Hop to it and raise a toast to London Beer Week

By Phil Hawkins Monday 13th Mar, 2017

If ever there was something that needed more than one day to celebrate how much happiness it brings, it’s beer; there for you at your time of need and never questions your choices. To celebrate the amber nectar, Dapper Chapper favourite London Beer Week returns for its third year.

London Beer Week is a seven day celebration of all things beer, ales, lager and cider that comes to the capital on Monday 13th-Sunday 19th March. The epicentre of the event comes in the form of The Beer Edit, an immersive beer market at the Oval Space in Bethnal Green.

The Beer Edit will feature brews from some of the biggest names in beer, including Sharp’s Brewery who are back this year with it’s Lost & Found micro restaurant, an experience that will take guests on a quirky, gastronomic journey through beer and food.

For the true beer fan, there’s a whole series of walking tours available throughout the week, or for when walking becomes a stagger there are rickshaw tours to hop on.  Focussing on different breweries  each night, these flexible tours will help you discover London’s amazing home grown talents as you sip on brews and see the fantastic spaces that make the capital’s beer. 

A host of events and parties will take place all week, and not to be missed is the St Patrick’s Day Party on 17th March. Hosted by Guinness (who else?) the celebration of all things Irish promises epic food, live music and perfectly poured pints of the black stuff.

Other parties include the Keg Party Project, hosted by American favourite Pabst Blue Ribbon, which will feature beer pong, shuffle board and music from Cique du Soul, along with Estrella’s ultimate dinner party, teaming up with Tapas Revolution to offer up a family feast for beer fans.

With a timetable full to the brim of pop-ups, parties, brewery tours and supper clubs, this year’s offering is bigger, better and very very beery.  Tickets for all events are selling out fast and are available at DrinkUp.London.
