Sometimes craft brewing doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
You can even slip the ingredients right into a sentence and people barley notice.
So setting out to remedy this is the London Craft Beer Festival, and – now in its tenth year – they’re rolling out their biggest, baddest line-up yet to celebrate.
They’ve gathered a crowd of over 100 breweries, both established and on the rise, from across the world, and planted them inside the old Tobacco Dock warehouses in Wapping. Inside you’ll find visitors like the Basqueland Brewing Project, founded by three Americans just outside of San Sebastian; boundary-pushing ales from NYC’s GRIMM; and Norway’s Lervig, a project founded after the townspeople literally revolted when a big label took over their town brewery and produced what they perceived to be substandard beer.
There’ll be plenty visiting breweries from around the UK, too, including Somerset’s Yonder Brewing & Blending, and Vault City down from Edinburgh, and of course, a solid London contingent represented by the likes of Pressure Drop, Hackney Church Brew Co. and Five Points. Each will have their finest and most unusual beers on tap – and, since the organisers are sensible folk, you’ll be able to try as much as you want, from as many traders as you want.
Plus, interspersed with these breweries you’ll also find DJ decks manned by DJ Yoda, Beardyman and Greg Wilson; aaand a food offering that’ll see a ridiculously hot set of eateries like Decatur, Tacos Padre, Tendril and 10 Greek Street all pitching up to hustle their sweet, tasty wares.
NOTE: The London Craft Beer Festival 2022 takes place at Tobacco Dock on 12th & 13th August. Tickets start at £47.50 including all the beer you want, and can be purchased online HERE.
