Cambolicious is a small, family orientated festival showcasing the best in Scottish craft beer and cider. Started in November 2012 by Struan Erskine, the current steward of Cambo and Tom Graham, ale enthusiast and pro brewer, Cambolicious filled a gaping, beerfest shaped void in the annual East Neuk event calendar. Since then Cambolicious has evolved into more than just a beer festival but into a celebration of local music, local food & drink and games.
Due to the popularity of our first Cambolicious and by popular suggestion we have taken it upon ourselves to bring you a Summer Cambolicious, normally in May (27 April 2019) as well as a Winter Cambolicious in November. Cambolicious is held in the Courtyard and out buildings at Cambo house where the core of the festival is protected from the elements. In the summer it spills out onto the lawns which are used to their full gaming potential. In the winter we pull into the shelter of the courtyard. It is our belief that nothing makes beer taste better than light competition.
Here are some of the staples you can expect:
-Scottish Cider, Gins and cask conditioned Ales
-Live Music from the Dreel players
-Loads of great games including shuffleboard, cornhole, ladder golf and table tennis
-Free face painting
-Free Axe throwing
