32 Beers in 2 Days (Looking back at London’s Great British Beer Festival 2016)

For the ninth time in a row, I visited the Campaign for Real Ale’s Great British Beer Festival in London last week. Out of over 900 real ales, ciders, perries and international beers I was able to sample 32 real ales and German beers (which I can’t get on tap in Hamburg) during two days.

A quick look at the main hall:

Great British Beer Festival 2014

Since 2008, I have been visiting the Great British Beer Festival in London, a great event organized by the Campaign for Real Ale which was founded in 1971 and has been promoting promoting real ale, real cider and the traditional British pub ever since. According to Wikipedia, it is now the largest single-issue consumer group in the UK.

In this blog entry, I mainly collected my Twitter and Facebook posts (some in German). You can also check out previous reports: 2008’s „Ein halber Tag in London“ (in German) and 2009’s „Drinking for a Good Cause“.

As a first taster, I put together a short video with some festival scenes:
