Three world record attempts at beer festival

beer festival

The Great British Beer Festival is planning to showcase three new world records at its five-day event, starting next week.

The show, organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) starts at Olympia on Tuesday 7 August with a trade-only day and runs until 11 August.

Last year the event was held at Earls Court and had more than 60,000 visitors, and 1,000 different drinks.

But with the new venue, organisers have scaled down expectations, expecting up to 55,000 visitors and 800 different drinks. The move is due to the Olympic volleyball at Earls Court.

In a summer of record-breaking in London, Dean Gould will also try to beat his current beermat flipping record of 208, and his world’s fastest 301 checkout at darts, which stands at 36 seconds. He will also try and set a record at a 501 checkout. 

Festival-goers will have the chance to play some classic British pub games such as bar skittles, and experience an eclectic live music range.
 
The joint organisers of London’s first Independent Hotel 12 show at Olympia claim to have sold 80 per cent of its floorplan 12 weeks from launch.
