The Great British Beer FestivalOver 66,000 people flock to this massive celebration of our national drink, which features over 1,000 real ales, ciders, perries and beers from around the world. There are over 400 different British breweries featured at the Great British Beer Festival, from Loch Lomond in Scotland to Salcombe in Cornwall as well as local London brewers like Gorgeous Brewer in Highgate. New for 2019 is the Pioneer Pavilion, introducing live craft keg beer for the first time with craft beers by Tiny Rebel, Magic Rock, Wild Beer Co and Siren serving their favourite beers from recyclable KeyKeg containers. Although it sounds like a fun event, don't be surprised to see a lot of very serious faces and concentration; some real ale experts are genuinely obsessive - and for them this isn't merely an occasion to get sozzled. Tutored tastings are on offer for anyone who wants to learn the subtleties of what makes a great beer. For the rest of us, though, this is a jolly day out with some delicious brewed drinks. Besides the amber nectar, there's a load of activities to keep you interested, including traditional pub games, live music and, to soak it all up, some hearty traditional pub snacks.

About Olympia Exhibition Centre

Times have changed since the Olympia first flung open its doors to the public on Boxing Day 1886 for the Hippodrome Circus, with the promise of a spectacle involving 400 performers, 300 horses and six "funny" elephants. These days state-of-the-art equipment and a team of skilled in-house technical and support staff are on hand to help event organisers provide both trade and public shows that are top of their class.
