop-up beer festival events at unusual venues locally and ticket holders will be given first refusal on the limited tickets that will be made available. Refunds could of course still be made if requested. Please contact me as per details below.

Thanks very much for supporting the Gartness Beer Festival & our charities and we can’t wait to see everyone again when we reschedule.

Welcome to the Gartness Beer Festival

Saturday 23rd October 2021




The 2021 Gartness Beer Festival

5pm ‘til 10pm on Saturday 23rd October Nr Drymen


The Gartness Beer Festival was established in 2012 to raise money for local charities by drinking Real Ale & Ciders – the more you drank, the more we raised for charity. 
These days we also include Craft Beers, Lagers and a fancy standalone Luxurious Wine Bar with Prosecco, Gins etc. all helping us to raise over £12,000 in 2019 for Doddie Weir’s MND charity and local charities.
We now have a much higher profile in the media and can offer several different options to get Sponsors involved – please email or call Murray to discuss.


Just off the Gartness Road between Drymen and Killearn in a large warm barn, and this year it really, really will have heating!


Only £20 for the best Charity Beer Festival in the World……probably.
Tickets only available online and numbers are strictly limited – relevant Covid 19 protocols applicable at the time will apply.
Strictly over 18s only – no exceptions.
