indiebeer Guide to Summer: Outdoor Events! (Part 1)
The days are getting longer and warmer, and we all know there’s nothing better than celebrating the sun with a refreshing cold beer. Luckily, London is a city of outdoor events and many of them have a BYOB policy!
If you’re looking for something to do outdoors -- after work, with friends, or even for a date -- check out our list of awesome events below. We’ve got your whole summer covered!
Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre (Throughout summer) https://openairtheatre.com/
Starting with Peter Pan and running through to Little Shop of Horrors, this open-air theatre welcomes pre-show picnics, including drinks. Bring the family, go with friends, or treat your date! Top Tip: Tables are first-come first-serve.
Feeling young at heart? Check out The Kernel Biere de Saison
This beer comes in several variations, all in a 750ml bottle. It’s great for sharing at a table and with a low/medium ABV it’s very light and refreshing for a low key outdoor event!
Luna Cinema (May-October) https://www.thelunacinema.com/
Billed as the UK’s best open air cinema, this summertime pop up bounces around a few different historic and charming venues. From modern favourites -- Harry Potter, Bladerunner 2049, Dunkirk -- to golden oldies -- Pretty Woman, Grease, Labyrinth -- Luna has it all! Drinks policies vary by venue (so be sure to check first!) but in general, the rule is no glass.
Feeling fantastical? Check out Mondo All Caps American Pilsner
Lagers are a great compliment to snacks - popcorn, hot dogs, cheeky chips! - and this can design would not look out of place at your favourite Marvel film!
The Nomad Cinema (16 June - 23 October) http://www.whereisthenomad.com/
Ever thought about seeing The Bride of Frankenstein in a cemetery? What about The Shape of Water in a lido? The Nomad Cinema pops up in the most unexpected venues in across the city and 100% of the profits go to the Sustainability Institute. Catch a film, enjoy a few beers, and give to charity at the same time!
Feeling dead romantic? Check out Dig Brew Kippenslurper
Served up in a large can, it’s low ABV citrusy beer so it’s smooth and easy to drink. Plus, this artsy can will charm even the most prickly among us!
