Look, we know what you’re thinking. Why would you even need an excuse to drink ale on a Saturday when it’s basically an East End tradition? Well sure, you don’t need one at all. But you’d be a fool not to do your ale drinking in lovely little Brick Lane café/fun spot Hawkhurst Vaults today, because as well as live music from Nessi Gomes, Chloe Jac, Joe Innes & the Cavalcade and plenty more, and on top of natural-and-healthy-but-still-delicious food from Raw Stories they’ve got some top quality local brews. The Redchurch Brewery will be pouring out distinctive, adventurous modern beers and the family-run East London Brewing Company have turned simple ingredients into marvellous pints in their microbrewery and will be bringing them along.
The Hawkhurst Vault‘s Ale Fest is on Saturday November 1, 2pm-11pm at 240 Brick Lane, E2 7EB. Entry is free.
