August sees the return of the ever popular Great British Beer Festival at the Olympia exhibition centre.
Over 50,000 people usually attend the event, and this year they will be spoilt for choice with over 900 real ales, ciders, perries and foreign beers available to taste.
It is easily the UK’s biggest beer festival , but it is not quantity but quality that appeal to many of the drinkers who will find some old favourites and new beers to tempt them.
The Beer festival takes place across two halls; the Olympia Grand and the Olympia National. Each hall will have a number of bars serving real ale from hundreds of breweries of all shapes and sizes across the UK, as well as brewery bars where you can try both well-known brews and limited edition beers from some of the UK’s biggest and best real ale brewers. As well as that there’ll be some fantastic international draught and bottled beers from the likes of Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, and the always popular American Cask bar. Both halls will have large seating areas with food and merchandise stalls.
