Following a highly successful event last year, charity beer festival Craft Beer Cares returns to London from the 19th to the 21st of July 2019.
The event will take place at the Hackney-based London Fields Brewery, and will feature beer from over 30 breweries including Beavertown, Cloudwater and Denmark’s Dry and Bitter and Mikkeller.
Last year the event raised over £10,000 for London-based anti-violence charity Art Against Knives; proceeds from this event will be donated to local homeless charity - Hackney Winter Night Shelter. “From November through to March, the coldest months of the year, Hackney Winter Night Shelter opens its doors to the most vulnerable in our community. We offer food, a warm bed and a warm welcome each night for those who would otherwise be sleeping rough as well as support people to access the help that they need to overcome barriers and help them to secure more stable move-on accommodation.” Christina Ball of the charity said. “Any money raised would be of enormous benefit and used to provide food for our guests and towards heating the shelter venues.”
Craft Beer Cares will run sessions from 6pm-11pm on Friday 19th, 12 – 5pm and 6pm – 11pm on Saturday 20th, and 12pm – 5pm on Sunday 21st. Tickets for each session are priced at £10 per person and includes a Craft Beer Cares branded glass and ten beer tokens, which can be used to purchase up to five servings of beer by the half pint (beers will be priced according to ABV, with stronger beers costing more tokens.) Additional tokens will be available for purchase within the festival itself.
