Preparations for the 2017 event are well under way and it promises to be even better than last year.

We now have the 2017 programmes which you can buy here and we have finalised the 2017 route map.

We also have this years bus list. To save you counting - there are 101 buses!

See what beers were available last year.

Here are a couple of frequently asked questions:-
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: This is at the descretion of the drivers, but generally - Yes, clean, well behaved dogs are welcome to travel on the buses
Q: How can I avoid queuing?
A: Try to avoid busy times. Last year Saturday lunchtime was particularly busy with all our relief buses working flat out. We would also recommend that you have a plan B. Maybe take advantage of the Southern Vectis Rover Ticket Deal .
Incidentally we are sorry to all those that could not catch the buses that they wanted as they were full.
(Too many passengers and not enough buses! - neither of which we can do much about)
Nevertheless, judging from the comment cards plus those on Facebook and Twitter most of you had a really good weekend.

Wightlink Offer Wightlink Ferries have a limited offer for our event - 20% off all routes to the Island between Friday 13th and Monday 16th October 2017 for foot passengers, cars and motor cycles. More details and t&c's

This year (2017) we are pleased to be part of Visit Isle of Wight Travel Ambassador's Green Star Scheme which encourages car-free holidays on the Isle of Wight. As they say - "Drive less, see more!"

As well as of offering advice on travelling to the Island, there are Green Star suggestions of what to do while you're here. Why not get off the bus and explore. See the "getting here" page for more details.

World Leisure have come up with a great range of IW Beer & Buses clothing CLICK HERE to view.
