The first breweries have been announced for BrewLDN, the new beer festival created by the founders of Craft Beer Rising.
The international contingent of brewers and breweries is led by Denmark’s To Øl Brewery, which was founded in 2010 and which uses raw ingredients of the highest order, with no compromise in the process. Named the ninth best brewery in the world in 2014, it is famous for its youthful approach and hoppy, balanced, and complex beers, which are light, dark, strong, and simple.
Next is Cassels, a family-owned brewery in Christchurch, New Zealand, and one of only a handful of wood-fired breweries in the world. Its Milk Stout was elected as the best in the world at the World Beer Awards 2019, and it is joined by Brooklyn Brewery, from New York, whose Brooklyn Lager is one of the best known beers on the planet.
Ethical breweries are well represented, including Big Drop Brewing, a young company that has made a swift impact with its low-alcohol craft beers that really pack a punchy flavour, plus Mothership, a game-changing all-female brewery that champions women in craft beer with a range of innovative and award-winning seasonal beer collections, all with a social conscience.
Added to this is a carefully curated mix of local London and UK breweries, such as Brixton Brewery, London Fields Brewery, Aberdeen’s Fierce Beer, Tiny Rebel in Wales, SALT from Saltaire, Brew York, and, from Cornwall, Harbour Brewing Co and Padstow Brewing Co.
