On a balmy Thursday evening, a group of Marketors’ gathered in Guildhall Yard to sample some excellent brews as part of the long awaited return of the City Beerfest.

This annual event is organised by the Worshipful Company of Brewers and has since become an established City tradition. This event raises money for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal while providing an enjoyable day for those who enjoy beer, good music and great food.       

A ticket allows four half pints plus your own souvenir beer glass to enjoy the delights of the participating breweries in the yard (all of which had donated their beer to the cause). Marketors enjoyed a variety of beer from different breweries such as The Five Points, Shepherd Neame, Windsor & Eton Timothy Taylor’s, Meantime Greenwich, Fuller’s, McMullen, Freedom, Drygate, Menabrea and Greene King whilst enjoying the sunshine and the music of two superb bands - Unswung Heroes BRASS and the Unswung Heroes Danceband.

Those that attended all agreed it was thoroughly enjoyable evening and one that should not be missed next year.
