Port Street Beer House (on Port Street no less!) are having an American Beer Festival from the 25th June to the 8th July 2012 and we’re all invited!
It’s the time of year when America celebrates gaining independence from us and we join in the celebration because of the ‘special relationship’ with them folks from across the pond, or just because it’s a good excuse for a party! So starting on 25th June the Port Street Beer House celebration kicks off with their first all keg ‘Meet The Brewer’ with Camden Brewery. May not sound very American given that Camden is in that there London Town, however they do adhere to the US Craft model. Whether you like the idea of Camden Brewery getting involved or not, the first event is sadly already sold out…..but there are more events to follow.
