London Craft Beer Festival 2024

Aug 09, 2024

We’re delighted to announce that we will be offering spaces to five Scottish breweries to attend the London Craft Beer Festival on August 9th-10th 2024 at the Tobacco Dock in London. This is an excellent opportunity for producers to showcase their portfolio to industry professionals, trade, press and consumers alike to a variety of buyers in the London and wider UK market.

This opportunity is open to Scottish beer brands with ambition to supply the national UK and London markets across all sectors: on-trade, retail, grocery, foodservice & wholesale. Having an existing footprint with UK and Regional RTM distribution would be beneficial to maximise the opportunities on offer as well as being able to demonstrate current distribution, ROS and capacity to deliver on scale for new market opportunities.

This year, the events are set to attract over 35,000 drinkers, buyers and other industry professionals. The trade only afternoon will be on August 9th from 12;30-4:30pm giving you unrivalled access to buyers and operators from across the UK.
