Beers At Beddington Farm: Anspach & Hobday Announce Their First Beer Festival

Independent London craft brewery Anspach & Hobday have announced the launch of their first festival, Beddington Farm Beer Festival.

Beddington Farm Beer Festival will be a community-focused event where beer from some of the UK’s very best breweries will be served, bringing first class beer and enjoyment to locals and visitors to Croydon alike.

Tickets are priced at £12 with the cost of the ticket translating directly into beer tokens to be used. The token-pound ratio is 1:1 and more tokens will be available to purchase at the main bar. Tickets are available here.

There will be a cocktail pop-up courtesy of our bar The Pigeon, Cider by our very own Claire’s Veer Van and food from The Croydon Taproom’s resident food vendor Dirty Crunch. Festival games will be held too, including cornhole and a coconut shy using Anspach & Hobday cans.

For updates on the festival, please follow us on Instagram and Twitter.

Brewery Line-Up – More Announcing Soon!

Head of Production and Co-Founder Paul Anspach says: “Our aim with the festival is capture a little bit of the breadth and depth of the UK brewing scene and bring it to our corner of Croydon. Whilst some names are bigger than others, each brewery brings something different and exciting, and we are incredibly proud to be sharing our taproom with all of them.

We have worked with some of these breweries for many years, whilst others are relatively new to us. In either case we can not wait to throw open the doors to our taproom and share all their fantastic beers with the good people of Croydon.

Furthermore we are incredibly excited to be bringing The Pigeon (our Camberwell bar) to the festival. After all, it’s long been said (mostly by us) that Peter and the team make the best Negroni in town.”

Chairman and Co-Founder Jack Hobday says: “With restrictions lifting, it is just wonderful to be able to have a proper community-led celebration of craft brewing. It is going to be a fun day for all and a great day for beer! Already, tickets are flying out (we’ve sold nearly half!) and we’re really hoping we can set the foundations for a yearly staple in the beer Calendar.”
