The 21st Battersea Beer Festival was organised by the South West London branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The festival ran over three days from Wednesday 9 - Friday 11 February 2011, opening from 12.00 - 23.00 each day.

Everyone was welcome, you didn’t have to be a CAMRA member to attend.

Some 177 real ales from all over Britain were available during the festival as well as ciders & perries and a good selection of bottled and draught foreign beers.

Hot and cold food was available at each session.

Entry to the festival cost £3 (£2 before 17.00 on Wednesday) with current CAMRA members receiving a £1 discount on Wednesday and Thursday.
