Yesss! London Beer Week is on for a second year at The Old Truman Brewery. What’s better than this iconic beer spot to set off on a tour of tastings, pairings and brewing?! Don’t miss out, whether you’re a beer beginner or just full-on hoppy mad.

The Great Big Beer Crawl 

Head first to the Sharp’s Brewery London Beer Week Hub, to collect your £10 wristbands and a free bar guide, and more importantly, a few complimentary brews at the pop-up beach bar! The wristband gets you access to self-guided Beer Tours at participating bars and restaurants over the week, with £3 specialty beers and £5 boilermakers (a beer and a shot). Choose wisely. Fuller’s Brewery will be putting a twist on their Beer Tours, with a beer flight in each of their participating venues – three beers for £3, including two brand new brews.

Top tip: Keep an eye out for pop ups at the Hub, including a few Czech beers, Boilermaker twists and more.

Mon-Sat: Midday-9pm (bar service until 10pm), Sun: Midday-5pm
