Craft Beer Battle
Saturday 01 June Noon to 10pm
This is the very first Craft Beer Battle from Tweat Up (the organisers of sell-out food and booze fights Taco Wars, Ginstock, Rumstock, Fifteen Street, UK Chill Stand Off and the legendary Ribstock) and we hope to you see you there.
Craft Beer Battle will become an important annual event for Britain’s burgeoning craft beer brewers and we’d love to have you along to support it. We’ve got at least eight of the best and coolest craft brewers competing in a blind tasting of their competition beers and we need your help to pick the winner. We expect to see up to 1,000 craft beer fans gather on the day at Merchant Yard from noon until 10pm in a beer battle where everyone leaves happy.
The first 500 tickets for the blind tasting (a ¼ pint tasting of at least eight beers between noon-6pm) are £10 and everyone votes for their favourite. We’ll announce the winner at 6pm and the bar is open until 10pm to sample some (or all) of the 30+ other craft beers available to buy on the day; making Beer Battle a mini beer festival.
We’ve also got some of our favourite street food people grilling all day - barbecue chicken, ribs, rice, buns and hot dogs from Bao, Spit and Roast, Yum Jungle, Mama’s Jerk, Vinn Goute and Rotary Smoke. Chicken barbecued, jerked, thai-fried, spit-roasted and soya milk-soaked.
You don’t need a ticket to come along for the day to dip into the delicious street food and grills from some of London’s best and enjoy the Merchant Yard atmosphere. You can sample the 30+ craft beers at the festival Yard Bar and get stuck in to The Gin Store until late. It promises to be a great day.
