It feels a pretty long time ago that the breadth of beers available in the UK comprised of European lagers, British bitters and pretty much nothing in between.

In fact, when you consider just how much great beer is at our collective fingertips in 2022, it seems crazy the craft-beer revolution, as it’s often termed, only exploded into life a decade ago.

But explode it did, and in addition to the brewers themselves, it’s event organisers like the London Craft Beer Festival we’ve got to thank for pushing the movement forward and, over time, shaping an audience of drinkers eager to enter a world of discovery when it comes to beer.

The festival’s August event has become a fixture of the summer calendar – recognised by many as the biggest and best beer event out there, and drawing visitors and brewers from London, the UK and beyond.

But we all know there’s no better time to get together with mates for a drink than the lead-up to Christmas, and it’s for that reason we’re incredibly excited for to the inaugural London Christmas Beer Festival in mid-December this year.

What's more, as a partner of the event we're offering you a fiver off your ticket. See below for details.

What's on

Just like the summer edition, you can expect free pours from some of the world’s best breweries – Wiper & True, Partizan, Amundsen and Mondo among them – plus a great selection of cider and spirits, street food and entertainment, and shopping opportunities galore, plus thought-provoking talks and Q&As from special guests (including, er, us). See you there.
