The London Bierfest, the capital’s premier corporate beer festival, will return to the City of London from 17-18 October with a new selection of award-winning, handcrafted Bavarian beers, as ABK Beer signs as Official Beer Supplier.

Taking place in East London’s iconic Old Billingsgate Market, the two-day Bavarian-style event is set to bring the spirit of the Munich Oktoberfest to London, promising a spectacular programme of live performances, unlimited steins of ABK Beer and traditional Bavarian cuisine.

Brewed for more than 700 years in Kaufbeuren, Germany, ABK Beer’s range of lagers and ales are all overseen by master brewer, Bernd Trick. The unwavering commitment to consistent quality has been at the very heart of its success and is achieved by using only the finest four local ingredients of barley, hops, yeast and pure water.

Guests of London Bierfest will be able to enjoy ABK Hell – the current ‘Supreme Champion’ title holder of the 2018 International Beer Challenge, alongside their Pilsner, Weissbier, Dunkel and Kellerbier variants. There will also be the opportunity to try Radler – an innovative bottled mix of ABK Edel and ABK Organic Lemonade*.

Joel Smith, Vice President, Arts & Entertainment Events, IMG said: “With ABK being the official beer of Oktoberfest UK 2017, we are delighted to be working together to mark the 16th edition of The London Bierfest. Every year, this proves to be such a popular event, and we are delighted for it to return to Old Billingsgate Market. The event offers the ultimate Oktoberfest experience with an evening of corporate entertainment, opportunities to network and team building.”

Mark Jones, CEO of ROK Drinks, commented: “We are incredibly proud of our heritage and even more proud of our beer, which has been hand-crafted since 1308 using techniques passed down from generation to generation. We can’t wait to bring our award-winning beers to The London Bierfest 2019 and deliver the authentic taste of Bavaria to thousands of guests across the two-day event.”

Tables for the event are available to book in groups of 10. This includes an all-inclusive package of unlimited steins of ABK Beer, wine and soft drinks, delicious platters of traditional German cuisine, full table service throughout the night from a team of Heidis, and Helmuts, and an action-packed programme of live performances.
