#KBCFest is back!

 

We will once again be taking over the beautiful Charlton Park Rugby Club from 25-27 May and will be bringing you the finest beers and ciders, both from SE London itself and from wider afield. With 50 beers and more than 20 ciders and perries to choose from, there’ll be something for everyone.

Our team of friendly volunteers will be on hand to help you find a brew you love. Think you don’t like beer? Come along and give us a chance to convert you! If all else fails, wine, spirits and soft drinks will be available from the club bar.

If you fancy something a little bit different, Water Into Beer will be bringing down some bottled beers on the Friday and Saturday and if you’re lucky you may catch them doing a tutored tasting. Can’t wait to check them out? Visit their Brockley shop – details here: http://www.waterintobeer.co.uk/

We also have some fantastic food options for you this year. We’re delighted to welcome back Wandercrust pizza on the Thursday and Friday – find out more about their fantastic wood-fired pizzas at https://wandercrust.com/

We’re equally excited about welcoming some new faces to the festival. The Premier Hog Roast Co will be serving up porky goodness all weekend – check them out at http://premier-hogco.co.uk/ – and Epic Pies https://www.epicpies.co.uk/ will be proving that beer and pies go together like bank holidays and rain (just kidding – we’re hoping for more of the gorgeous weather we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of years!) We’re making sure that there are options for both vegetarians and vegans so nobody should go hungry!

On hand to entertain you on Thursday evening will be the Champion Hillbillies, and on Saturday evening we welcome Little Beach. Both bands can be found on Facebook if you want to check them out before the event.

We’re really grateful to our sponsors The Long Pond, Hop Stuff and Southwark Brewing, who are great friends and supporters of the festival. We’ll have a few Hop Stuff and Southwark beers on for you to sample so come down and give them a go.

The festival runs from 25-27 May. We’re open from 12pm to 10.30pm and admission is just £1 if you’re a CAMRA member, or £2 otherwise. The address is Charlton Park Rugby Football Club, 60A Broad Walk, Kidbrooke SE3 8NB. The nearest station is Kidbrooke; buses 132 and 286 stop on Rochester Way at the bottom of Broad Walk. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
