|Last year's event was very enjoyable
The sessions will run from 6-11pm Friday 19th, 12-5pm and 6-11pm Saturday 20th, and 12-5pm Sunday 21st July. Apparently there's still tickets available for all three days - they're only eleven quid (inc. booking fees), which gets you a festival glass and enough tokens for five halves or thereabouts. You can buy more tokens of course, and I assume there will also be food and merch for sale as in past years.
This year all the profits - that's £10 from every ticket since pretty much everything is donated, including the volunteer servers - will go to Hackney Winter Night Shelter. This is a charity that provides food and shelter for homeless people during the coldest months of the year. Last year, the festival raised over £10,000 for the London-based anti-violence charity Art Against Knives.
More than 30 breweries, representing some seven different countries, have so far offered beer for Craft Beer Cares 2019. They include:
Brew By Numbers
Dry & Bitter
East London Brewery
Lost & Grounded
NZ Beer Collective
and Yeastie Boys
with more to be confirmed.
We already have our tickets for the Sunday - see you there?
