Ale connoisseurs and lager lovers rejoice – next week (16 -22 February) marks the annual London beer week! LBW have teamed up with Craft Beer Rising to celebrate everything beer, from craft producers to great brands, ales and lagers and even cider.
The week aims to offer a plethora of events showing off the impressive London beer scene. From beer tours, tasting seminars, buzzing new pop-ups, to well-established pubs renowned for providing the cream of the crop in the beer world – all offering discounted prices on a special beer.
How can you get involved? Wristbands to access the festival cost £10 and will give you discounts on sampling a variety of beers, ales and ciders throughout the week. The wristband also allows you to take part in the beer tours, stretching from Soho to Shoreditch and Camden to Clapham, making regular pit stops along the way to quench your thirst at the handpicked bars and pubs.
To buy or collect your wristband, head to the main hub of London Beer Week, situated in a pop-up beer bar off Carnaby Street. Head to the bustling hub for all the information you’ll need about making the most of this beer-filled week of fun and pick up a free guide book to help you on your way.
For the festival lovers amongst us, the fun doesn’t have to stop at beer. Craft Beer Rising at the Truman Brewery are laying on even more brewers, live music sessions and delicious street food to get the pre-festival season vibes flowing as much as the amber nectar.
There’s something for every taste and every pocket so don’t miss out on the beer-fuelled fun. Be sure to visit Peppermint Bar’s very own pop-up, The Tasting Room. Just next to Liverpool Street station and in association with Broadgate Ice Rink for a hearty street food inspired menu and an even bigger range of craft ales, from London’s finest breweries, an eclectic wine selection, and winter classics including spiced buttered rum and mulled cider.
