London beer week ends with Craft Beer Rising

London Beer Week comes to a head (geddit?) this weekend with Craft Beer Rising. 

It's a three-day festival showcasing 200 different beers from almost 76 global breweries, with street food and DJs. 

London Live’s Maleena Pone was live from the event to see what was going on, to enjoy a pint herself, and to learn just how exotic beer can be. 

She chatted with Simon Dehany from Craft Beer Rising, who explained exactly why the festival is well worth a visit and why craft ales have really taken over the past ten years. Simon also details what sets craft beers apart from the common lager and how expert brewers are experimenting with different recipes and ingredients.
