Croydon’s real ale fans will be spoilt for choice with beers from more than 20 London breweries on offer at the town’s first craft beer festival.

The two-day Croydon Craft Beer Festival at the Clocktower’s Braithwaite Hall from October 16 to 17 will feature fresh beer from 20 breweries, including the town’s Cronx, as well as bottles and cans from around the world.

Mark Russell, director and brewer at Cronx, said: “The beer revolution has swept London by storm, and we thought it was about time we brought London’s best beers to Croydon.

“We’ve been brewing at The Cronx since 2012 and it’s been great to be part of this community. This festival will be a fantastic opportunity for local people to try lots of different beers – and we’ll be supplying plenty of our own from The Cronx.”

The festival runs from 5pm to 10pm on Friday, October 16, and noon to 10pm on Saturday, October 17. Tickets cost £3 and are available from Freshfields Market in Church Street, The Oval Tavern, The Wine Cellar in Sanderstead, and Brgr&Beer in Matthews Yard.
