London was once known as the capital of the world for beer with the exporting of its famous brews all around the globe. Today, although there are fewer breweries, London has recently seen a growth in the number of its small brewers, which is being embraced by Londoners. But of course, London's reputation for fine pubs has always been there with some of the best in the UK to be found here and many have been places where history has been made.

Research has shown that over 60% of visitors to Britain say that they will visit a pub when they come to visit. CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, is coordinating a campaign to raise the profile of beer and pubs during the summer starting the first week in July, featuring the Ealing Beer Festival and culminating with the Great British Beer Festival in August at Olympia.

We hope that many breweries and pubs all across London will get involved in this celebration of everything beery and this website will be continually updated as we are notified of events. So why not take a look at what is happening on the Diary Page and join in!
