The last Long weekend in May suddenly got a lot more exciting with a craft beer road trip for the lucky people willing to brave it down to South London. There’s a fair bit of information here sf get the diaries out and start planning!

Flyer - Route 37 Beer Festival

South London beer power houses The King & Co, London Beer Lab and We Brought Beer are joining forces for the May Bank Holiday weekend (Friday 27th to Monday 30th May inclusive) to host the Route 37 Beer Festival, a four-day craft beer trail along the No. 37 bus route between Clapham and Brixton.

The trail takes in a bespoke IPA “festival brew” called Route 37 which will be made by London Beer Lab and sold in keg there, in cask at The King & Co, and in bottles at We Brought Beer. Each venue has chosen 12 world craft beers as their “top picks for Summer 2016” to be enjoyed across the weekend, to encourage beer lovers and artisan brew fiends to come and try new beers and find out more about the world of craft beer.

The festival will launch at 5:30pm on Friday 27th May at London Beer Lab in Brixton, with the first official taste of the Route 37 festival brew. Further events across the long weekend will include a special “beer brunch” at The King & Co where guests can enjoy a third of a pint of each of the 12 Summer brews selected by the pub alongside breakfast classics with a Scandinavian twist by May’s kitchen resident Allihopa; whilst over at We Brought Beer Clapham Junction the team will be hosting flight tastings of their top choices.
