Cotswold Beer Festival
Shortly after CAMRA Gloucestershire came into being in 1975, we started looking for a suitable site to hold a beer festival. We considered various venues, including both the Town Hall and the racecourse in Cheltenham, but everything seemed either impracticable or too expensive. Then we heard about the Postlip Community (a work colleague of our then chairman was a member of the community). After some initial discussions we agreed to go ahead with a festival in Postlip Tithe Barn in July 1977. And so this unique event was born.
