BrewLDN, 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’s 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 two trade sessions and four public 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 trade element of the festival will welcome 70 trade exhibitors – an increase of 50 from last year – to The Press Halls.  This unique space spans 2000m², allowing plenty of room for suppliers to industry and trade to showcase their businesses and offers easy access for all.

Also new for 2021, BrewLDN will have a huge outdoor food arena offering a wealth of street food traders plus an outdoor beer terrace for (hopefully!) sunshine drinking. The vital brewing and beer industry talks will be expanded for 2021, with a new conference format and specially dedicated arena offering up an extensive programme that covers innovation, tastings, future trends and much more, all with a diverse range of experts in their field.

“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.” Jack Fallon, BrewLDN

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: 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.

Trade and exhibitor registration is now open; For more information on trade ticket accreditation or exhibiting as a producer or supplier to the industry please head to:

To support new and independent businesses, brewers producing under 30,000 hector litres will be entitled to a reduction of £500 on their pitch.
