Brook Green Market and Kitchen will be raising a glass in support of craft beer with a series of guided tastings and tap takeovers.

The Addison primary school playground turned market space will host four weeks of free weekly beer-themed events, which begins on Saturday 29 July. 

Visitors can spend the day sampling the best of London’s craft beer, street food and organic produce, while enjoying the bustling vibes of the market. 

The breweries featured include the borough's own Portobello Brewing Co (29 July); east London’s Signature Brew (5 August) and Solvay Society (12 August); as well as Woolwich-based Hop Stuff (19 August).

Tastings are free. It’s a chance to learn about craft beer from industry specialists through a series of talks about the art of brewing and the opportunity to meet the brewers.

Great British Beer Festival

Joining Brook Green Market and Kitchen in making H&F the centre of the beer drinking world this coming month will be the annual Great British Beer Festival at Olympia.

Organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), it sees the world's biggest pub created over five days from 8 August. It will highlight the very best beers from both domestic and international brewers. The showpiece of the event will be the annual naming of the Champion Beer of Britain.
