Introduction to IPA - Thursday 4 August (18:00 - 18:45)

(13 tickets remaining)

If you went back to the 1800’s then it might be the case that people had a distinct idea as to what an IPA was. But in 2022, brewers are more experimental and only a few beers on today’s market would Victorians recognise as an IPA. This session will show through five beers how IPAs have changed over the years and why, covering both traditional and untraditional but all having the usual hallmark of an IPA, hops! This ticket does not cover admission to the festival, you must also buy a festival admission ticket for the day of this tasting.

Event Details

The Great British Beer Festival is one of the biggest, most exciting and well-known events in the beer and cider world. Organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) it brings hundreds of real ales, international beers and real ciders and perries under the iconic Olympia London roof.

As well as the huge range of drinks on offer, you can enjoy a varied selection of street food and snacks. Entertainment is also included as part of the ticket price with live music in the afternoons and evenings. Why not test your skill on a variety of traditional pub games, and browse the festival shops for pub books and CAMRA merchandise.

We have invited some amazing breweries to join us with Brewery Bars, to serve you their great beers direct. We will also be offering wine, gin and coffee for those looking for a little break from all things beer.

Due to ongoing renovations at Olympia London, entrance to this year's festival will be through the Apex Room on the corner of Olympia Way and the A315
