Craft Beer Rising

  • The Old Truman Brewery 91 Brick Lane, Shoreditch London, E1 6QL (map)

Beer and cider aficionados can look forward to sampling over 600 different beers and ciders next month as the UK’s favourite beer festival, CBR London 2016, takes over The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.

The Beer

his year see’s our largest and most diverse mix so far. From established UK breweries such as Beavertown, Thornbridge, and Harviestoun, to international talent from Little Bichos, Lagunitas, Mikkheller, and Bronx Brewery to independent family brewer’s Elgoods and Adnams via relative newcomers including Bad Seed and Mondo, CBR is now recognised as the launch pad event in the UK’s beer calendar for new and exciting brews. It is the place for beer fans to discover the brewing world’s latest product launches, new recipes and innovations and the rare chance to meet the faces behind the brands.

The Music

In keeping with bringing the best music to CBR London, we are proud to announce that James Lavelle (responsible for the genre defining Mo Wax record label and UNKLE project) and Rob da Bank (THE man behind 'Bestival' and Sunday Best Records) will be our Friday and Saturday night headliners respectively.  

It’s a strength in depth line up though, that also includes Coldcut’s Jon Moore, Portishead sample digger Andy Smith and Boca 45 bringing their 45 Live show to London for the first time. The DJ’s DJ Ross Allen, BBC6 Music’s Don Letts, music journo Pete Paphides and acoustic guitar talent of the Showhawk Duo also feature, with the ‘Lost In Cyder Space’ zone being curated by The Vintage Mobile Disco AKA Donna Somerset.  Put simply, great music to drink great beer and cider by.

  • Our 4th year is set to be bigger and better than ever. We have doubled previous capacity and expect 120 breweries to take part.
  • We are also introducing 'Lost in Cider Space' in its own dedicated area.
  • Expect, more beer, more music, more food than ever before. 
  • We will also have a new entrance (still on brick lane), No more tokens (bars will all take cash), you still get glass and programme / magazine with your ticket.
