A beer and food festival is heading to Hyde Park for two days on July 10 and 11 to celebrate all things craft beer, street food and festival vibes.
Craft Beer Rising is in town for its summer event, Brew Summertime, with headline acts such as Joe Goddard and Joey Negro as well as esteemed breweries including Mad Squirrel, Mondo Brewing Company and Brick Brewery.
This new 4,000 capacity event will transform the festival’s unique space offering the very best in artisan beer, cider, spirits, food and music.
There’s plenty of choice with 36 brewers sourced locally and far afield, five drinks partners, a vast array of premium drinks and seven gourmet street food vendors.
There is the forward-looking Lagunitas Brewing Company which started in California in 1993 and has gained a reputation for its IPAs and pale ales.
Other brewers include West Country cider specialists, Orchard Pig, who use their own home grown apples and London brewers Brick Brewery who are known for their sour beers and summer ingredients from berries to cucumber.
Street food will be of the highest quality from assured and accomplished brands such as Flank by Thomas Griffiths, who offers modern, seasonal, British cooking.
There will also be plenty of delicious wood-fired pizza, gourmet burgers and some mouthwatering British crab as well as vegan and vegetarian traders too.
The soundtrack will come from one half of Hot Chip aka Joe Goddard; who brings a mix of house and disco with a real sense of party.
Thursday is headlined by the one and only Joey Negro, a long time disco pioneer who has shaped the genre through his own productions, DJ sets and labels.
