London Brewers Alliance Rising Stars - Tap Takeover and Meet the Brewers

If we are not all too beered out after London Beer week, our friends at BrewDog Camden have a great event lined up for this coming Saturday.

They have brought together some of the best up and coming breweries in London, and through out the day will have a selection of the best beers they have to offer. But not only will they have the beers from these breweries on, they will also have someone from the breweries at the bar to talk about what they are doing.

There are a total of 7 breweries taking part, some of which we had the pleasure of serving with at this years London Craft Beer Festival. We will officially be around between 5 and 7, but hope to be around to check out the other guys most of the day.

Rough timings for the event can be found below. But check out the official BrewDog event page, or the facebook event.

Hop Stuff: 12-1
Hammerton: 1-2
Five Points: 2-4
Orbit: 3-5
Brick: 4-6
Weird Beard: 5-7
Pressure Drop don't have anyone available sadly.
