Heist Bank Beer Festival runs from 12th 14th October. Heist Bank will be cracking open the keg, turning on the taps and pouring pints for the second annual Heist Bank Beer Festival. Following a hugely successful inaugural year in 2017, the Heist Bank Beer Festival is returning to the Paddington bar with a carnival of cask and keg festivities.

This October, Heist Bank Beer Festival will have over 60 beers on tap, showcasing breweries from across the U.K., Scandinavia and Australasia, with 80+ beers being poured across the weekend. The resident beer geeks at Heist Bank have curated a well-balanced list of their favourite brews across a range of styles to ensure that all thirsts are quenched. Whether drinkers prefer fruity ales, unusual stouts, or bold cask beers, the Heist Bank Beer Festival will have something new for the curious beer-lover to try.

Three top breweries Fourpure, Siren and Wild Beer Co. will be taking over the bar’s twelve taps across the weekend and will be launching special seasonal releases and exclusive collaborative brews. The weekend will also include hands-on workshops taking place in the ‘Games Room’ featuring the likes of beer and cheese pairings, beer games, non-alcoholic beer sampling and beer yoga.

Throughout the weekend, Heist Bank’s pizza oven will be blazing, offering an impressive selection of pizza to soak-up the beers. The pizzas are cooked to perfection in the wood-fired oven and are topped with inventive toppings such as wild boar sausage, Bath chaps and yellow courgette.

The weekend will also feature DJs throughout the evening. This year, Heist Bank Beer Festival will be an exploration of new and lesser known beers as well as a chance to get reacquainted with old favourites.


Tickets are priced at £15 and include a festival beer glass and two beers from the day headliner.

Headliners: Friday 12th Fourpure; Saturday 13th Wild Beer Co.; Sunday 14th – Siren
