London family brewer Fuller’s has announced further details about the inaugural London Brewers’ Alliance Craft Beer Festival.

The festival will take place on Saturday 23 June 2018 at its Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, west London, and will be attended by more than 40 of the capital’s best breweries.

Each brewery will be pouring two lines of beer and will be represented by a brewer, giving drinkers a unique occasion to meet and ask questions about your favourite beers directly to the people behind them.

Warm welcome

Tickets to the festival are on sale now from £25 and include all pours of beer on the day of the festival.

Fuller’s global ambassador and chairman of the London Brewers' Alliance (LBA) John Keeling said: “Finally – a beer festival at Fuller’s. This is something I have wanted to see since my first day at the brewery 30-something years ago. A bit like a good beer – these things should be done right and cannot be rushed.

“I am delighted that the LBA wanted to work with us on this and I am looking forward to welcoming nearly all the London brewers to Fuller’s Brewery and tasting their beers.

London reputation

Keeling added: “I am proud to be the chairman of the LBA. The enthusiasm of the members to work with all London breweries to improve quality, share information, and ultimately help each other make better beer, strikes a chord with me and I am eager to ensure London continues to grow its reputation as a hub and centre of amazing UK craft beer.”

The London Brewers’ Alliance was formed in 2010 as a loose collective of breweries within the M25 to celebrate the resurgence of brewing in London.

Its main object is to promote excellence in all aspects of brewing within London by: "Promoting the sale of beer brewed by its members, participating in events that promote its members interests, co-operating with other bodies deemed to have similar aims and supporting the improvement of brewing skills among its membership."
