Another event filled week and a half in the world of Craft Beer and Real Ale up ahead, starting with the event that I am most pleased about, Partizan Brewery’s first birthday celebrations on Saturday 23rd November. The brewery will be opening their doors, or I should say door, from 11am until 11pm with rumoured music and some special aged beers making an appearance. If you have not visited the brewery yet then this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
The 31st Old Ale Festival takes place at the White Horse in Parson’s Green from Friday 22nd until Sunday 24th November with over 60 ales to try over the course of the weekend. Weather permitting their delicious BBQ will be serving up burgers and a hog roast too. Full list of ales available here
The next Sunday Session on 24th November at the Draft House in Charlotte Street will see one of my favourite breweries, Beavertown Brewery taking over the taps. Six beers to try with accompanying food pairings. The event costs £20 and a full list of beers and their food partners are listed here
Now moving over to South East London, The Flying Pig in East Dulwich is having an IPA-off between 6 UK and 6 US Breweries on the 28th, 29th and 30th November. Beers include Flying Dog, Lagunitas, Rogue, The Kernel, Burning Sky, Beavertown, Magic Rock and Brewdog. Full beer list here
Speaking of Brewdog, their highly anticipated new bar in Shepherd’s Bush will be opening on Saturday 30th November. The bar will have 40 yes 40 taps of top quality craft beer. Doors open at noon.
And finally, also on Saturday 30th November, two of the world’s best things, music and beer come together at the Independent Label Market and London Brewers Market at Old Spitalfields market from 11am until 5pm. Over 80 independent record labels selling and showcasing their music alongside 20 of London’s microbreweries. Beavertown, Redchurch, Camden, London Fields and Hackney Brewery amongst others.
