With less than a week to go, we’ve put together a list of our most frequently asked questions. If you have a question that’s not been answered, please email and we’ll aim to respond to you as quickly as possible.

I’ve ordered tickets, but not received them. What should I do?

We are aware of circumstances where some individuals have not received confirmation of their order. Don’t worry, your name will be on the door and our front of house staff will be able to provide you with your wristbands on arrival. We aim to email all ticket holders directly, with details 72 hours prior to the event.

I love the idea of the event, but its not the best location. How can I get back and fourth over the weekend?

The Yard at the Sausage Revolution is an ideal location for this event, but we appreciate it’s not typically where you’d go for a few drinks. We’ve partnered with new taxi company Vale Taxis to make your journey to and from the event as easy as possible. Simply book a taxi with them to the event at your own time and when it comes to closing up, there will be a number of taxis to help get you home, to a train station or to continue your night.

What times do you open and close each day?

On Friday 15th, we’ll open our doors at 4pm, with final orders at 10pm and event close at 10:30pm.

On Saturday 16th, we’ll open our doors at 12pm, with final final orders at 10pm and event close at 10:30pm.

On Sunday 17th, we’ll open our doors at 12pm, with final final orders at 8:30pm and event close at 9pm.

What beers will you be serving?

We’ve partnered with VOG Brewery, to help us serve some of the best beers produced by breweries right across South Wales. Whilst we can’t share the full list, we’ll have 20 beers on tap from Bragdy Twt Lol, Bluestone Brewing, Coach Brewing Co, Flowerhorn Brewery, Tenby Brewing Co, Tinworks Brewing, Tiny Rebel, Tomos & Lilford and VOG Bewery.

I know its a beer festival, but will you be serving other drinks?

We know not everyone is a beer lover. For that reason, we’re serving 15 different gins and mixers on our gin bar and 8 ciders to quench your thirst. We’ll also be stocking 4 low alcoholic Drop Bear Beers.

In addition, our partners The Yard Events will be serving a range of lagers and other spirits, next to our Gin Bar.

How much will drinks cost?

To help us serve you as quickly as possible, we’ll be utilising a token system at the event.

Tokens are £2.50 each or 8 for £20, 13 for £30 or 18 for £40. All tokens are non-refundable.

1/2 a pint is 1 token, while a pint is 2 tokens. Non-alcoholic beers are 2 tokens each.

A single gin is 2 tokens, whilst a double is 3 tokens.

A number of other drinks will be available via The Sausage Revolution bar.

I’m not much of a drinker. Do you have anything non alcoholic?

We’re stocking 4 low alcoholic beers from Swansea based Drop Bear. They might be low alcoholic, but they pack a punch when it comes to flavour. They’re just as good as any other beers.

Will you have entertainment on during the event?

We’re delighted to have a weekend full of live music for attendees to enjoy. Local performers Jodana Weekly and Matt Blumberg will be performing on Friday 15th from 7pm, whilst on Saturday 16th Me+Him will play at 4pm, prior to Wales Rugby World cup fixture against Portugal, wrapped up by Beer Festival Favourites 12Bore, who’ll get you dancing. On Sunday 17th, its chilled out vibes all day with High Mileage playing rock, blues and funk from 7pm.

What food will be available during the weekend?

We know you can’t drink on an empty stomach. The Sausage Revolution will be serving a range of their most popular dishes whilst the event is open. They’ll also be serving breakfasts each morning, which you can enjoy prior to gates opening within the main building.

Can I purchase tickets on the doors?

There will be a limited number of tickets available to purchase on the door each night. Tickets are limited for Saturday night, so we would advise to purchase in advance where possible.

Is the event dog friendly?

Whilst the event isn’t officially open to dogs, we will allow dogs to attend should you wish. With the Saturday expected to be fairly busy, we’d advise owners not to bring their dog, especially during the evening.

Are children allowed to attend the event?

This event is over 18 only. No children will be allowed to enter the event, under any circumstances.

What local good causes will you be supporting?

This event aims to raise funds for registered charity Barry Round Table, which distributes monies raised via events to local good causes within the Town. Whilst we can’t say specifically what good causes the event will support, we are proud to be launching a Cheers Fund at the event, which will see 10 x £100 donations distributed within weeks of the event. Applications will be open via this website.

Who runs the Barry Beer Festival?

The Barry Beer Festival is organised and run by Barry Round Table. A young men’s group, part of the national association of Round Tables. The group brings together young men aged 18 to 45, to socialise, learn new skills, support local good causes and do more in the local community.

How can I join Barry Round Table?
