London Beer City!

London Beer City!

The inaugural London Beer City (9-16 August) will launch this Saturday with a flurry of dinners, festivals, live brews, talks, tours, tap takeovers and tastings. From Carshalton in the South to Barnet in the north and from Windsor in the West to Stratford in the East, there will be events within easy reach of most Londoners. The majority of the city’s brewers are taking  part, with many of them opening their breweries to the public during the week. It’s set to be a great week for beer-lovers, with the  Great British Beer Festival –  the world’s biggest cask-ale event – taking place at Olympia. The schedule will have drinkers salivating. The Kernel and Fourpure, two of the city’s most respected brewers,  will be opening up their homes to punters for one night only. Camden Town have a number of events planned, including a beer-and-food matching dinner at Caravan in King’s Cross and a mobile bar that will pop  up across the city during the week. Beavertown have a musical spectacular planned for their Tottenham home. “London truly is a Beer City with a rich heritage in cask ale, and it’s now home to some of the most exciting world-class new breweries,” says Fourpure’s Dan Lowe. “The upcoming celebration of this incredibly diverse  brewing scene is something Fourpure is really excited about being involved in.” But it’s not just about London-brewed beer. The likes of Windsor & Eton and Siren, both based to the west of the capital, have multiple  events planned. One of the most interesting is the latter’s event at the Earl of Essex in Islington on Monday 11, when members of the public are invited to bring ingredients along to help in a live brew. There will be beer from further afield, too, with The Euston Tap running a Czech beer festival all week  and the London Craft Beer Festival – which takes place at The Oval Space in Bethnal Green – featuring beers from Sierra Nevada and Founder’s, two hugely revered American breweries. Expect plenty of strong opinion. James Watt, co-founder of Brewdog, will be discussing the evolution of British craft beer at his company’s bar in  Shepherd’s Bush. Pete Brown will be delivering his talk on beer and music matching not once but  twice, at the Bull in Highgate and the King’s Arms in Bethnal Green. Melissa Cole, one of the beer  world’s most respected communicators, will be explaining how to get the most out of the drink. “The point of the festival is to remind Londoners that good beer is closer at hand than they might  think,” says event organiser Will Hawkes. “London’s historic brewing and beer-drinking  tradition has been revived over the past few years – we want to celebrate that.” Londonbeercity.com @londonbeercity facebook.com/londonbeercity
