Press Release: June 14, 2016

London, June 27th to July 3rd 2016 - Sample the best beers the USA has to offer at The Strongroom Bar's American Beer Festival, with fantastic events all throughout the week! All free entry unless otherwise stated!

Brewers from all over the Nation will be featured all week, including…

Brooklyn, Flying Dog, Founders, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Left Hand, Anchor, Sly Fox, Boulevard, Rogue, Fordham & Dominion, Goose Island, Harpoon, Captain Lawrence, Bronx, Docs Cider, Butternuts, Firestone Walker, Original Sin, Stone, Blue Point, Odell, Maui, Bear Republic, Abita, Alameida, Caldeira, Coronado, Drakes, Speakeasy, Gigantic and many more to be announced.

The Strongroom American Beer Festival gives you the chance to sample something a little different to the ubiquitous beer and lager brands you might more commonly associate with the USA, with events throughout the week to introduce you to the brands in more depth!

The 3rd of July will see us celebrating Independence Day in style - with live music, DJs, dancing, an American themed BBQ, Bucking Bronco and much much more.

Food all week long will be provided by Porky’s - their Memphis style slow-roasted meats will perfectly compliment our huge range of beers, imported from coast to coast.
