Central Beer District

A craft beer bar is popping up at the Queen Vic Market for one month.

Local craft beer lovers have a tasty new pop-up to cosy up to this winter, with the launch of Central Beer District at the Queen Victoria Market next month.

Taking over the market's A-Shed every Saturday and Sunday, from August 4 until September 9, the pop-up beer bar is out to celebrate some of the best drops our local craft beer scene has to offer.

Headed up by emerging act Brick Lane Brewing Co, the event will hero a different guest brewery each week, with appearances by Hop Nation, Two Birds Brewing, Stomping Ground, Brewmanity and Coldstream Brewery already locked in. Punters will be able to meet the brewers, have beer-related chin wags, and of course, sample a stack of tasty drops, from old favourites, to experimental new creations.

To match, there'll be musical delights from the likes of retro rockers Jukebox Racket and Chicago-style blues act Jules Boult, and a barbecue-heavy menu courtesy of food truck Digging For Fire. Dishes like a 12-hour pulled pork with lime mayo and a barbecue chilli chicken burger with harissa and fennel yoghurt promise to work a treat alongside those crafty brews.
