This weekend, Heist Bank will launch its first Beer Festival: a weekend of keg and cask beer festivities taking place on the 14th and 15th October 2017 at the Paddington bar.
The weekend will be a celebration of beer from some of the UK’s finest breweries. Fourpure, Beavertown, Thornbridge and Wild Beer Co. will be headlining the weekend and launching special, seasonal releases and collaborative brews. The festival will also feature European craft beers such as To Øl from Copenhagen and Norwegian Lervig which will be pouring alongside New Zealand’s finest Yeastie Boys and 8 Wired. The festival headliners will be running workshops in the Heist Bank games room.
The weekend will combine beer with its natural culinary counterpart: pizza. The pizza oven will be blazing throughout offering a great selection of pizzas to soak-up the beer. Heist Bank’s homemade sourdough pizzas are cooked to perfection in the wood-fired pizza oven and are topped with both classic and inventive toppings such as smoked lardo, Birchden farm asparagus, burnt shallots and cured meats from Hackney based Black Hand foods.
With 30+ breweries on board and over 100 beers available to try from cask and keg during the weekend, Heist Bank Beer Festival will be an exploration of new beers or a chance to get reacquainted with old favourites.
Opened in June 2016 Heist Bank is a craft beer and pizza bar situated near the Union canal and Paddington station. Open early till late, Heist Bank specialises in wood oven pizzas, local craft beers, cocktails and games.
