The second week of August looks set to test the mettle even the hardiest of beer drinkers. While West London sees the return of the Great British Beer Festival the East End welcomes its younger, dare we say slightly hipper, counterpart – the London Craft Beer Festival.
Taking place in Bethnal Green’s Oval Space, the London Craft Beer Festival sets out to celebrate the very best of Britain’s independent brewing industry by hosting eighteen of the country’s finest brewers including The Kernel Brewery, Redemption, Camden Town Brewery, BrewDog and Redchurch Brewery, who’ll collectively present 60 superb beers for your delectation. Small glasses are the order of the day, giving you a chance to try as many different beers as possible – all covered by the entrance price.
It’s a great chance to sample the finest tipples currently emerging from Britain’s rejuvenated brewing industry accompanied by an excellent live music line-up that includes DJ Yoda, Ghostpoet and Artful Dodger.
