Just over a week from now, we are rocking the biggest multi-venue beer festival in our history. With more breweries and more beer produced with more of our epic BrewDog Bar crews than ever – Collabfest is back.

For its sixth anniversary we are involving fifty-three craft breweries from Milton Keynes to Tokyo. And to give you a chance to try as many of their beers as possible #Collabfest2018 will take place over four days (Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st October).

In case you’re unfamiliar, each year our amazing bar crews team up with a craft brewery to design and brew a one-off beer – and then on a single long weekend we pour all of them across our network of bars in the largest collaborative multi-venue event that we know of.

For 2018 all UK and European BrewDog Bars will be sharing the amazing brews. That means if you head to your local BrewDog Bar between the 18th and 21st you could enjoy over FIFTY brand new, unique beers. How does that sound? Well let’s make it even sweeter by revealing all of the bar/brewery combinations for this year! Maybe put the kettle on first. (or grab a beer)

Last year we rocked 34 collaborative brews for our annual festival – with over 50 in 2018 we have raised the bar to a whole new level. We love the fact that it gives you guys a chance to sample so many new and fascinating beers, but we love even more that our hard-working bar crews get to spend a day working with an epic brewery and learning even more than they already did about craft beer.

And there are plenty of different beers that resulted, take it from us.

#Collabfest2018 is set to take place in every BrewDog Bar (with the exception of DogTap and our bars in the United States) Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st October. We will return before then with another blog post – likely the start of that week – detailing each of the beers that you will be enjoying. Until then if there’s a bar/brewery pairing you are particularly looking forward to, let us know in the comments below!

Collabfest just keeps getting better and better, over 50 beers this year.
Again some great names - too many to list, but I will mention Black Iris, Fallen and the mighty Wylam.
Shame there is no Northern Monk or Magic Rock, but you can't have everything.
Looking forward to trying the Internationals this year, and it's the same weekend as Nottingham Beer festival with over 1000 different beers, so my liver will be well and truly battered ....

Anonymous - Eagle Eyes! I have added those two combos in now. Thanks :)

Anything by Burnt Mill is always very good. So their beer alongside Brewdog Norwich I’m really looking forward to. I’ve just discovered Wilde Child so their collaboration with Brewdog Leeds I’m sure will be good as well.

50+ beers though and only 4 days... going to be a fun challenge.

BrewDog Bar São Paulo have already shared a few photos of them making their beer with Seasons. No idea what it is though and so can't wait to check it out on the 18th :)

Don’t forget Edinburgh Lothian Road and Milton Keynes in your list.

I can't wait! Last year was so good, and this year looks set to be even better!

I thought 30-odd collaborations last year was impressive... but over 50 is something else! Awesome work!
