Fuller’s, London’s original family brewer, is excited to announce that it will be hosting the inaugural London Brewers’ Alliance Craft Beer Festival on Saturday 23 June 2018 at its Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, West London (Chiswick Lane South, W4 2QB).
That’s right a craft beer festival, not in east London.
The festival will be attended by over 40 of London’s best breweries. Each brewery will be pouring two lines of beer showcasing the depth and breadth of the London beer scene. Each brewery will be represented by a brewer, offering a unique occasion to meet and ask questions about your favourite beers directly to the people behind them.
John Keeling, Fuller’s Global Ambassador and Chairman of the LBA, said: “Finally – a beer festival at Fuller’s. This is something I have wanted to see since my first day at the brewery – thirty – something years ago. A bit like a good beer – these things should be done right and cannot be rushed. I am delighted that the LBA wanted to work with us on this and I am looking forward to welcoming nearly all the London brewers to Fuller’s Brewery and tasting their beers.
“I am proud to be the Chairman of the LBA. The enthusiasm of the members to work with all London breweries to improve quality, share information, and ultimately help each other make better beer, strikes a chord with me and I am eager to ensure London continues to grow its reputation as a hub and centre of amazing UK craft beer.”
