Welcome to the Warwick University Real Ale Society, organisers of the largest student beer festival in the country!
The 37th Warwick University Real Ale Festival is almost here
IT’S BACK! The greatest event to grace the Copper Rooms returns for its 37th year and promises to be bigger, better and with more beer than ever. So mark Thursday 18th February to Saturday 20th February (Week 6) in your diaries. That’s right, it’s the Warwick University Real Ale Festival
Boasting 120 British beers from the Orkneys to the South Coast and all places in between, it’s more than enough to keep any man, woman or child with a fake ID entertained. So consider our selection of over 50 ciders, fruit wines and world beers an added bonus. Add onto that entertainment in the form of the outrageous folk stylings of Dr Busker and local favourites Jabba Cartel, plus sets from our very own Warwick Big Band and Warwick Folk and by this point we’re just spoiling you.
Food will again be provided by Lazy Pig, who will be serving up hog roasts, pork rolls and vegetarian sausages. And for all you teetotalers and designated drivers, we haven’t forgotten about you. We’ve got a fully stocked Soft Drinks Bar plus non-alcoholic beers.
So come along for good beer, good company and what’s sure to be the highlight of the SU calendar!
6pm – Late each night.
£3.50 entry, cash only.
Free entry to CAMRA members on Saturday.
Socials and Trips
Can’t wait till next year? Why not join us on one of our socials?
We welcome anybody to our socials and events. If you’re interested in great beer and cider, you’re in for a treat.
We hold socials every two weeks, where we check out a selection of Local Pubs, and enjoy the ales they have available. Our social sec usually plans these affairs and you can find details on the website, our Facebook page and our mailing list. Socials start on campus, so it is easy for the freshers to find us, and then we move on to the pubs of the evening.
On top of the socials, there are also a variety of trips throughout the year. Mostly ale festivals across the country and brewery tours from our sponsors. These trips are always great fun and once the next one is planned, do not miss out on an opportunity to come along and join us for the ride. Of course there is also our end of year tour, considered to be the best trip of the year. Last year we went to Riga at the end of Term 3 which was an amazing few days for everyone involved. If you want to go on tour with us, then get involved in the society and help out at the festival as well.
