Paisley Beer Festival is a beer festival organised and run by the Renfrewshire branch of CAMRA and has been held in Paisley Town hall since 1986 (with a couple of exceptions!).

D3S 9889

This year's festival is our 30th Anniversary and, as a happy coincidence, it is also the 30th Anniversary of St Mirren winning the Scottish Cup on the 16th of May 1987

Anyone who attended the Saturday session of the beer festival on the 16th May 1987 will have very fond memories of the team arriving back to the Town Hall by open top bus and showing off the trophy from the upstairs balcony to the crowd of thousands standing outside

The festival will see over 250 beers from breweries in Scotland and the rest of the UK, covering a range of styles from pale hoppy ales through to darker stouts and porters. Whatever your taste, there will be a real ale for everyone.

And if real ale is not your thing, we also have a foreign beer bar bringing you beers from right across the globe along with our real cider bar and a wine bar.

The festival will run from 17:00 on Wednesday 19th April through to last orders on Saturday 22nd April with admission prices being £4 for CAMRA members and £6 for non-members. A commemorative Paisley Beer Festival beer glass is included in the admission price.
