Heist Bank To Host Second Beer Festival This October

It ’tis the season to Oktoberfest, or to at least you wish were in Munich rather than one of the many London imitations. That said, some innovative twists like Vegtoberfest are welcome additions. Sure many are great fun, but often have a limited beer selection, for a very good reason.

If you’re purely a beer fan for the taste, then thankfully not everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and from 12th – 14th October, Heist Bank will be pouring pints for the second annual Heist Bank Beer Festival. Following a hugely successful inaugural year in 2017, the Heist Bank Beer Festival is returning to the Paddington bar with a carnival of cask and keg related festivities.

Heist Bank Beer Festival will have over 60 beers on tap, showcasing breweries from across the U.K., Scandinavia and Australasia, with 80+ beers being poured across the weekend.

The resident beer geeks at Heist Bank have curated a well-balanced list of their favourite brews across a range of styles to ensure that all thirsts are quenched. Whether drinkers prefer fruity ales, unusual stouts, or bold cask beers, the Heist Bank Beer Festival will have something new for the curious beer-lover to try.

Three top breweries Fourpure, Siren and Wild Beer Co. will be taking over the bar’s twelve taps across the weekend and will be launching special seasonal releases and exclusive collaborative brews. The weekend will also include hands-on workshops taking place in the ‘Games Room’ featuring the likes of beer and cheese pairings, beer games, non-alcoholic beer sampling and beer yoga. Does anyone else think that beer yoga sounds like a terrible idea, or is it what the world has been missing?

Throughout the weekend, Heist Bank’s pizza oven will be blazing, offering pizza to soak-up the beers and come with toppings like wild boar sausage, Bath chaps and yellow courgette.

The weekend will also feature DJs throughout the evening. This year, Heist Bank Beer Festival will be an exploration of new and lesser known beers as well as a chance to get reacquainted with old favourites.

Tickets are priced at £15 and include a festival beer glass and two beers from the day headliner. Headliners: Friday 12th – Fourpure; Saturday 13th – Wild Beer Co.; Sunday 14th – Siren

Tickets are available at heistbankbeerfestival.com or on the door.
