Pitfield has been with London Vegan Beer Fest since the beginning and I’m super happy to have them back again in 2015.
This brewery is a staple of vegan events and festivals all over the country, so it makes perfect sense for them to be one of the star attractions at our little ol’ beer fest in King’s Cross this weekend.
