A fantastic festival, both for UK cask ales and foreign beers. I really enjoy going to this festival and can recommend it to anyone. Yes, they cater for the masses in some ways, but there is always something, even for the most seasoned of tickers!

The place had everything I would want at a beer festival, namely big space and toilets. Given the huge crowds at the fest I think the Earls Court handled the mayhem pretty well. I never saw any incidents and the atmosphere was pretty much always jovial. I guess it got pretty noisy, but as I reflect on my time spent at GBBF in Earls Court I only remember spending time with good people and drinking lots and lots of beer. It will be interesting to see how Olympia fares as the new venue.

Noizy and crowdy. Not easy to find a place to sit if you are coming an our or two after opening hours. Great beer selection, but not always a great beer. Now and then you will go for a bottle just to be sure you get a real taste :-) Lot of nice people and some good tutored tastings. You need to be there for a while to get the whole picture. Been at Earls Court three times. Looking forward to visit Olympia

Lots of beers. Possible to sit down and relax while drinking. Large and noizy. Atmospheric . . Lots of tics and friendly people.

So big that everything is hit and miss. A few constants: You WILL get a lot of ticks (if you want). You WILL get a beer in terrible condition. You WILL eat pork scratchings. You WILL hate all those noisy people. You WILL love the plentyful seating. You WILL visit the foreign beer bar when you get tired of diacetyl bombs.

Well, Olympia will be different, so this review isnít relevant any more. Noisy and sweaty. But you canít fauly the selection. You can fault boring brewers for brewing yet another boring bitter, though. Nosh is pucker. Beers are cheap, but entry isnít.

An annual event in the first week of August. This year (2011) was the last at Earls Court as from next year it will return to itís old venue of Olympia. Well worth a visit if you are in London during the first week of August.
