Bexley Beer Festival The Bexley Beer Festival is returning for its 14th event on May 9-11 involving many breweries including those in the Dartford and Bexley areas.
The event is run by local volunteers for all serious real ale enthusiasts in the region and others seeking to broaden their taste buds and horizons.
The festival has been running for more than a decade and is organised and run by volunteers with support from the not for profit Campaign for Real Ale.
As usual, the event will see scores of real ales, ciders and perrys from across Bexley and other boroughs, with visitors able to sample and get a feel for the spectrum of traditional brewery produce.
This year the Bexley Beer Festival will be helping celebrate the centenary of the first transatlantic air flight made by John Alcock and Arthur Brown in 1919.
The Bexley connection is the Vickers plane used in the flight was designed and built in Crayford, Bexley borough with a number of beers to mark the centenary.
A real pint with hot and cold snacks to round off a day of shopping or sightseeing makes the festival an ideal way to say goodbye to the winter blues.
You can find the Bexley Beer Festival at the Dartfordians Community Sports Club, Bourne Road, Bexley.
