Recently there has been a resurgence of the art of brewing with a whole host of micro-breweries now based across London and we can confirm 32 local breweries will be featured this year.
30 of those are in London and include a number of breweries that join us for the first time, check out the list below as you may well know some of those local to you.
Bexley Brewery, Earth Ales, Hammerton Brewery, Hop Stuff, Southwark Brewing Co., Volden. Beavertown, Brew by Numbers, Fourpure, Mondo Brewing Company, Partizan, The Kernel and Uprising.
Some of those are providing Craft Keg beers for the first time here to complement our huge range of cask conditioned ales. The 19 returning local breweries include our friends The Cronx from Croydon and the brewers of last year's "Beer of the Festival" Gipsy Hill. All the local beers will be grouped together in the Lower Holmesdale concourse with beers from further afield offered in the Upper Concourse and the Red and Blue bars.
Altogether we have beers from 83 different breweries, and also 40 cider producers, presenting well over 200 ales and ciders for your enjoyment.
To keep the south London theme going we will also be welcoming one of our own, Jason Puncheon, to the festival as he will be available for autographs and giving an opportunity for fans to have their photos taken with him.
There will also be live music and entertainment, hog roast and over 200 beers and ciders.
