Vegan wine for miles
London Vegan Beer Fest is about beer, food and music.
Oh, yeah. It is also about vegan wine. A hell of a lot of vegan wine.
If you are one of those people holding off on coming along to London Vegan Beer Fest because you only drink vino, the following list is going to be the thing that tips you over the edge.
Our exclusive vegan wine bar is hosted by Sustainable Wines UK founder Tulip. Tulip has recently launched an eco-friendly wine bar in Enfield and sells a lot of cruelty-free wine online. You can read about Tulip’s wine businesses here.

It’s a shame the wine selection at the Beer Festival was emphasised before now. I’ve spoken to a couple of people who said they would have come had they known earlier. Unfortunately they’re now committed to other things but perhaps this is something to think about when advertising the next one?
I talked about the wine pop up in most updates and posts about the event going back about 4 months.
