This summer, London Fields Brewery will once again host charity beer festival Craft Beer Cares from Friday, July 19, to Sunday, July 21. The event will see 30 breweries from over seven countries come together to raise money for local homeless charity Hackney Winter Night Shelter (HWNS). Last year over £10,000 was raised for London-based anti-violence charity Art Against Knives

Tickets, which are priced at £10 per person, entitle guests to a Craft Beer Cares branded glass and ten beer tokens, which can be used to purchase up to five servings of beer by the half pint. Beers will be priced according to ABV, with stronger beers costing more tokens, and additional tokens will be available for purchase within the festival itself. Attendees can visit Craft Beer Cares over a selection of sessions on Friday from 5pm-11pm, Saturday at 12pm-5pm and 6pm-11pm or Sunday from 12pm-5pm.

Breweries who have kindly offered to provide beer for Craft Beer Cares 2019 include Beatnikz Republic, Big Drop, Brew By Numbers, BrewDog, Brixton Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery, Canopy, Cloudwater, Collective Arts, Dry & Bitter, East London Brewery, Fierce Beer, Fourpure, Gipsy Hill, Hale Brewing, The Kernel, Lervig, London Fields, Lost and Grounded, Magic Rock, Mikkeller, Mondo, NZ Beer Collective, Partizan, Siren, Solvay Society, Stone Brewing, Toast Ales, Verdant, Weird Beard, Whiplash, Wylam and Yeastie Boys, with more to be confirmed.

London Fields Brewery’s Brand Ambassador Gabriele Bertucci said: “We are delighted to host 2019’s Craft Beer Cares and cannot wait to see the amount of money we raise for one of the most worthwhile local charities Hackney Winter Night Shelter.”

HWNS’ Director Christina Ball said: “From November through to March, the coldest months of the year, Hackney Winter Night Shelter opens its doors to the most vulnerable in our community. Any money raised would be of enormous benefit and go towards providing food for our guests and heating the shelter venues.”
