Drinking beer at a festival can mean unrivalled misery, with lager companies enjoying a monopoly on the beer tents and pumping out plastic pints of unsatisfying suds at about a five a go. Glastonbury is no ordinary festival though, so if it’s your first time get onto this guide of which beers you can enjoy and where.
Bath Gem Amber Ale
Often renamed as Pyramid for the length of the festival, this is one of the most ubiquitous beers at Glastonbury. You can find it in most of the bars on site.
Otter Brewery have renamed their original 4.5% ale in honour of the legendary Glastonbury Stage. You can find this at the Cockmill along with 14 other West Country ales.
Proper Job and Tribute
St Austell brewery are representing in the Cornish Arms beer tent with their Cornish IPA Proper Job and Tribute Cornish Pale Ale. To reach the Cornish Arms, walk out of the Bread and Roses, left towards the Other stage and keep on that road.
Arbor Triple Hop
Cascade, Chinook and Galaxy make up this popular beer from Bristol’s Arbor Beers. you can find it in the Cockmill Bar.
Another one for the Cockmill Bar, Marston’s Exception Pale Ale is a nice light pint at 3.5% for those who want to pace themselves, and to be honest that’s probably a good idea.
Happy Drinking festival goers!
