2020 Beer list
We have had to cancel our beer and cider orders for April due to thje postponement, and of course we hope top have the same great selection of beers and ciders and perries for August 2020. We appreciate that many suppliers, both large and small may have difficulies with the imposed self isolation and distancing and will work with them to give the best selection possible in August. We plan to announce our Beer and Cider choices for August in the first week of August once firm orders have been confirmed as available still giving you plenty of time to plan your session/s. We can tell you that there will now not be a special St. Georges Day Ale and a St. Georges Day Cider but maybe, just maybe, there will be something more summery! And our themed bar this year which was to feature ‘Yorkshire Breweries’ of which we had ninety-two to choose from, well we will have to wait and see what we cabn source.
In the meantime ……………….
Did you know that at the first Beerex in 1977 there were just 24 Breweries represented?
They were: Adnams, Arkell, Bass Charrington, Brakespear, Courage, Davenports, Donnington, Eldridge Pope, Fullers, Gales, Gibbs Mew, Hall & Woodhouse, Hook Norton, Ind Coope, Marstons, Moreland, Morell’s, Paine, Ridley’s, Samuel Smith, Shepherd Neame, Theakston’s, Wadworth and Whitbread.
Sadly, only a handful of these famous breweries still survive. To date, 468 breweries have had their beers displayed at Beerex. Last year the Hog Backs Brewery equalled the record previously held by Donnington for the most appearances; each at 25. Others in the top ten included Hook Norton, Exmoor, Harveys, Hop Back, Cotleigh, Hardy & Hanson and Ringwood. Check back to see the full list for 2020 as soon as our beer committee have worked through their options.

We were delighted to announce that the Vibrant Forest Brewery, located on the edge of the New Forest, CYDONIA was chosen as the BEER of the FARNHAM BEEREX FESTIVAL 2016. http://
At the end of July 2016, a great day out was had by the 4 intrepid folk who ventured forth into deepest Lymington in the New Forest. Andy Gilbert, Chair of the beer committee reported "We made the presentation in front of the very nice bar in the brewery which had no less than 10 beers for us to sample." Kevin was very pleased to receive the award for Cydonia and has now won awards across his beer range showing the depth of his brewing prowess. Kevin started the brewery in 2011 in his garage and moved into the current location after quitting his job in 2014 and is going from strength to strength having just added 2 more fermenting vessels to cope with demand."
