Cheltenham & Gloucester Beer Week is an exciting collection of beer related events held in many different venues in both Cheltenham & Gloucester across a ten-day period from 15th – 24th September 2017.
About Beer Week
The 2017 event builds on the successful Cheltenham Beer Week event which took place in 2016. This year we will be promoting events in both Cheltenham and Gloucester.
The concept of Beer Weeks in the UK first started in 2011 when Norwich held their first ‘City of Ale’ programme of events. Since then several cities including London, Bristol, Sheffield and Nottingham have held Beer Weeks with Manchester and Birmingham launching their own events alongside Cheltenham last year. Many more cities and towns are expected to launch their own beer weeks in 2017.
The concept of beer weeks is very strong in the USA where nearly every major city holds one and many smaller towns have been running events for many years.
