Porters, Peers and Pilgrims: Walking London's Brewing Heritage

Old Street Station

Porters, Peers and Pilgrims: Walking London's Brewing Heritage

Join renowned London beer writer and expert Des de Moor for a fascinating walking tour rediscovering the days when the UK capital was also the world capital of brewing. Starting on the the edge of the City, admire the Victorian splendour of Whitbread and the original Truman's, see where porter was perfected, cross iconic Tower Bridge with views of Courage, see the site by Shakespeare's Globe where the Barclay Perkins draymen attacked the Austrian Butcher and finish with a pint at the Borough's last historic coaching inn, close to London Bridge station. Essential for anyone fascinated by London's history and heritage and the story of beer. A leisurely walk of approximately five miles (8 km) taking about three hours. Note we visit heritage sites, not working breweries. Promoted jointly with London Brewery Tours.

Dual Runnings

The Kernel

Dual Runnings

The Kernel and Partizan will be pouring a parti-gyle beer brewed together and separately. The beers are now nearly two years old, the idea for the beers even older. One beer is brewed with the first wort runnings, is a strong beer; a Quadruple, boiled and fermented at Partizan. The second beer is brewed with second wort runnings and fermented at the Kernel with their house mixed culture, and aged in their foudres.

The intention with the beers is to blend them back together to mimic a traditional pub practice involving adding a bottle of beer to a cask beer adding extra carbonation and lowering the temperature of the latter. These will be available on keg and bottle at the Kernel brewery with suggested blending rates alongside a small selection of other Kernel and Partizan beers all on draught.

London Beer (Boars) City @ The King's Arms

The King's Arms

London Beer (Boars) City @ The King's Arms

Beer Boars, an East London beer & home brewing club, is launching a new monthly event during London Beer City!

London Beer (Boars) City will give you the chance to taste a selection of those great 750ml sharing bottles you've been keen to get stuck into. With three venues taking part during London Beer City there will be something for everyone.

In keeping with The King's Arms's London Beer City theme, we will be sampling Nordic beers only at the tasting - so it will be a showcase of the best Scandinavian brewers out there! Each ticket will get the participant 100ml of amazing from EIGHT different sharing bottles (and maybe some draught too).

We will taste the beers every 15 minutes allowing you time to try other beers on the bar from the wide selection of carefully-curated draught beer brought in specially for London Beer City.

Limited tickets so get yours today!
