Festival of Coffee Beer Returns to London
Following a successful event last year, Good Beer Hunting is bringing its Uppers & Downers festival of Coffee Beers back to London for the second year running. The event, which will take place at Mick’s Garage in Hackney Wick on Saturday 19th May, will more than double in size this year. Taking place over two sessions, festival-goers will have the chance to experience some of the most progressive coffee and beer hybrids ever to be poured in the UK, created by some of its top Brewers and Roasters.
Uppers & Downers is a collaborative coffee beer series of events created by Good Beer Hunting's Founder and Director Michael Kiser and World Barista Champion Stephen Morrissey. The goal of Uppers & Downers is to focus on coffee as a specialty brewing and blending ingredient with origin. At this event you'll experience coffee beers in a range of unexpected styles, extraction methods, and blending techniques that showcase the innovative flavours, aromatics, and textures in the finished beer. The following brewers have already announced they will be pouring at this years event: Beavertown, Boundary, Brew by Numbers, Cloudwater, CRATE, Fourpure, Fyne Ales, House Brewery, Magic Rock, Moor, Northern Monk, Siphon, Siren, The Five Points Brewing Company & Weird Beard. The following roasters will also be collaborating with our brewers and serving up coffee at the festival: Artisan Roast, Caravan, Clifton Coffee, Dark Arts Coffee, Dark Woods,Has Bean, North Star, Or Coffee, Roasted Brown, Roundhill, Square Mile & The Roasting Shed. Uppers & Downers London will take place between 11am-3pm and 4pm-8pm on Saturday 19th May at Mick’s Garage in Hackney Wick. Tickets for each session are £45 (plus booking fee) with a discount available for members of Good Beer Hunting’s subscriber community, The Fervent Few. Click here for more details and to get tickets.
