Great British Beer Festival 2012 hits the Olympia
Date Posted: 10/07/12
Sample more than 800 cask and bottles real ales, ciders and import beers from across the world at the Great British Beer Festival 2012 this summer.
If you love the classic British tipple, you should book London hotels close to the Olympia between Tuesday, August 7th and Saturday, August 11th to attend the event.
A number of brewers will be setting up their own bespoke bars at the festival, including Marston's. Worthington's, Wells and Young's, Brains, Thwaites, Greene King and Fuller.
Beyond the boozing, there will be an array of food stalls producing some delectable grub for the 55,000 attendees, as well as a selection of live music acts.
If you're looking for something to soak up the beers, then you can choose from a wide array of food styles, including Indian curry, Italian pasta and pizza, German bratwurst and good old British fish and chips and Cornish pasties.
Every day there will be one band, if not two, gracing the stage at the Great British Beer Festival. These include Mad Dog Mcrea, who blend folk rock, pop and gypsy jazz, and Spikedrivers, a band that will bring the sound of America's Deep South to the Olympia.
