About Time You Attended: Heist Bank’s Beer FestivalBy Angelica Malin
Calling all beer beginners, beer connoisseurs and those who just love the taste of hops. Heist Bank is rallying the boozy troops, and is hosting their very first beer festival at their Paddington gaff on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September. Here’s what you need to know:
Heist Bank’s Beer Festival: The Lowdown
The weekend will be a celebration of beer from some of the UK’s finest breweries. Fourpure, Beavertown, Thornbridge and Wild Beer Co. will be headlining the weekend and launching special, seasonal releases and collaborative brews. The festival will also feature European craft beers such as To Øl from Copenhagen and Norwegian Lervig which will be pouring alongside New Zealand’s finest Yeastie Boys and 8 Wired. The festival headliners will be running workshops in the Heist Bank games room.

Heist Bank’s Beer Festival: Food
The weekend will combine beer with its natural culinary counterpart: pizza. The pizza oven will be blazing throughout offering a great selection of pizzas to soak-up the beer. Heist Bank’s homemade sourdough pizzas are cooked to perfection in the wood-fired pizza oven and are topped with both classic and inventive toppings such as smoked lardo, Birchden farm asparagus, burnt shallots and cured meats from Hackney based Black Hand foods.
With 30+ breweries on board and over 100 beers available to try from cask and keg during the weekend, Heist Bank Beer Festival will be an exploration of new beers or a chance to get reacquainted with old favourites.
