Chiswick Festival

Driven by the success of the inaugural event the Fuller’s Griffin brewery hosted the second installment of the LBA Beer Festival in 2019. Fullers noted for its London Pride ale which has been a favourite with the real ale community for a number of decades drove the event forward..

The festival featured over 50 of London’s best breweries the reinforcing the depth and breadth of the London beer scene.

Each brewery represented at the event by a brewer, offering a unique opportunity to meet them and ask questions of your favourite brews.

The all-inclusive tickets mean your ticket not only allows entry to the festival, it also covers all the beer you’ll be drinking whilst you’re there! Add into the mix some of the best local food traders, and this is going to be a ‘meet the brewer’ event like no other.

Alcohol free beers are recommended for anyone who for religous reasons does not want to drink alcohol or for those who will be driving to the event. It is important to avoid drinking and driving. For driving lessons Chiswick driving school offer the best value around with automatc drivng lessons and intensive courses.

Tickets for many sessions  sold out within a few hours of going on sale and all the remaining tickets sold out well in advance of the festival, demonstrating the high level of demand. Despit some behind the scenes problems125 ales on sale a, however challenges were overcome and a great range of real ale was presented to the enthusiastic crowds. New for this year was a Beer Festival App (available on Android and iOS) which seemed to prove very popular with those attending the festival.
The range of beer available tends to vary across the festival as some beers can take longer than expected to be in quite the condition that we are happy to sell them and of course beers do sell out. The festival opened to the public on Thursday evening with 125 different real ales on sale. The final  session on Saturday evening opened with 103 real ales and closed with 64 still available. So once again, there was still a good number of beers right up to the very end.
At the Thursday afternoon trade session the results of the Bristol & District CAMRA branch Pub of the Year 2017 competition were announced (winner Drapers Arms, runner-up the Lime Kiln) as well as the results of the LocAle of the Festival competition. New Bristol Brewery Super Deluxe Stout wowed the judges (including guest judge Ashley Fox MEP) with its rich coffee and vanilla flavours and was named LocAle of the Festival. Bath Ales Prophecy was awarded runner-up in the competition.
