Afterwards, the team from Rivington will offer a lesson in hoptails, mixing Bols Genever with beers and various other delights. London Beer Week runs from today (13 March) until 19 March. 

Last June, Bols Genever took over London venue Kansas Smitty's for a month-long residency, which saw the brand host an evening of trivia, showcasing dutch drinking rituals and serve a range of juleps. Plymouth Gin teamed up with Rivington Shoreditch to create a festive experience where guests can enjoy a selection of bespoke winter cocktails with a chance to win gifts.
