The Merchant Adventurers’ Charity Beer Festival will be back in 2025!


The stunning 667 year old Merchant Adventurers’ Hall will take centre stage, complemented by over 30 breweries showcasing over 90 ales, beers, lagers and ciders.  Headline sponsor Brew York and Elvington Brewery will be pouring a wide range of their most popular ales, alongside some new and exciting brews!


The Great Hall will be transformed into our Keg Beer Hall and the atmospheric Undercroft of the Hall will be home to the 50 foot Cask Bar.  Outside the garden will host street food and entertainment.


The 2023 Festival raised £13,000 for the Charitable Trust, which supports education projects for local children across the city.  So far this year 1300 local primary school children have attended fully funded visits to the Hall to enhance their studies of local history.  Working with York Independent State School Partnership, 70 Year 9 & 10 students have taken part in an innovative business and enterprise course.  The aim for 2024 is to raise £17,000 for the Charitable Trust.




We look forward to welcoming you next year!
