  • Canopy Beer Co., Herne Hill – Creating glorious brews, the Canopy Beer Co. stall at our last market was incredibly popular, and one sip of their Brockwell IPA will show why! Cascade and Citra hops collide to create a straighforwardly tasty beer best enjoyed in the London Brewers’ Market beer garden.

Seek out their Structure of Matter, a Belgian pale ale that could be signalling the latest trend for continental styles.
  • Truman’s Beer, Hackney Wick – The Truman’s name was revived by Black Eagle Brewery, selling new wares with the original yeast strain from the East London legend, as “a small brewery with a big name.” The Truman’s Pale Ale is a perfect ale to pair with the tunes coming from the beer garden, so enjoy its easy-drinking action!
  • Wild Card Brewery, Walthamstow – The wonderful team behind Wild Card are experts in the beer and brewing trade, as demonstrated by their card-based beers.

London Brewers’ Market Event Round-up: March 2017

On the London Brewers’ Market blog, we are featuring a monthly round-up of upcoming and unmissable events for London’s beer drinkers introduced by Rebecca Pate of Brewing East. Here are her picks for what’s happening in Londontown. 

February was a short month that ended on a crescendo with Craft Beer Rising, the UK’s biggest craft beer festival. In comparison, March seems a bit of a downer. Wages must be spread across a full 31 days and the weather isn’t mild enough to be considered spring. March might be a month to endure, but it thankfully isn’t uneventful.

In fact, there are a number of noteworthy events hosted by London’s breweries across the month, so let’s get straight into filling your diary now. March doesn’t have to be so glum!

SIGNATURE BREW NIGHTLINER LAUNCH: Wednesday, 1 March, 7pm-11pm. Those musical bunch at Signature Brew have collaborated with  Curved Brick Co to bring you Nightliner, a 5.7% coffee porter that guarantees to be an orchestra of flavour. They’re setting up shop at The Leyton Star for the occasion, including both keg and cask versions, with a one-off special available to boot. Those burger kings We Serve Humans will keep drinkers satiated with a Nightliner-inspired special as well. The Leyton Star, 116 High Road, Leyton, London E15 2BX. Free: https://www.facebook.com/events/380411435654626/

There are a few events happening across the residency, including a meet the brewer sessions (7pm-9pm on Friday and 1pm-4pm on Saturday) and an acoustic lunch from 1pm-4pm on Sunday.

Registration for London Brewers’ Market 2017 events now open

london-brewers-market-crowd-xmas-lbm-2016

With the number of breweries in London ever on the increase (we’re up to at least 91 breweries now!), this year we are introducing a registration form for London Brewers’ Alliance members to get involved in London Brewers’ Market events.

To ensure our market attendees get some of the best beer London has to offer, as well as to ensure our traders are prepared for having up to 30,000 people moving through the Old Spitalfields Market beer garden (!!), we are continuing the measures we introduced last year to ensure the best possible experience for everyone at all of our markets.

As was the case last year, all London Brewers’ Market stall holders must have 6 months’ worth of commercial trading under their belt. If you are one of the many new London breweries and have not yet been operating commercially for 6 months, you can pre-register as we’ll be happy to have you once you’ve been going!

Please register by Friday, the 17th of February, to be considered for any events in 2017! There will be another registration window later in the year, but don’t miss out on what we have planned for the first half of this year at Old Spitalfields Market and elsewhere!
