Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London, E1 6QL, 22-23 February 2013. Tickets £10-12.



Across two glorious evenings and a daytime session (22-23 Feb) the Craft Beer Rising Festival will take hold of the Old Truman Brewery in East London to celebrate all things craft beer. Some 40 plus breweries will be fronting at the Brick Lane festival, offering a chance to taste their wares and impart their extensive beer-based knowledge.



As if the unholy amount of beer wasn't enough, Craft Beer Rising will also feature an impressive musical line up to keep its guests entertained, with acclaimed DJ Norman Jay MBE headlining, alongside mellow acoustic sets.  There will be delicious Street Food from Brockley Market and an opportunity to learn a thing or two from a curious Beer Lab created by Heriot-Watt University, renowned for its International Center for Brewing and Distilling.  'Thinking Drinkers' Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham will have you in their grips with an all-new version of their sold out review from the Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre, so be assured of sips, laughs and intellectual contemplation.
