Beer Central Festival 2022: When is it, which breweries will be attending, and how can I get tickets?

Following a sell-out event last year Beer Central Festival is back for 2022.

Beer fans will be able to sample drinks from more than 30 different brewers when the festival returns to Digbeth on September 16 and 17.

You will also be able to sample different ciders as well as non-alcoholic tipples, and revellers will also be able to grab a bite to eat from the festival’s own food market.
