The organisers of the annual London Cocktail Week have announced plans to launch another celebration of drink: London Beer Week.

Running from February 16 to 22 next year, the festival will be set among London’s top pubs, bars and breweries, including self-guided tours, promotions, tastings and other events.

It is being organised by ABV Global which runs London Cocktail Week in October and, since its launch this year, London Wine Week in the spring. Like those, London Beer Week will offer wristbands for people to buy to gain access to activities along with a pocket-sized guidebook to venues taking part.

It will tie in with the third outing for Craft Beer Rising (pictured), the festival of beer, music and street food that will be at the Old Truman Brewery in east London’s Brick Lane from February 19 to 22.

Simon Dehany, one of the organisers of next year’s Craft Beer Rising, said: “Craft Beer Rising are delighted to partner with London Beer Week in what will be a welcome addition to the drinker’s calendar in the capital.

“The rise of the craft beer movement has been significant in the last few years and we will be looking forward to integrating our own established festival into the wider activities that London Beer Week will be hosting.

“This is a great move forward for both parties involved and keeps London at the cutting edge of the craft beer movement.”

This year’s London Cocktail Week will be from October 6 to 12 while next year’s London Wine Week will run from May 18 to 24, tying in with London Wine Fair from May 18 to 20.
