As well as the limited edition Ale FC Wimbledon pint glass, plastic glasses will be available throughout the day. No glassware will be allowed to leave the beer festival vicinity until after the match on Saturday. As you cannot take your glass into the stadium for the game, return it to us and you'll be given a token. At half-time and after the game you will be able to exchange your token back for a pint glass.
In addition to our regular caterers, Hans Wurst will be providing a selection of traditional, authentic and delicious German street food to really compliment the ales.
