Brew//LDN, the UK’s biggest craft beer festival, is set for a welcome return in 2021. Running a little later in the year than usual from Thursday 20th May to Saturday 22nd May, the improved and expanded festival will take over a much larger venue in London’s iconic Printworks with 250 exhibitor stands, 150 independent breweries, a vast outdoor street food arena and more than 1000 different beers.
The new venue allows for an expanded offering that will make use of Printworks’ vast Press Halls space as well as the indoor and outdoor Container Yard areas packed with beers, bites, brew talks and more. The three day event includes four public sessions and two trade sessions with the 250 exhibitor stands showcasing 150 independent breweries and 1000 different beers; there will be capacity for over 10,000 attendees across the three days. The first wave of brewery announcements include; Yonder Brewing and Blending, The Five Points Brewing Co., Tiny Rebel, Brewpoint, Toast, Black Storm Brewery, Don Valley Brewery, Pulpt Cider, Flowerhorn Brewery, Vocation Brewery, Full Circle Brew Co, Firebrand Brewing Co. and UnBarred Brewery.
Also new for 2021, Brew//LDN will have a huge outdoor food arena offering a wealth of street food traders plus an outdoor beer terrace for (hopefully!) sunshine drinking. Previous years’ food treats have included La Nonna, Brigadiers, Claw, Biff’s Jack Shack, Kolkati and Eat Chay so expect more of the UK’s finest food traders for this edition. The full DJ lineup will be revealed soon but for now Demi Riquisimo, Medlar, RAW SILK, The Reflex and WOLF Music will be laying down the vibes.
Brew//LDN’s Covid-19 policy and regulations will be updated regularly in line with developing UK Government guidelines, but careful thought has gone into making these events as safe and atmospheric as possible for all in attendance. It’s hoped that Brew//LDN 2021 will be able to operate without social distancing in place but organisers are also fully prepared to operate the festival with social distancing in place should that be required. The extra space at Printworks allows for that scenario comfortably while maintaining the high quality Brew//LDN experience that customers are accustomed to. Expect additional space, transport options and availability of outdoor and indoor seating so customers can really relax and discover fine brews, whatever the regulations in May 2021.
Tickets for BrewLDN 2021 are on sale now at brewldn.com and start at £13.50 (inc. booking fee). Tickets include a BrewLDN festival glass and festival magazine.

Covid-19: We will be able to run the festival without limiting the content or diminishing customer experience should social distancing restrictions still be required by May 2021.
Jack Fallon, BrewLDN Co-Founder; “The move to Printworks from the Old Truman Brewery will enable us to continue in our mission to host an independent beer festival for trade and consumers alike, still showcasing the world’s best brewers, quality street food and a fantastic music programme. The spacious layout at Printworks allows us to easily absorb all the elements of responsible event planning in 2021 as well as expanding our trade conference and supporting the next generation of beer businesses which would not have been possible at our previous home. Meticulous contingency planning ensures that we will be able to run the festival without limiting the content or diminishing customer experience should social distancing restrictions still be required by May 2021. Join us for the best BrewLDN to date.”
