A Special Invitation to the last London Drinker & Beer & Cider Festival, 15 March

Guild members are invited to the London Breweries trade session at the last London Drinker Beer & Cider Festival

To celebrate the growth of brewing in the Capital, the London Drinker Beer & Cider Festival will once again have all of its draught beers from the London Brewers’ Alliance or brewers in London.

The CAMRA North London Branch is hosting a trade session on Thursday 15th March between 3pm and 5pm, to showcase the wonderful beers that London currently has. The session will feature cask, keg and bottled beer and a draught cider, suitable for you whether you are a pub, club, restaurant or off licence.

Breweries all across London will be present; new and not so new, giving you an opportunity to talk to brewers and their representatives about their beers. Thanks to their generosity, you will be able to try over 100 beers free of charge.

Also, thanks to the support of Kegstar (, there will be free nibbles available during the session plus crisps courtesy of The London Crisp Company.

Go to: to get your tickets.

The Festival takes place at the Camden Centre, Bidborough Street, London WC1H 9AU which is easy to get to, being close to St Pancras and King’s Cross stations.

You are welcome to remain after the trade session when the doors open to the public to sample some of the other beers on sale. In addition to the London beers, the Festival will have a large range of ciders and perries plus an imported beer bar in the side hall. This features the ever-popular Belgian and Dutch beers plus a selection of American beers courtesy of the Brewers Association.

We hope you will be able to make it.

Kegstar rents stainless steel kegs and casks to the beverage industry.   Brewers and manufacturers simply fill, deliver, scan and leave the rest to  them. Each container has a unique 2D code, and RFID tag, that is easily  scanned from a smart phone (iOS & android via the app); which allows the  container to be tracked through the supply chain to the venue and creates  valuable data insights too. They then take care of the collection and return logistics back to Kegstar.
