“We’re looking forward to bringing Beer Central back to The Digbeth Estate for its third year. This year’s event will be a block party of incredible craft beer, food and music. Beer Central is the first ‘all in’ festival which is all about exploring and discovering beer, and meeting the talented people behind it. We showcase a mix of up-and-coming stars to trailblazers of the scene.”
Greg Wells, co-founder of We Are Beer
A special festival beer will also be on offer for guests to enjoy. The beer has been created by local brewery, Dig Brew, and North Brewing Co. The beer is an IPA brewed with Kviek yeast, producing a lemony-citrus note cutting through tropical flavours.

We’re also excited to launch our special festival beer, created through a collaboration by Dig Brew and North Brewing Co. The beer brings together these two exciting young breweries and has one of the most eye catching designs out there. We can’t wait to welcome everybody to this year’s festival to enjoy some amazing beer, food and music.”
