Enjoy real ale and British grub at Shoreditch's beer fest

Strongroom Bar & Kitchen is hosting Shoreditch’s first real-ale festival from 19-22 April.

Designed for ale aficionados and novices alike, the festival will showcase both established and up-and-coming craft beers from 17 UK breweries – both large and small – including examples from the burgeoning London brewing community.

Strongroom’s chefs will lend their expertise to the event, serving traditional British dishes throughout the day, such as pie and mash and gourmet sausages made with their own-brew dark stout. Live music during the event will keep the mood upbeat.

The festival will take place from 12N-late at Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on Curtain Road. Entry is free. For more information, visit strongroombar.com.
