While we’d love it if the only beer you ever drank was from Brooklyn Brewery, there’s much more great craft beer out in the world waiting to be discovered. And there’s no better place to see and taste the breadth of the craft beer scene than the 5th London Craft Beer Festival taking place August 4-6.

Join us at the historic Shoreditch Electric Light Station for three days of beer-filled fun. As you explore the former power station-turned premier circus school we’ll be pouring our top lineup of beers alongside over 45 other amazing craft breweries.

Since good food makes great beer that much greater, the festival also has pop-up kitchens from some of London’s finest restaurants and chefs to keep you fueled up for more good times. The fine folks of LCBF have also lined up gotten some killer musicians to get your toes tapping as you’re tasting. You can see the full schedule of musicians below.

So whether you’ll join us for one session or stay for the whole festival, be sure to pick up your tickets here.

Brooklyn Brewery Founder Teaches Ukrainian Business Class

Students Watch Steve On Screen

Through the miracle of a video/audio hook-up with Skype, I recently gave a talk and answered questions from business students and professors at the Kharkiv Polytechnical Institute in the Ukraine.  BEER SCHOOL, the book I wrote with brewery co-founder Tom Potter, has been translated into Russian.  Some of the students had read the book, and some had heard it on audible.com.

It was a fascinating hour and a half.  The students spoke very good English.  Each one came on camera and asked a question and a follow-up.  They asked about business plans, partnerships, raising money, corruption and competition.  I talked about a few run-ins with rough characters in Brooklyn.  They assured me that corruption in the Ukraine was much more pervasive, and dangerous, than in America.

I don’t think they completely understood Brooklyn Brewery’s support for not-for-profit and arts organizations and its word-of-mouth marketing.

Their instructor, an American named Maryann McGuire, warned me that the mindset in the Ukraine was quite different than in America.  I didn’t know what she meant until she translated the poster they produced for my appearance.  The headline read:

ASK A MILLIONAIRE ABOUT SUCCESS!!!!

Video-conference with a successful American businessman and millionaire from Brooklyn, NY.

Well, two out of three ain’t bad.  I am successful, and I am an American businessman from Brooklyn.  The millionaire label is a bit premature.
