13th SIBA SE Beer Festival

5th  & 6th July 2019

Summer fun at the Beer Festival !!

Another year has flown by and the countdown has begun for the SIBA South East Beer Festival, this being the 13th in the series, and growing bigger every year. Back by popular demand at Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Club (TJs) the festival features over 180 cask ales in various categories from the South East’s finest independent brewers.


Following the SIBA competition taking place on the Friday you can find out which of the beers has been chosen as Overall Champion and pit your taste buds against the judges, by checking if you agree with their choices in each category. Whether new to real ale or a seasoned aficionado you will find plenty of choice of ales to try, some hopefully for the first time (come on you Tickers !!).


The full Beer List can be viewed here




This year there will be an even wider range of Ciders & Perrys for you to try and hopefully we won’t sell out too soon again (you insatiable apple quaffers, you J ). Pop over and see our own Scrumpy Bill and try one of his delectable “Apples & Pears” cocktails. Soft drinks and food will be available at all sessions, with Big Event Co. manning the B-B-Q all weekend.


Entry is FREE and all beers are purchased with Tokens (1/2 pint tokens @ £1.80 each), with all beers & ciders at one price of £3.60 per pint. The souvenir festival glass will cost you £2 and, as it’s yours to keep, it can make a great addition to your collection or double as a handy vase !


The club is located in the centre of Tonbridge and just off the High Street, about a 10 minute walk from the railway station. Full directions on how to find us can be found in the right hand border of this webpage. Opening times are as follows:


Friday 5th July 2019 / 17:00 to 23:00

Saturday 6th July 2019 / 12:00 to 23:00


The “Music Lounge” will be filled with the delightful sounds of the Acoustic Reverb Collection, introducing the finest young musicians for your entertainment on Saturday. No finer way to while away a few hours than sitting in the sun and sipping a beer or two watching these great performers at work.



The Festival is held in a spacious marquee on the rugby club pitches, with all of the clubhouse facilities available. If we are blessed with good weather there is plenty of space to stretch out on the grass, picnic and enjoy the family friendly atmosphere. But if it gets a bit chilly (in July surely that can’t happen ... ?) there’s ample room in the marquee if we’re driven indoors.


Put the dates in your diary, round-up a few friends and head on down to TJs for a warm welcome and the finest beers from the region’s best brewers. Check out our Facebook page @TJsBeerFest for all the latest news.
