£7 per person includes a beautifully-logo'd free F-R-O-S-T-E-D beer glass, full of your choice of Fine Ale (or Pimms of equivalent price), and gives you access to a great range of local beers with a choice of wines, ciders and non-alcoholic drinks too. Not to mention all the bands that will be playing over the course of the Friday and Saturday! Uh, OK looks like we did mention it.
Beer costs £3 per pint or £1.50 per half pint. Coz that's half of £3, right? Pimms is the same, Wine is £2 a large glass, and Prosecco is £2.50 a glass. Softy drinksies are between 50p and £1. Is that all OK?
We don't sell coffee, custard or diesel, so don't ask.
No additional entry charges for beards or slightly ironic T shirts
Tasty and healthy(ish!) food is served inside. Similar price to the beer. Do you get the impression someone wanted the Beer Fest to be a fun night out at a sensible price? Kinda working too!

Saturday .... we're stuffed. Rural Transport, eh?
Southampton airport is only a few minutes away by taxi. No really, we don't joke! We had a great bunch of people from Germany come to visit the Beer Fest a couple of years ago... and Portsmouth is further than you think, after a few beers anyway
Welcome to the Eastleigh Boyz and their hazardous journey home each year - provided they can work out how their bike locks work, that is...
