6th - 15th October 2023


To celebrate the unique and vibrant craft and independent beer scene in Southampton, we are pleased to launch our very first Southampton Independent Beer Week between the 6th and 15th October 2024.

This week will be a showcase of the independent beer scene in the city, with the venues across the city running a range of mainly free events including tap takeovers, live music, beer tastings, beer and food pairings, quizzes, food, new independent beers, alongside the chance to visit the micropubs, pubs, breweries and venues to experience what is on offer in the city day in and day out across the year.

Taking centre stage in the beer week we have a range of the best Southampton based micro’s, pubs, bars, and breweries including Olaf’s Tun, Dancing Man, Unity Brewing, Belgium and Blues, Beard and Boards, Good Libations, The Bookshop Alehouse, The Butcher’s Hook, The Guide Dog, Overdraft, 6 Barrels, The Dusty Barrel, and Steam Town Brew Co.

Each venue will be holding events through the week of different days, such as The Bookshop Alehouse’s Dark Revolution tap takeover and quiz nights, Olaf’s Tun’s cheese pairing ‘battle royal’ and Hand tap take over, and Good Libation’s Wild Beer Master Class and Beak Brewery tasting.

We look forward to welcoming you to experience the independent craft beer scene in Southampton for what we hope to be the first of an annual festival.
