London Beer Week, our city's seven-day celebration of beer, cider and the capital's incredible brewing scene, is returning for its third year, this March. But this is no repeat of last year, instead LBW is set to bring London a brand new hop-worshiping event - The Beer Edit.
If you've been to LBW before then you'll remember the hub with its fantastic pop-ups, visiting breweries and immersive beer-experiences. The Beer Edit is a bit like that, but oh so much bigger and, dare we say, better. More beer, more breweries, more parties and, consequently, a whole lot more fun.
This is going to be the beer highlight of 2017.
So let's chat details.
The Beer Edit will run across three days of LBW, Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th March. It's taking over the entire Oval Space in East London, creating an incredible beer village just off Hackney Road, which is a mere ten minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station making it a super accessible journey to this beer-filled destination. Book a ticket for the session you want, rock up and make a beeline for your favourite brew, get merry with mates and even discover new beers to love.
This is no trade show though, it's a full-on beer-loving festival and we're all there to have a great time which means tunes and food and an absolute ban on beer snobbery. Want a micro-craft IPA? We'll have it. Fancy a fruited sour? No problem. Refreshing lager? You're absolutely welcome to it. We're here to celebrate beer in all its forms!
The Beer Edit will also be home to some of our most epic beer parties this year, we're talking keg parties and even a St Paddy's Day Irish celebration, so if you like a cheeky late session with good brews then we have three words you'll need to remember: The Pickle Factory. More info on these beer-themed bashes will be released shortly.
So LBW is only on for three days now? Nope! LBW is still a seven day event with events happening across the week as well as our brand new Beer Tours guiding you around London's best breweries to sip from the source. We've just crammed the best bit into the long weekend at The Beer Edit but celebrations will be in full force from Monday to Sunday.
