"After the great first ever Morecambe Beer Festival in 2012 I cannot wait for the next!"  We much appreciate your feedback - we will continue to pull out all the stops and make every year better and better! 

Who We Are


Morecambe Beer Festival is run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers on behalf of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale).

The aim is to promote real ale in the local community, and in so doing support the pubs and bars in and around Morecambe who serve superb real ale 52 weeks a year.

CAMRA is a non-for-profit consumer organization, and therefore we donate to two worthy charities over the course of the festival.

The Friends or the Winter Gardens, who undertake the custodial duties of the iconic Winter Gardens venue, and organize a team of dedicated and skilled volunteers to undertake the conservation and renovation work of the building.

The RNLI for their unending work in and around the Morecambe Bay area, keeping locals and tourist safe. RNLI is als one of CAMRA's national chosen charities


Beer of the Festival 2012 was awarded to Cross Bay Brewery for their Zenith
