Fancy a pint… or three: ‘Hop’ on down to London Beer Week
Following the success of London Wine Week and London Cocktail Week, it is only fair that beer fans get some love too. From Drink Up London, the inaugural London Beer Week comes to the capital in February, a celebration of craft beers, ales, lagers and ciders.
London Beer Week will see bars and restaurants across the capital hosting offers, tastings, workshops, masterclasses and talks on all things beer related from 16-22 February. The main hub during LBW will be 14 Newburgh Street in Soho, where people can pick up their wristbands so they can make the most of the offers, as well as sample nice and new craft beers. There will also be the opportunity to meet the team behind Cornish brewer Sharp’s, whose brew has been voted the World’s Best Lager.
The Carnaby and Newburgh quarter in Soho has lots of venues taking part in LBW, including Two Floors, The White Horse, Whyte & Brown, Wright Brothers, Kua ‘Aina, Shoryu, Señor Ceviche and Carnaby Cocktail Co. Local stores are also getting in on the action on Wednesday 18 February, with Dr Marten’s, Lomography and AQAQ Man, among others, offering tasters of their favourite beer brands to shoppers.
- London Beer Week runs from 16-22 February 2015. To have access to the special deals of £3 speciality beers or £5 boilermakers in over 100 of the best beer bars, all you need is a £10 wristband. For more information and to purchase your wristband, visit the Carnaby website or London Beer Week website.
