Partygoers will be able to try all five of the unique collaboration beers at the event.
The party will run from 1pm until 8pm, with tickets including a half pint of each of the five beers and a commemorative glass. Oli Babas and Capish? who will serve a selection of delicious dishes, washed down with banging tunes from resident Five Points DJs.
