A New London Home-brewing Festival

Earlier this year we heard that the London and South East Craft Brewing Festival, which has been held annually in Sutton, was not going ahead.

I am pleased to announce that the London Amateur Brewers have taken over the organisation of this fantastic event and a date and new venue have now been decided.

Key to the aims of the new organisers is to improve the image and quality of home brewed beer by providing quality judging feedback to entrants. The organisers want to continue the social time or festival time which happens after the judging has finished as it is so popular and allows competitors to compare their beers with their friends. The organisers are also encouraging entries in a wider range of style categories this year.

The competition will take place on the 12th November 2011 and the new location in Wimbledon has excellent public transport links for competitors and supporters.

Pre-registration of the competition entries are being encouraged to help the organisers with the administration and setting-out. Information about how to enter and participate can be found on the competition web site:
