The concept has been created by Mike Hampshire, Founder and Beer Evangelist at Mike’s Tap Room. Borne out of a desire to see an event that doesn’t feature the same craft breweries as all the others, this festival is designed to focus on the small and independent. Those who don’t get opportunities at events like these, brewing on small kit, and producing great tasting, quality beers.
As much as we love the popular craft breweries, they get all the attention and it’s about time someone stood up for the smaller brewers!
In June 2018, the debut Festival of Brewers event took place at New Craven Hall in Leeds. 9 breweries attended, showcasing a combined 45+ beers.
Future Festival of Brewers events are already being planned, so keep an eye out for news on those.
