Kino Šiška


The British Embassy Ljubljana is hosting a festival of British craft beer from 7 to 9 September at Kino Šiška in Ljubljana. The festival will create a platform for 16 UK companies to meet distributors, pubs and beer shops from Slovenia and the region (Italy, Austria, Croatia). It will also offer the opportunity to taste premium British craft beer and ale.

Slovenian and companies from the region are invited to apply for business-to-business meetings to explore opportunities for business cooperation with UK breweries presented at the festival.

The social part of the festival will include a discussion about British craft beer and real ale, presented by Jane Peyton, a drinks expert, alcohol historian and Britain’s first Beer Sommelier of the Year 2014. She will also run a beer tasting workshop where festival goers will have a chance to learn what makes a great beer.

Beer lovers will enjoy their pints to a great backdrop of contemporary British music, aired by Radio Terminal – British Council’s Selector syndicate – and played live by an up-and-coming British band, IDLES.
