The much-loved City Beerfest is back to celebrate its 10-year anniversary at the historic Guildhall Yard on Thursday 11 July, from 12.30pm to 9pm.

This year’s festival is set to be the most memorable yet, bringing together a selection of top brewers, a variety of food stalls, and live music.

Delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with The Worshipful Company of Brewers, the event celebrates a selection of the finest brewers from the UK and Ireland, including St Austell Brewery, Guinness, Harvey's Brewery, McMullen and Son's River Town Brewing, Meantime Brewing Company, Renegade Brewery, Shepherd Neame, Timothy Taylors, plus London-based Camden Town Brewery, Fourpure, Signature Brew and Five Points Brewing Company. Over 35 different beers will be available - including non-alcoholic, low alcohol and gluten free options.

City Beerfest has become a cherished tradition in the Square Mile, bringing together beer enthusiasts, workers, residents, and visitors for a good cause, with all profits donated to The Lord Mayor’s Appeal to support three partner charities.

Over the years, the festival has raised more than £150,000 for charity. This year, to mark the 10-year anniversary, the City Corporation is inviting visitors to book their tickets and raise money to support MQ Mental Health Research, Homewards and National Numeracy.

City Beerfest is part of Destination City, the City of London Corporation’s growth strategy for the Square Mile. City Beerfest 2024 is sponsored by Hempsons.

City of London Corporation Policy Chairman, Chris Hayward, said:

“City Beerfest has become a summer highlight in the City’s calendar. And as we mark its 10th anniversary, it’s a wonderful chance for the Square Mile’s workers, residents, and visitors to come together and raise a glass for a great cause, the Lord Mayor’s appeal.

“We’re delighted to work with The Worshipful Company of Brewers once again to celebrate the brewing craft and showcase some of the finest beers from the UK and Ireland – all in an iconic setting at Guildhall Yard.”
