Beer Tastings

We've been hosting beer tasting sessions since the early days of London Beer Lab. Attending one of our regular weekly tasting sessions, special theme based one-off sessions or bespoke private sessions - you'll find beer tastings are always fun and informative! Whether looking for a special gift or a shared experience with friends, we've an option just for you. 

Below you'll find further information on gift vouchers, booking your experience or examples of private sessions we've hosted in the past.

These regular beer tasting sessions have proved immensely popular since first introduced, with sessions frequently being booked up weeks in advance and some fans returning multiple times over the years! The basic premise is we believe there is a beer for everyone and over the course of 10 beers we look to explore a variety of styles, strength and flavours.

What you need to know:
  • As you might imagine, beer tastings are strictly over 18 and we operate a challenge 25 policy.
  • Tasting measures are approximately 100 ml so you won't be rolling out of the place.
  • Sessions run approximately 90 to 120 minutes (most of the time).
  • The vast majority of beer will contain gluten but it's also possible that beers contain a number of other allergens, if you or any of your party has allergies please let our team know on arrival.
  • Friends not attending the tasting can be seated downstairs in our taproom during the tasting, there is rarely space to host non attendees in our workshop space where tastings will take place in.
  • We are not able to offer ad hoc tasting sessions or start sessions earlier or later. You'll find a link below to upcoming sessions.
Sessions run every Friday evening and some additional sessions are added during periods of peak demand. You can be book via our booking software hosted on Planyo (those with 3rd party vouchers should see booking instructions below). Ready to book a date - click here
