ABV Beer Festival

Belfast's unique craft beer festival returns for a second year, promising excitement and a great beer selection

Festival Details


Thursday, 01 September 2016 to Saturday, 03 September 2016



ABV Fest takes place September 1 - 3 and brings exceptional beer to an inspirational venue — the striking Victorian surrounds of Carlisle Memorial Church. It promises even more beer excitement this year with five individual sessions over three days and many, many great beers.

ABV Fest came about initially through the belief of the organisers that people in Northern Ireland were looking for an innovative beer festival, where the vast range of beer styles available could be showcased. At the heart of Michael Kerr, Felicia Matheson and Darren Nugent's vision for ABV16 is a festival where great beer is sipped and shared, and where not drinking the same thing twice is to be encouraged.
