Leicester Beer Week

If you’ve been living under a rock all summer then you may not have realised that the very first Leicester Beer Week is just around the corner!

YES! From 20th to 30th September, venues all around the city will be celebrating everything that is magical about beer in all its forms.

YES! I realise that is actually 11 days, making it significantly longer than a week. You can blame Cask Marque for that – the dates are programmed to coincide with the national Cask Ale Week.

YES! There are loads of events taking place all across the city and I’m going to let you know all about them.

But first, it has to be hats off to the team behind Leicester Beer Week. They have all given their time voluntarily to organise this mega event – a group of like-minded community-spirited drinkers, publicans and brewers. There might even be the odd blogger giving a little time for the cause too. Odd being the relevant word there I suppose. Anyway, it’s been a joy to see the programme come together thanks to everyone’s enthusiasm. And it’s testament to the breadth and quality of our breweries, cider makers, pubs and bars that such a diverse and fascinating event is being offered up for your enjoyment.

So what’s on?
