WELCOME TO GOOD BEER WEEK VIRTUAL FESTIVAL
Good Beer Week has always been about supporting great breweries and venues with an annual celebration.
In 2020 we need to take events online, rather than into the venues, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep the spirit of GBW going. This year from May 15 to 24 we will share our favourite memories of previous years, host industry talks, and enjoy online events and virtual beers. In many ways it’s a lot like our first ever Good Beer Week; finding ways to celebrate the amazing breweries and venues behind the good beer.
Check out the events, pick up some beers, and keep supporting your favourite brewers, pubs, bottle shops, and restaurants. Right now, they need a Good Beer Week more than ever.

At Wolf of the Willows reckons we reckon there's nothing better than good beer.... the one wee exception to this is cooking with beer, then eating that tasty dish with a beer in hand. We've partnered up with a few mates to give create our ISO GBW "Cooking with Beer" series - step by step, simple instructive videos and recipes, that you can turn the most basic home kitchen in a Michelin Star restaurant, all whilst having to 'sample' the ingredients. Enjoy.
