Craft Beer Rising

Apparently its inaugural festival last year was somewhat of a success, so CBR (http://www.craftbeerrising.co.uk/) is back oncemore. It's at the Old Truman Brewery in the hipster heart of London, Shoreditch, and runs from the 21st-23rd of February. Entry is organised in slots, and looking at it I reckon Friday 21st 7pm-Midnight makes the most sense (and is better value for money). Entry for this slot is £15 (http://craftbeerrising.gigantic.com/craft-beer-rising-2014/old-truman-brewery/2013-09-26-00-00), which gets you a glass and £5 of Beer Tokens), tickets need to be bought in advance, there'll be music and food.

      If no-one has one on here, I'd keep an eye on the CBR Facebook and twitter in case of returns/releases.
